The first surprise I ever purchased for my husband Dave when we were dating was tickets to a Yankees game. He loves baseball. He makes the calls before the announcers say the exact same phrases. He knows the players, the game and the history behind it. For Dave's birthday this year, we took a trip to Sarasota to see a college baseball game. It was important for us because it was Bryan's first ball game ever! (Dave says he's already been to a game but technically he was not born yet so I do not count it.) :) The college game was played at the same field where the Orioles have spring training. We got to see them because they took a little extra time on the field. The colleges were a local Florida team against ... Notre Dame. One of Dave's friends, Chuck Ristano is the pitching coach for the team. The first baseman is Trey Mancini. His father is Dr. Mancini who delivered Bryan!! We had the fortune to catch up with both which made the game even more special for us.
It was so cold and windy that it was best to leave a lot sooner than we really wanted to but we didn't want Bryan catching a cold. We are already excited to plan our next trip.
Dave took most of the shots because I was taking care of baby Bryan. He's getting pretty handy with the camera because he took a wonderful shot of Bryan and I together.
