Spring Training

One of the perks about living in AZ besides the winter weather is the baseball spring training.  The cactus league has about 15 teams that play at 11 different stadiums around the Phoenix area, with a couple in Tucson.  That means that on any given day in March you can go watch a baseball game.  It is great, the stadiums are small and most of them sell grass tickets which are cheap and a perfect place to bring small kids because that means they can run around and not disturb people!  We went to the Brewers/Cubs game while we had family in from Wisconsin and it was an absolutely perfect day.  The girls had a blast "watching" baseball, running around in the grass, eating hotdogs and snow-cones, and soaking up the sun. I definitely want to try to get in at least one more game before the end of the month and it is just one more thing on the long list of what I will miss about living in Arizona!

Best seat in the house!

I think she was pointing to an airplane.  

Yum, ballpark hotdogs.  No baseball game is complete without one!

The only bad thing is that most of the spring training games start at 1PM which is right about nap time for Olivia.  She laid down for a bit, but never actually feel asleep.  She was out as soon as we were in the car though!
