I'm Gonna Miss This...

...Hanging Out At The Ball Park!
This past week was our spring break, and with Ryan and I both being teachers, we are very fortunate to also be off with the boys. On our first day of our break, we headed to the ball park to take in a spring training game.

In Arizona, they have the Cactus League for major league baseball. This basically is spring training for many of the MLB teams. Not far from us, is the training facility for the Texas Rangers and the Kansas City Royals. This means that these 2 teams are here for spring training and that this is their home field. On the day that we went, Texas was playing the LA Dodgers.
The boys posing with in front of the Texas offices.


We usually get lawn seats when we go, since they are the cheapest and the boys aren't confined to sitting for the entire game! They were tossing around the ball before the game started! One of the ushers came over and gave them a ball that had been hit into the stands during batting practice. They were so excited!

Watching the Dodgers warm up before the opening pitch


I am gonna miss the day when they decide they would rather hang out at the ball park with friends, rather than mom and dad...so for now I will cherish these days and take them out to the ball game whenever we have the chance!
