Tuesday we went to Viera, FL to see the Nationals take on the Mets. It was a cloudy day but still very nice to be outside, and at a baseball game! It was the perfect 'day after' event because I could just sit and stare. Some of the big names were there, but also lots of minor-leaguers. We did get Bryce Harper's autograph! And by we, I mean I, because he skipped right over husband and the other men, stopping for kids and ... me.
Tuesday night we went to one of my new favorite restaurants, the Ravenous Pig. It was fantastic - we sat on the bar side and shared a salad, lobster tacos, and Chorizo-Crusted Cod. All of it was fantastic. They had a great wine and beer list too. Next time you're in Orlando, definitely check it out - well worth the trip!
Wednesday we went back to the Nationals park as they took on the Florida Marlins. The day was beautiful but chilly and windy. I was very jealous of husband's 85 degree days! There were lots of major league player sightings on Wednesday!
We flew home Wednesday night. It was fun to be so close to the players that we watch in the big stadiums all summer. It was a great ending to the exhausting but awesome Conference week.
