Our Northwest Passage Adventure ended with a bang. We took everyone to Dodger Stadium to see the Cardinals play the Dodgers.
It was a pitching duel with Adam Wainwright against Josh Beckett. The kids enjoyed the atmosphere, the cheering and the food, although when the Dodgers finally scored a run, and the stadium erupted in cheers, Edie thought it was "too noisy."
Kate learned a lot about baseball and was amused to hear the opening of Beethoven's Fifth used to foreshadow a blow to the Cardinals. The Dodgers won narrowly, and we made it home through the traffic. It was a short night of sleep, but we were able to doze on the plane as we turned back to Massachusetts. We have been away for a month, and we are more than ready to find our own bed again.
After a month on the road we will live calmly for a bit. Maybe we will be ready to pack our bags again in the Fall.
