My first MLB (baseball) game and blog.

posted on 10th of july, 2009

What an amazing 4th of July weekend. Friday was filled with my first horseback riding lesson, three rounds of Laser Tag, and a double feature at the Drive-in.
While I refrained from bringing my camera to Friday's events, I could not resist bringing it to Saturday's fun.
