Scott and I visited Houston, Texas last week for Scott's birthday :)

Scott is a baseball fanatic, with the goal of visiting every Major League ballpark (Houston was #17), so his birthday present this year was using all our miles to go to Houston :) AND while our team lost, it was a no hitter game!
