A Day with the Cards

Saturday Paul, Zoe, Zoe's friend Avery, & I headed to the St. Louis Cardinals game. Paul had gotten the tickets through the funeral home. And let me tell ya, the seats were awesome - second row by the Cardinals dugout! It was a little chilly, but I was prepared with sweatshirts, jackets, & a blanket. Everyone had a great time.

(Warning: Lots of pictures to follow!)

Instead they see two of my students. Amanda was there participating in the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk with Albert Pujols & her brother was there supporting her! How cool is that?!
