Our whole family went to Phoenix for Spring Training. We stayed in Scottsdale at the Westin Kierland hotel. The hotel has an amazing pool area with lazy river, slides and a surfing thing. While we were there, the weather was cool, so the pools were pretty cold. We still got in some. At night, they had smores and a guy played a bagpipe at sunset.
On Saturday we went to Suprise to the Rangers Spring Training facility. We watched practice and the kids ran around and got autographs. After practice, our cousin Blake took us back to the clubhouse and gave us hats and shirts. He also got us tickets to the game. We were sitting close behind home plate with the players families. The kids got autographs from Lance Berkman and Nolan Ryan.
The next day, we hung out at the hotel and then went to the Colorado Rockies training facility for a while. Before our ride home, Natalie was invited into the cockpit to sit in the pilot seat.
