Sharing Videos

I’m working on a way to share videos now that picasa has met its maker. Conor is desperate for his own YouTube channel, so I have finally decided to help facilitate it. Now to find a way to temper his expectations of a million subscribers…
I love this video of Conor at bat. I truly love his swing.




If you see this post change it’s because I’m trying to find the right code to embed it, and I will add some more videos when I get free moments.

Day in Lowell

Conor took part in a baseball clinic at the Lowell Spinners. It included free tickets to that night’s game, so we decided to make a day of it in Lowell, and fill in the time between clinic and game with a trip to a park we have always wanted to check out as we pass on our way to a game.

Eoin looks good in the dugout


We got to play catch on the field before the game


We sure worked up an appetite for ice cream!


Rounding first


We had such a fun, full day: baseball clinic, Irish breakfast (for me!), splash park, National Park historic mills site, catch on the field, the game, the fun zone at the game, and running the bases at game end!

Entertainment at the Red Sox

My children have a tendency to be rather soul-destroying in their relentlessness to get what they want. Hence, the calling to go to Wally’s Clubhouse starts before we’ve even sniffed a hot dog and continues until it opens in the 3rd. I insist on seeing every Red Sox player at bat and then I usually cave in a crumpled heap.

We tried the Virtual Reality Home Run Derby for the first time. A blast, and Conor had some 500+ hits!


All eyes actually focus on the game once they have had a chance to play!
