B & B Friday

It rained last night.  We woke this morning to overcast skies.  Believing...yes...believing the weather would clear up, we packed the car with beach supplies and by the time we were leaving, the sun was beginning to play peek-a-boo.  Turtle Beach was our destination today.
It was a little "cool" when we first arrived
There was NO ONE at this beach.
It was just too COLD for about...
20 minutes.  Seriously.
After 20 minutes the sun came out
Our towels came out
And we laid out!
Here I am loving the warm!
The Husband and I made Kidlet Three
into a MerMan!
Then we headed here...
After picking up a few groceries,
showering at the hotel we headed out to...
Spring Training 2010...the Minnesota Twins
in an outdoor game.
Soon, in the Frozen Tundra, baseball will be outside, too!
We stuck around after the game and what fun!
Delmon Young was the first one out of the dugout and signed autographs up and down the line of die hard fans.
As we were waiting, this nice man was chatting with us.  It was Denard Span's dad, Donald!  He lives in Tampa and had made the trip to Sarasota to see the game.  When Denard came out to the field, I asked if the two "Span boys" would pose for a father-son photo.  Isn't this cool!

Pat Neshek pitched during the game.  It was fun to see him for an autograph.
Anthony Slama.  Watch for him more in the future with the Twins.

Coach Gardenhire came out carrying Chipotle chips and guacamole (from the lockeroom).  I asked him if I could hold the bag while he signed an autograph.  He turned his head so fast to tell me "no holding my bag of chips!" Thus, a blurry photo.  The Husband laughed and told Gordie how much I love Chipotle so he'd better guard the bag tight.

Gardenhire signing Luke's hat.  Luke had on his hockey jacket.  Coach asked Luke where he played hockey so we got to chat with him for awhile.

Juan Portes got to play in the ninth inning.  He has had a great spring training. 
Our B&B day was really full!
Doesn't get much better than this...
