8/20/11: 1st Trip for the Kids to Fenway Park for Futures at Fenway

We were lucky enough to win 4 tickets to Futures at Fenway from Family Friendly Boston.  We had great seats, and the nice thing is they were covered from the sun also. 
The event featured a doubleheader starting with the Red Sox AA affiliate Portland Sea Dogs taking on the Binghamton Mets from the New York Mets organization. The second game was the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox battling the Syracuse Chiefs, an affiliate from the Washington Nationals organization.  Plus lots of kid friendly fun including face painting, and balloon making.  Tickets start at $5 for Bleachers and went up to around $30. 
The wonderful thing is that the concessions were also discounted.  They had a kids meal which included a small drink, hot dog, and cotton candy for only $5, Hot Dogs were discounted to $2.50 from $5 and drinks only $2.25.  I also signed the kids up for Red Sox Kids Nation.  It was only $15 each and included a lunch box, Red Sox hat, and other discounts to area museums and Red Sox games.  I see on their website now that it is normally $25.
There were little games going on in between innings also to keep the kids entertained.  Here is Wally and the Portland Sea Dog.
What a fun time for the kids first trip to Fenway, and much more family budget friendly than a Red Sox game.
What a lot of fun for the kids so glad I won the tickets.
