Snapshot Saturday – Father’s Day

Author’s Note – I scheduled this post a couple of weeks ago, and went back to look it over tonight after having made one of the hardest decision of my life.  I am going to have to use these wonderful tickets without my dad this year, as it is with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to him this past Thursday.  I cannot imagine my life without him and will strive to continue our traditions in his honor.  So think of us and our empty chair at this year’s ball game.  I won’t forget to buy you a beer and some crackerjacks…

It’s Snapshot Saturday and Father’s Day weekend, but alas I used a photo of my fabulous father last week in honor of his birthday, so what should I share this week???  Well, how about something that symbolizes the gift we give him every year for Father’s Day?

Who knows what stadium this is?

Who knows what stadium this is?

While the rest of my immediate family isn’t very big on true traditions, Gwen and I are completely on-board with the idea!  So we started giving my father, a lifelong Yankee fan, a fun-filled family trip to a Yankee game.  For the last 2 years, we’ve gone to one of the late season rivalry games against the Red Sox, but as we aren’t sure what the Fall will bring location wise, this year we will be attending a mid-summer game not so rife with animosity on multiple levels.  We will be adjusting this tradition in another way as well, by changing the people who will join us.  We used to share the game with my brother, sister-in-law, and sister.  This year they will not be invited to join in the fun, instead we are going to bring our extended family and friends!

So who can tell me what field this is?  It isn’t the obvious choice…
