Happy April Fools Day!  Did you get anyone?  Did anyone get you?  I'm not good at pranks so I just watch.

Pictures: Spring Break in Florida

Technically, I spent my spring break in Florida.  No, no, I don't actually get a spring break and no, no, it wasn't exactly in the spring.  But, it was in March and that totally counts.

The week of March 11 my dad had off and he's always wanted to attend an Atlanta Braves spring training game, so down to Florida we went, down to Orlando, Kissimee, Lake Buena Vista and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World.

It was a fun experience.  I love baseball.  I love the Braves.  Spring training is more relaxed than regular season.  We got to see the stars and the new guys.  It was fun and I took tons of pictures, because that's what I do.  Now, I'm sharing them with you!  The game was on March 12 vs St. Louis Cardinals.

I respect my parents' privacy.  I took some pictures of me, but they include one or both of them.  They don't want me posting their pictures so I won't do that.

#? Ramiro Pena (the roster says 8, but that's also J. Upton's number)

#72 Todd Cunningham

#74 Jordan Parraz

#34 Eric O'Flaherty

I assume it's a pitcher from the bullpen, but yes, that is a Braves player working out on the warning track, not an official part of the game!  No, I didn't get to see what he'd do if a fly ball came his way.

This Cards' players socks, not that he wears them up, but the stripes. 
Braves win!  Score 12-3! :D
