summer vacation

joe and i have been thinking a lot lately about our summer vacation. we go to san francisco where i have a lot of family and where we can see the giants and a’s play.

we could also go to maryland, where i am from, to see the orioles and nationals. we’d also get a chance to visit my family and friends up there, and i’d be able to show joe where i grew up. it would also be fun because it will be the first season the nationals will be in their new stadium.

other options we’ve been throwing around going to florida to see the marlins and devil rays, and going back to new york to see a mets game during their final season at shea stadium. that just seems so historic to me.

but, our decision has been made for us. joe’s best friend is getting married on sept. 20 near cleveland, ohio, and last night asked joe to be his best man. so, we will be heading up there and taking in an indians game the day after the wedding.

the question now is, do we make it a quick trip by flying up friday morning and coming back sunday night, or do we make it our summer vacation and spend extra time there, since it is the home of the nfl hall of fame and the rock and roll hall of fame. if we make it a quick trip, we might be able to fit in another trip earlier in the summer. i’d love to do a weekend trip to new york and catch a game at shea. i’d be really sad if we never were able to go there. what do you guys think?

    Make it a quick trip! Baseball is better than halls of fame.

    There’s nothing like spending your summer vacation in…Ohio. Haha, I’m only kidding. I’ve never even been there, and I’m sure there’s plenty to do. Personally, I’d prefer NYC. I love it there!!

    Cleveland’s not so bad. From what I hear, Cleveland rocks. And the Drew Carey Show never lies.

    You will always regret it if you don’t make it back to see one last game at Shea. Guaranteed. Make it a short trip and do both!

    You guys sound like us, trying to figure all the baseball stadiums we could get to. Heh.

    I’ve never been near that area so I have no advice, but sounds good to me!

    My friend is getting married in August in ECUADOR -and I’m the MOH – how’s that for a planned trip?!? I say quick trip to Ohio..

  7. Laurel says:

    I vote for quick trip, too, although I’m biased since I live in NYC and have never been to Cleveland!

  8. Laura says:

    I vote for D.C. of course. 🙂

    I say do both but make them both some what short trips… so you can do the wedding and a game… then head to NYC- see a game and a show… say like in May/June for NYC and then you have an end of summer trip with the wedding… best of both worlds!
