College High, Prom Woes Over, and Phillies Phever

College decision finalized, and our deposit is in!!! We will be Blue Hens, and their motto is "Fear the Hen".... No fear here, though, just excitement.

As of two hours ago, the prom issue was resolved also, and my daughter asked a friend who graduated last year.

Monday was a really fun day as my kids' high school marching band was invited to lead the Phillies into the ballpark for our season home opener.  The skies were beautiful and brilliant, the breeze just perfect, and all was right for a great day of baseball.

This new lens allowed me to take some great photos of the day's events.

The kids had about two hours to kill outside Citizens Bank Ballpark before the festivities began. There was lots of socializing....

Then there was some warming up....


Then there was the parade for about 100 yards - it was a very short parade lead by some absolutely gorgeous Clydesdale horses......








Jamie Moyer had a lot to say to Roy Halladay the full length of the parade - I'd love to know what he was chatting about.


Then a great game that began with some wonderful festivities.




 
The game was great, with Cole Hamels pitching, and the Phils winning over the Capitols 7-4


Yes, my new zoom lens allows me to capture great moments.....................


and also allows me to stalk my friends who are seated clear across the ballpark!

I'm sure the decision also comes with a sigh of relief. Congratulations on being part of the Blue Hen family.

I envy you making the home opener, and well as that zoom lens. Go Phils!
