Vacation= happiness

February = snow and cold in Minnesota but warmth and sunshine in states like Florida….so me and three of my friends headed to Florida for a few days.

We had so much fun!  The beach was a favorite spot since it was sunny and 80 degrees EVERY day we were there.  It was a small gift after last year’s temps of 60 degrees.

We were trying to jump higher than the dolphins we saw!

Coincidently, the Twins heard we were going to be in town so they decided to start their spring training the day we arrived.  It was mostly magical.

Conveying our emotions going into Spring Training!

We saw many of our favorite players and got pictures with them…we forgot our notebooks of baseball cards.

Finger mustaches were a new trend we were starting with Pavano.

With my quick player identifying skills and Laura’s photography skills we successfully got pictures with the following players: Brian Duensing (P), Carl Pavano (P), Joe Nathan (P), Kevin Slowey (P), Danny Valencia (3B), Matt Capps (P) and Ron Gardenhire (M).  Laura has more pictures posted here.

We wanted to make sure not to distract too many of the players to take away from their practicing…

The coach of the catchers was very motivational for everyone!

Away from the field we had more beach time, took a road trip to the Everglades where we saw millions of alligators and cruised around in the convertible.  Vacation success!

How many alligators can you spot?

Vacation= happiness!

We tried to take this home...but Florida mostly just wanted us to stay.

  1. Sure you don’t have some extra Florida warmth and sunshine packed in your travel bag? Those of us you left behind in Minnesota could use some. Looks, and sounds, like you had a great time.

    Love the new look to your blog. Kind of makes me think I could be in Florida.
