Take me out to the...STADIUM!

Wow, what a week it's been! It started off with both of us having a nasty bout of stomach flu at the beginning of the week. UGH! I highly recommend that you avoid it at all costs! We slowly recovered throughout the week just in time to enjoy Kevin's birthday on Friday.

What was Kevin's birthday gift? Oh nuthin' really ... just Dodger Stadium! Well, to be a bit more specific, LA Under the Lights at Dodger Stadium. It was an amazing event where participants could take batting practice on the field; pitch; shag balls in the outfield; play catch on the field; run the bases; tour the locker room; sit in the dugouts, meet Russell Martin & Andre Ethier; have dinner; listen to music; have a professional photograph taken... All in all, it was a pretty amazing night. Kevin and I both thoroughly enjoyed every single moment. Here are a few photos:
