Spring Training Baseball

My dad and brothers came out for some spring training baseball. We hit 3 parks in 3 days. We saw the Houston Astros play the LA Dodgers in Kissimmee, FL and Burton was given a ball. Then we went to Vero Beach, FL for the LA Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals and Burton was given another ball. Last we went to Wide World of Sports at Disney to see the Atlanta Braves play the Tampa Rays, Burton got to go on the field after the game and run (get pushed in his wheelchair) around the bases and was given a bat. I think everyone enjoyed themselves. It's safe to say Burton like baseball or maybe all the snacks he gets at the games !!!

It took Burton only a week to figure out how to use his wheelchair. Now when we're pushing we have to keep telling him put your hands in because he wants to do it and if you stop he'll start pushing because he wants to go.
