Baseball in Texas!

Dang, it was hot and muggy! I had booked a weekend getaway for Charlie months and months ago..so we could go see a baseball game in Texas. We want to go to a different ballpark each year. This year was Texas Rangers in Arlington.
Nice but not as nice as Arizona where we like to see the Diamondbacks play!
We were a bit stressed out, as Charlie's mom had to go to the hospital right before we left to get a kidney stone removed, we could not cancel flight and hotel without losing all funds about 1000.00, and then we paid 280.00 for two days worth of baseball tickets...we decided to go and hope that she would be in the hosptial for a few days resting and we would fly back first thing sunday, well, turns out she did not need us, as she drove herself home sunday without even telling us! Mordern medicine is a pretty fascinating thing I guess! She is doing fine resting at home.
Saturday morning we rented a car for the day and drove to downtown Dallas, YUCK! Don't bother. Then we headed off to The StockYards in Fort Worth, now that was more like it! You could walk around and the street is like an old western town, we went on a stagecoach ride, ate bbq at Cooper's, don't bother, yuck again!
Got back to the stadium in time to see Saturdays game, this time we headed to the Cuervo Club, an airconditioned lounge, we dined on chips and salsa and beer and wine, after the sun went down we went to our seats and enjoyed the game. I got to see Napoli play friday and saturday, he did great!
All in all, it was an ok weekend, I wished Charlie could have relaxed more, but maybe next year will be better, we will try San Diego or Seattle!!
READY TO SEE THE GAME!

Oh, you make me smile! Looks like you had a great trip, regardless of stress levels. And the Stock Yards in Denver, stink, as they are actually the stock yards! Glad you got to see your boy play again...glad you're back!

Sounds like a fun weekend.
I'm glad Marge is doing fine.

LUV, MOM.

You should have gone to the stock yards for a great steak 'cause they are scrumptious; we enjoyed the stock yards years ago and we went to a REAL rodeo down there!

Glad you had fun and I'm sure that next year the weather will be better no matter where you go, especially San Diego!

Welcome home, chica.
