Megan went to Spring Training!

I got this lovely email and the following pictures from reader Megan. Enjoy, and thanks so much, Megan! :)

Hi! I've kept up with your blog for a while and just made a trip (Thurs-Sunday) down to Spring Training. Thought I would share some pictures with you!
My husband got Matt's autograph. Said he is truly one of the nicest players. Took time to meet, take pictures, and talk to everyone. Even shared his version of breaking his tooth opening a drink story, complete with impersonations of how it sounds to talk while missing half a tooth. Also, can't get over how skinny he is. Like...really skinny!!
Matt again. All of the players were doing tricks as they were throwing and tossing the ball. The mood is completely fun and lighthearted!
Hudson and Blain were super nice also. Hudson even helped move the rolled up field cover after a fan dropped something behind it.
This was funny to watch. Looks like Yoga...but is actually them stretching.
This was right after Josh hit one over the wall and at the Mets bus as it was pulling it. They were all laughing.
Chipper seemed to be feeling good and took full batting practice with the team. He only signed autographs for the fans who had paid $75 to stand in a special section. The fans groaned as he walked into the dugout and then a few seconds later, out come the batting gloves!
Heyward is so tall!

Her entire album is here, and I think this one is my fave. Josh is so cute, and check out how the booty pops! Thanks again, Megan!

Thank you Megan! One of these days I have to get down there...

Every time I see a pic of Huddy it makes me miss him...poor guy's probably going crazy with so little to do:)
