Welcome everyone to The Adventure’s First! The hot and humid days of summer are finally breaking and my favorite time of year is edging onto the horizon. I just love autumn, the weather is just perfect for adventuring, I never want to stay inside because it’s just too hot out there, and with a full month of days over 90 this summer I really have spent way too many hours hiding out in air conditioning.
Autumn also means our anniversary! And with it our annual anniversary-cation. For our first anniversary we went to St. Petersburg, FL, the ocean is just about my most favorite thing ever. This year we’re going to San Francisco, CA, mostly so my lovely husband can check 2 more baseball stadiums off of his list.
It’s a very special mostly sports adventure we are going on this year though. As I implied we’re on a mission to see every baseball stadium in the country, Will’s most favorite thing in the world is baseball.
The list so far:
- The Oakland A’s vs. the Baltimore Orioles (Will’s favorite team!)
- The San Francisco Giants vs. the San Diego Padres (a rematch of a game we saw in San Diego earlier in the summer)
- The San Francisco 49ers (Will’s favorite football team) vs. the Detroit Lions, for the 49ers home opener
- Everything touristy, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, trolly car ride, china town, fisherman’s warf, union square, and of course eating!
I’m not a huge football fan, mostly because with the NFL and College football it’s on almost every day of the week through out football season. This will be my second NFL game in person, the first was last summer in Tampa, also the home opener. As exciting as it was to be in the crowd losing their minds, it was over 100 degrees and just really too hot for me to pay any attention to anything except how how I was. I am extremely excited to get to see the 49er’s home opener though, it’s hard not to get excited about anything that Will is excited about. He just get’s so ampped.
Enough about future adventures, today’s adventure is starting this blog. I’m on day one, but I have big big plans, and I hope I’ve at least peaked your interest enough to come along and join me in my mostly daily adventures.
p.s. in case you’re curious to the title of this blog, it’s taken from my favorite book of all time.
