So I thought long and hard about what kind of a party I would like to throw for you all and I even asked Z for some advice. He suggested that we throw a Lightning McQueen/Spiderman party and though I loved this idea, I decided to go with another one of his passions. This week at the Raising Z and Lil' C home we are hosting a baseball party. This is in honor of Opening Week at Fenway Park (yes I am a New Englander). Let's Go Red Sox....Fenway franks and 9 dollar beers for everyone!
It is pretty incredible that I turned out rooting for the good guys considering I was raised by two members of the Evil Empire. That's right my parents are big Yankee Fans who came to New England from NJ (my dad was actually born in NYC). Somehow I grew up to love the Sox despite my upbringing and a family rivalry was born :) Even though the members of this blog are members of Red Sox Nation, Yankee Fans are still welcome. After all, I have many Yankee fans in my life, it is just important that you all know that 2010 is our year!
Now I would like to introduce you to our team here at Raising Z. I have included our baseball cards below. Once you get to know us, stay and hang out as long as you would like, we are happy that you have come to visit. Oh and if you are wondering why you are only seeing the backs of us.....that is kind of what we do here. Once the baby turns 6 months you will only be seeing her backside too :)
