I am so excited because pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training this week!  Games start up on March 4, which is just around the corner, and with the weather the way it is right now you will find us out at as many games as we can possibly make it to.

The Cleveland Indians moved to a training facility about 2 miles from our house last year (the Cincinnati Reds join them this year) so getting to a game is so easy and convenient though it isn't our favorite facility to see a game (that would be Surprise where the Royals and Rangers play).

We're also planning a trip to the zoo.  It will be O's first time and we just know she is going to love it.  I can't wait to see her reaction to all the animals.  The zoo by our house has a place where you can feed giraffes right from your hand and I'm eager to see what she thinks of that.  They get super close and stick their tongues out right onto your hand to get the pellets.  So fun!  The zoo is a breeding zoo so there are a lot of babies around and it's really neat because you can get really close to some of the animals.  They just opened a new aquarium a little over a year ago which will be fun to check out too.  I think I may be more excited about going than anyone!

E's shower is coming up in a week and a half so I will be heading to Austin for that.  It'll be a quick trip so O and J are going to stay home this time.  They'll be out for the big trip in two months!  I can't believe that E will be married so soon!  Yay!

My first thought about the zoo was that O will love the monkey's...don't they pick at their butt's???

J, B, O, J & Z said...

Yes, she will love the monkeys! And yes, she will probably like it if they pick their butts. She'll think it's funny.
