Spring Training!

We just got back from a great weekend trip to Scottsdale, AZ for the SF Giants Spring Training. This was the second year in a row that we have gone and the timing couldn't have been better as we missed the huge rainstorms and tornado warning in SF for the beautiful sunshine in Scottsdale! We went with several of Jeff's clients as well as his boss Derek and his wife Michelle.

Jeff and Derek flew in on Thursday for some St. Patrick's Day partying before the wives joined on Friday to ruin the fun. ;) We met up with everyone at the SF Giants vs. LA Dodgers game. While it was great to be out of cloudy SF our seats were right in the midday desert heat so for those of us who had a little too much to drink the night before it was a bit intense. We had a great time with the group and its always fun to see the games in a much smaller stadium.

Later that night we met up with the group again for dinner and drinks that went late into the night. Even though we were the youngest couple out I think we were some of the first to call it quits at 1 am. This group is full of seasoned professionals!

The next day we spent time relaxing at the hotel pool and soaking in the sunshine. We also got to walk around in Old Town Scottsdale and enjoy a delicious Churascarria dinner. Not quite as good as the one we had in Brazil but still very tasty. It was a great weekend getaway but we were both happy to come home to see our pup, Barley!
