Went to the Pawsox last night with J. and a friend of his, plus his friend's father. It was a perfect night at McCoy for baseball, not too hot, not humid at all. To make it even more perfect, the Pawsox came up with a 4-3 come from behind win. We got to see Red Sox second base phenom Dustin Pedroia make his Triple-A debut. I can see why the Sox are so high on him. He really looks like he knows how to play the game. He went 1 for 4 with a double, and also flew out to the warning track. He's also got a very good arm for a second baseman - he actually came up as a shortstop. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see this guy up in Boston before the end of the year, especially if Bellhorn continues to struggle.

We had a very nice time at Storyland in New Hampshire this weekend, although I have very little to say about the place that's different than last year's trip. It was raining when we arrived on Saturday afternoon, so we went to see the animated movie Madagascar. It was cute and had a few funny lines, but was certainly no match for the Shrek movies or any of the Pixar films. It was a nice diversion for an hour and a half, though, and the remainder of the weekend was sunny and warm.

The proudest moment of the weekend was certainly R. walking around Storyland under her own power for the entire 7 hours we spent in the park. According to my pedometer we walked about 4 miles, which is by far the longest she's been on her feet since the surgery. She was tired and sore by the end of the day, but she recovered pretty quickly.

Line of the weekend: we pulled into a full-service gas station in North Conway to fill the tank. The guy at the station asked me what kind of gas I wanted then started filling the tank. J. asked me, "Why is he doing that?" I almost always pump my own gas, and he had probably never seen a full service gas station!
