When we connected at the game, we gave eachother a big hug and posed for some pictures taken by my husband. (Ramona made me realize that I've never mentioned my husband's name on this blog before, so I'll reveal it now! His name is Rich.)
Ramona then gave me a gift! These adorable Robeez baby shoes for the Beastie. I told you she was sweet!
After the game, we headed back to our hotel, where we introduced Greg, Ramona's husband, to Rich, my husband, and we chatted away the hours in the hotel bar. Rich and Greg hit it off immediately (sports is the common denominator for most boys, ya'll), and the four of us had such a blast. We made plans to meet up again in Niagara Falls (about the halfway point between both of our homes), at some point.
It was such a cool, wonderful experience meeting Ramona. So if you ever have the opportunity to meet a blogfriend in real life, do it!
The rest of our trip was fun as well. This was the view from our hotel room, where upon check-in we learned we had been upgraded to their "private Club Level floor." That meant complimentary afternoon tea, hors de ourves at night, and free drinks.
The baseball game was alright, slightly spoiled by a rowdy group of fans siting behind us who spent the entire evening screaming at the players, who couldn't hear them anyway. I'm not really a baseball fan, but I do like to people-watch.
On the way home, we stopped at IKEA (yay!). We spent a few hours there, and I bought a bunch of stuff, including some cute lanterns we'll hang around our pool area and some frames.
