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