In March we made our way to Tempe, AZ for a weekend of Spring Training with the Angels! I guess we just couldn't stand waiting until April for the regular season to start. The boys were super excited! Spring Training crowds are smaller, the venue is smaller and the players are much more relaxed. We were able to attend two games! Boy was it nice to have some rock star seating!! For the first game we were right over the Angels dugout and for the second game we were right behind home plate!
We arrived a couple of hours early to our first game with hopes to watch a bit of practice. Not only were we able to do that, but we also were fortunate enough to meet some of the players, coaching staff and media personalities!

The weather was very hot all weekend, so two days in the Arizona sun was plenty for us to handle.
Our quick little weekend getaway was certainly enough to get us excited for the 2009 season to start. The boys' love for baseball continues to grow. We're so happy that they enjoy spending evenings at Angel Stadium, watching a game. It's great family time. You wouldn't believe how much two toddlers could understand about the baseball!!
