Spring Training

Well, Ray and Katie are back from Spring Training. And my peace and quite is over! JK

They had a blast! Katie couldn't stop thanking me!

Unfortunately the Phils lost both games, but it is Spring Training and most of the regulars didn't play. I was disappointed that the players did not sign autographs at either game. Katie did end up getting a game ball from one of the umpires.

She got #75 - Jason Donald to sign the ball. According to Schmidt, he is going to be someone to watch in the future. He plays 3rd base and short stop. We are going to try to keep our eye on him. Hopefully he will play in Reading and we will get to see him.

Jamie Moyer pitched the first game. Katie loves him!

It's weird seeing Pat in a different jersey! He's still nice to look at!!! ;)

Ray took Katie to Clearwater Beach after the game on Friday. She didn't have her bathing suit, but that didn't stop her!!!

She also got to jump on the large trampoline.

It was a great trip for them. This might become an annual event! (but I think I am going next time!!)

Katie has become a pro at passing the time in the airport!

FUNNY STORY::: Ray felt the back of his neck getting sunburned, so he decided to flip his hat around to protect his neck... He totally forgot about the opening in the back of the hat. Check out his forehead!!
