We are HUGE Red Sox fans.
I’ve gotten very lucky because I married a Pittsburgh guy who is obsessed with the Steelers and the Penguins, but when it comes to baseball he’s a Red Sox guy. Which means… our 5 kids are all RED SOX FANS!!
This past weekend we were invited on behalf of the Red Sox through the Red Sox Moms program to enjoy the Red Sox Winter Weekend celebration at Foxwoods! We wanted to go last year, but the snow kept us away – so this year we were ALL geared up!! The boys were GIDDY about heading there (even with 2 of them not feeling 100%!). If you’re a Red Sox fan, this is the coolest weekend to head to with your family! I couldn’t believe how much there was to do for kids, adults – fans of all ages!!
Per usual, we did our daily family cam!!
What kinds of activities were being offered to the fans?
Last year more than 40 current and former players and coaches attended the event including Dustin Pedroia, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, and Pedro Martinez, just to name a few. Each Weekend Pass to the event comes with guaranteed access to at least one autograph session with one or two of the attending players.
