Mr. Cow went on vacation!


And we went along too!


Josh and I took that kids (and Mr. Cow) to Jupiter, FL and took in a few Cardinal Spring Training games.  It was a blast!  We went to a game on Friday, to practice on Saturday and then another game on Sunday.

Caroline loved trying to get autographs.  The seats that we had were right behind the Cardinal’s bullpen, so she was able to get a lot during the games and then she got one at the practice.

DSC00497 Caroline took this photo, Josh Kinney signing for the kids behind him.  This is how close Caroline was to the players in the bullpen!

Before the game on Friday, Lou Brock came up to her and two other girls sitting in the front row and started talking to them and offered to sign their ball.  Josh was standing behind Caroline nearly peeing himself and Caroline had no clue who she was talking too!!  It was very funny.  Then we explained who that was and she was very excited.  021

This was the only picture we could get because I had my zoom lens on my camera so it was hard to get a picture because he was standing so close to us.

After the practice on Saturday one of the pitching coaches threw William a baseball.  The Cardinal’s new starting pitcher, Jaime Garcia was signing, so Josh got the ball signed for William.  Caroline also had him sign her ball.

Some of the other players that signed Caroline’s ball included Skip Schumaker, Ryan Franklin, Mitchell Boggs, Kyle McClellan, Trever Miller, Jason Motte, Dennys Reyes, Josh Kinney  and Joe Mather.  Whew, she got a lot!!


Again, Caroline took this photo, thought I would post it since there never seems to be any pictures of Josh and I together!!

On Sunday we traveled to West Palm Beach, FL (only 20 minutes from Jupiter) and stayed at a hotel that was on the beach.  Caroline LOVED the ocean, William…not so much.  They both LOVED the swimming pool.

William was the little dare devil!  He finally figured out that he needs to keep his mouth closed while in the water and learned how to go under water without throwing up!  He was jumping off of the side of the pool and got mad if you tried to catch him from going under!  This summer is going to be fun!

A short video of William jumping off of the steps of the pool (it was really windy!!).

Caroline and I went to the Spa at the hotel and got pedicures, it was Caroline’s first ever pedicure.  We had fun and it was fun to get to spend one on one time with her.  She picked out our nail polish colors. 



We had so much fun and enjoyed our time together.  Now we are back home and trying to get back into the swing of things.
