Friday, July 29th

Today was a little rough from all the fun last night, but luckily Jared, Shannon and I didn't have to go to work. We don’t know how the rest of them made it through the day at their jobs. Haha. Jared, Shannon and I had tickets for the Phillies game tonight so we headed down to tailgate at about 2:30pm. A bunch of Shannon’s friends were also going to the game so we had a big group tailgating. It was an excellent time. We got in to the game in the second inning and the Phillies were already winning.  We had standing room only tickets and actually ended up with a nice place to stand right on the railing out in left field. It started to rain right when we got in so the spot we wanted to stand in cleared out and we were able to move right up to the railing. We were so hot from being in the parking lot all day that we were all okay with getting a little rained on. We were hoping it would cool us off, but that didn’t really happen. The Phillies ended up winning the game so we decided that we are ok to go to Phillies games at home and just can’t see them on the road anymore.  When the game was getting close to being over we headed up to the 300 level to meet up with the rest of the people we had been tailgating with.  It was a firework night so this was a great spot to hang out and watch the fireworks from.  Shannon, our friend Jamie, and I all ended up being able to sit down to enjoy the fireworks.  After the fireworks were over we stayed for the announcement that the Phillies had signed Hunter Pence that day and then we headed out to the parking lot to have another beer while the traffic cleared out.  By the time we got back to mom and dad’s we were all exhausted and went to bed immediately.

Today we had another jammed pack day planned.  Shannon’s same friends that we tailgated with yesterday were having a pub crawl in Philly today and then we planned on going to Harriet’s block party where my whole family would be. The pub crawl started at 1pm and the theme was the 12 Pubs of Christmas in July.  Our friend Jamie and her family organized the event and had some fun stuff for us to do besides just drinking at different bars. We were split up in to teams and given scavenger hunt lists and we played a round of quizzo in each bar.  It was really tons of fun and a unique twist to a pub crawl. Jamie’s dad was the questioner for quizzo and came up with some really difficult questions. We didn’t stay until the end because we wanted to head to the block party so I am not sure who won.  My team was doing really well though.
