Out to the ballgame

I went to a 60th birthday party today at Citifield, where the New York Mets play. Our friends Andy and Nancy planned a pre-game brunch in the sky lounge there, with 45 people: lots of family members; people from the camp they run in Maine for children with life threatening illnesses and their families; and a few friends from the progressive school our children attended together back in the day. It was great to be out in the fresh air on a cool fall day with old friends. We women took lots of selfies because, why not? It was only my second live baseball game ever, and the Mets lost, but the company was congenial, and I think Andy was pretty happy even though he hates to be the center of attention. He likes to make fierce faces in photos, but we caught him smiling quite a bit at the proceedings.

A gorgeous day for a game

Love these women

They couldn't quite do a straight face.

  1. Overalls! I saw overalls! It looks like it was a fabulous time.

    1. Ha! I was just jumping on here to make a Ms. Moon overalls comment. :)

  2. It looks like so much fun -- and your photos are always so WARM. Warm and inviting -- making me wish I were a part of them!

  3. Now THAT looks like a great way to watch a game -- with wine in a glass and congenial company, rather than strangers sloshing their beer all over you in the stands!

  4. We should all be totally unrepentant about our selfies, I say. Looks like a wonderful group of people surround you.

  5. Looks like a great day for a ball game.
