The main reason we traveled to Phoenix last month was to have a “Royal” good time!  Randy is a huge Royals fan and this is the second time we have gone to spring training.  The Royals and the Texas Rangers share a lovely little stadium and it is such a good way to catch a game or two.  We went to a day game and a night game.  The Royals won one game and lost the other.  This cute stadium has a large food court but I only ate peanuts, two bites of James’ hotdog and an Elephant Ear!  The Elephant Ear is a cross between fry bread and sopapillas, only much larger and covered in cinnamon sugar.  I was in food heaven.

This is the second year for Randy and I to go to spring training but it was James’ first time.  He likes to always know exactly where he is, so we took a photo:

Here is a link to last year’s trip in case you want to see old photos!

I took a few more photos of James, because I like him:

James!

James!

And Randy and I got in some photo action also.  They have a volunteer to take the pictures.  Yep, they have thought of everything.

We also were able to watch the Texas Rangers’ players warm up.

Not much more to say about the games but here are the rest of the photos:

Well, not sure if we will go next year, but let us know if you want to go with us anyway!  Such a fun time and so close to the team!  I might go back just for the Elephant Ears!

Next up is the second annual trip to Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf!  Stay tuned.

Where should we go next?
