Now before y'all get any wild ideas of me jumping teams have no fear that I am a loyal and true St. Louis Cardinals fan. However, with the awesome season that the Kansas City Royals had last year and supporting another great team in Missouri I wanted to check out their Spring Training. When the Cardinals aren't playing the Royals I am happy to cheer for them plus this was something I have never done before and wanted to cross it off my bucket list!
and you have to get the "Chocolate Bag" for dessert! YUM!
After visiting with Stephanie and Justin it was time to get to the hotel so we could get our walking in. I like to think I am pretty good at planning trips and somehow I slipped. I managed to rent a smoking room instead of a non-smoking room for the evening. Oh my goodness what a huge mistake and there wasn't any other rooms available. Luckily I carry room freshener with me just in case.... well after I blasted the heck out of the room it now smelled like someone crapped a lilac bush. We sucked it up and boy were we glad to get out of that place! (Don't think I didn't look at the rest of our trip to make sure I didn't make another mistake - Lesson learned!)
The next morning we flew out to Phoenix. We had some time to kill so our very first stop was the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall! (I do love junkin'!)
After a long day we were ready to get our 1 mile walk in and head to bed!
We did it! Great job Momma!
Now let's go get cleaned up and go check out another town!
First stop was to pick up Pops a t-shirt!
Check out photos from this awesome event!
Kuddos to everyone involved in this event! It looked so fun and it would have been awesome to see!
(They have several shows a night and they are all different)
We headed back to Phoenix to get some much needed rest!
Remember I told you it was really early and my peepers weren't fully open because I totally drove down the on ramp to the highway.... that's all fine and dandy when it's not the off ramp for the traffic on the highway! Oh my goodness! Luckily there wasn't much traffic and to my defense the signs were not totally clear on where you enter. We finally made it to the airport, returned our ride and decided to get some breakfast - something I hardly ever eat.
I ordered Creme Brule french toast with fresh fruit and french ham... I love me some country ham and had to ask what the heck was french ham. It was really good and basically like deli ham that was fried in butter! Yum!
Arizona, What a blast and don't worry sugars 'cause I'll be back! Loved your state, loved your laid back attitude and your hospitality. No wonder people come here to retire! (The weather was absolutely perfect!) Until next time....
