Baseball and Apple Pie

To me there is nothing in the world better that the smell of fresh cut grass and cool breezes and watching a baseball or softball game. Anyone who knows my family at all knows we spend our entire lives at baseball diamonds. I wouldn't trade that for the world. I do however think it may have been a hard transition for my poor husband, who before he met me was so lost in this world and thought baseball was not a sport. Poor fool! LOL! Love you Jason.
Last monday we were able to go to a Bee's baseball game. It was a double header and it was so much fun. We were able to go with some good friends of ours. It was really fun to see Matt and his nephew Jordan and Brandon and his family. Andrea came with Jason and I and wereally had a lot of fun.
The Bee's won both games and we really enjoyed the games. Thanks to Matt, it was a really fun thing to put together and we really had fun. I am excited for summer and spending 90% of our summer at the park watching games. I don't know what it is about my family and our obsession with baseball but its our thing. Most of my family memories are at some sort of baseball field. And it really has been an awesome thing for us to bond over. Unfortunately as Jason can tell you if you marry in or just want to spend time with us you have to be converted. I think Jason has really grown to love the game and sees why I love it so much.
To be fair, I also attend soccer games so its not totally one sided. Just a little.

Disneyland '09

Disneyland is one of those places where no matter how old you are, you can't help but feel a little like a kid again. I love going there on our vacations. I am a total dork (I know SHOCK!) but I am when we go to Disneyland.
We went in February this year and we went for an entire week. We later decided that a week was just a little too long. It was a perfect time of year to go. The weather was clear and topped out at around 65 degrees. Which for me is perfect, I know most people don't think it is. We did not have to wait in a line that was more than 10 minutes. And we didn't really use fast passes at all the whole vacation.
We left on Sunday morning and arrived at our hotel on sunday afternoon. It was definately not the nicest hotel but it was just around the corner from disneyland and we figure when you are only going to sleep there then why worry too much about how nice it is.
On Monday morning we went and did the Character Breakfast. It was so fun, whether my family wants to make fun of me or not, it was. At one point we had the Fairy Godmother, Captain Hook, Chip or Dale and Eeyore at our table. It was so fun. It was a breakfast buffet for Jason and a Disney Character thing for me. There are TONS of characters. They are all over the place. We also saw Tigger and Rafiki and Minnie and Mickey. I really enjoyed it. It is kind of expensive but totally worth doing once. We want to make that a family tradition that we do at least once every time we visit Disneyland.

We had a lot of fun and will probably go back soon. Although my next goal is to go to Disney World. I have never been there. Well I hope you enjoy the pictures of our trip!
