Florida Fun [Part 2]

Okay, so where did I leave off....

Oh yea!

So Tuesday, we went to watch the little old men play softball. Okay, let me start over because I don't want you to think I have a thing for old men haha. Anthony's pap is a part of a softball league. All the guys in the town get together & split up into teams. Unfortunately, Anthony's pap was not able to play since he just had open heart surgery. I cannot believe how these old guys can move. I was rather impressed lol After the game, Anthony & I wanted to go to the beach. So we drove over but couldn't stay long because it was SO windy. I managed to gather some seashells [okay, a lot of seashells] & found a crab & took him [or her] home with us [he/she was dead, of course].

However, Anthony was a party pooper & wouldn't let me take it home... booo! :( So now it is in the garden at his grandparents' house lol For dinner, his Grammie made this amazing pot roast with sauerkraut! I have a slight obsession with sauerkraut, I eat it just by itself [I know, I'm gross].

Wednesday, Anthony wanted to go back to Mesa Park to ride. When we got there no one was there! Then we realized that everyone else had school/work besides us lol There's not much to really talk about because all he did was ride & then we came home & I think we went swimming/hot tubbing. For dinner his Grammie made some yummy pierogies :)

So anyway, Thursday I talked Anthony & his Grammie into taking me to the zoo :) I haven't been to the zoo since I was wee little. Okay & maybe I went on a school trip to the zoo but that doesn't count lol I'll do a separate post on the zoo because I have so many cool pictures that I want to show you!

Friday, Anthony spent all day working on his bikes to get them ready for the weekend. For dinner we went to the Italian Club. Anthony's Pap just became a member so they wanted to try it out. The food was really good & I'm pretty sure it's all donated. I might've had 3 pieces of cake but who's really counting? :p

We left his grandparents' house around 10 Saturday morning so we could see the pros race. So we checked into our hotel & then headed over to Daytona International Speedway. It turned out to be a crappy day because it poured all day [I don't know if you've ever been to Florida, but down there, as the saying goes, when it rains, it pours!]. Anthony & I ended up getting drenched but we had a fun time watching the pros race in the mud. Finally, we decided to leave & get something to eat. We went to Ihop [my first time there] & I really liked the food!

Sunday & Monday were Anthony's race days. He had to qualify on Sunday to try to make it to the main event on Monday. He ended up making it to the main event in the 250 class but not in the 450 class. Then on Monday he didn't do so hot in the main event because he just wasn't feeling the track. Most of the tracks down in Florida are made out of sand, while in PA they're made out of clay, so that's a big difference.

So that's what happened on our trip. Sorry, this is so long-winded!
