Weathersfield Weekly May 31

May 31, 2017
Weathersfield, VT


We went to our first Boston Red Sox game on Sunday. Unfortunately they broke their six game winning streak by losing to the Seattle Mariners 5-0. But Fenway Park was just a magical as it always has been and we got see a crazy number of double plays turned. Let's hope the Sox do better on their road trip.
