So, we started the day with a leisurely breakfast, then headed northwest to Surprise for the last game of spring training, Royals vs the Indians. I must say that I very much enjoyed the atmosphere at the ballpark. It was relaxed, friendly, easy, and the prices weren't bad either.

|All three amigos looking at the camera. It's a miracle!|
|Don't worry, Max. The players will be out soon.|
|There they are! Butler, Frenchie, Gordon. All of 'em except Hos came to play!|
|More like it, kid!|
|Soaking it up on the lawn, bag of Trader Joe's provisions near by.|
|And now, we have a baseball fan! Alex Gordon hit a HR on the first pitch of his first AB of the first inning. Nice start!|
|Mandatory dog at the ball park.|
|And some banilla ice cream out of a plastic ball cap to top off the afternoon!|
Luckily, Max is oblivious to the basketball game. :-)
Later in the evening, my Aunt Kathy through a cocktail reception for the wedding guests at the Arizona Biltmore. It was a lovely night. Beka and Steven watched Max while we reconnected with family and made new friends.
|Play-doh creations while the folks are away!|
