On Our Summer To Do List: Go to a Baseball Game

Baseball, one of America's favorite pastimes!. We were invited by our good friends, the Rathgebers, to see a game at Provident Bank Park in Ramapo, NY.We went to see the Rockland Boulders play against Trois-Rivieres Aigles. These are minor league teams in the Independent Can-Am Association. We had a great time, and we got to enjoy the game and the amenities from a private suite!. There was plenty of food and drinks. We enjoyed the game from the bleachers just outside of the suite!

It's a great stadium with lots of activities for the whole family. They even have a playground for the kids!. Definitely a fun place to see a baseball game!

On Our Summer To Do List: Celebrate The 4th of July

I love the fourth of July, I really do. But once it rolls around I get the impression that the Summer is over!. The main reason is because if you go to the stores, the back to school items start being displayed; Summer items go on sale to make room for the Fall season, and so on. It's occurred to me that maybe, I should just stay away from stores!.
This year our 4th of July celebration were kept very low key. And for a change it was a rainy, cooler than normal day.We wanted to finish the day by watching the fireworks at a adjacent town, but when we were driving there we found out they had been postponed
till Sunday, bummer!.

Towards the latter part of the afternoon, the rain stopped, so at least we were able to have some sparkler fun.

   On Sunday we went to see the fireworks:
