How we spent our last weekend of summer...

Camelback Mountain-our weekend view 
I couldn't think of a better way to end our summer than spending Labor Day Weekend in Scottsdale with awesome friends at an awesome resort, seeing my man in his uni and a little Diamondbacks baseball!

In the suite pre-uniform
The Diamondbacks held their 2nd annual alumni game last Saturday night and it was a privilege for us to make the trip and watch Mark put  #11 on again. We watched the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in walk off fashion. The thirty thousand  fans that stuck around then watched the alumni for three innings-yes that's all these old guys can play anymore. I'm just thankful that Mark escaped unscathed. He had two put outs in left field...the last one made me a little nervous when he tried to double Jr. Spivey off of at first base. He then hit a home run if he would have been playing in a grain silo"popped up to centerfield!" Mark's team lost 3-0 but he was a winner in our book.

If you look close Jack is in neon next to Mark!
At the plate...
Needless to say I'm pretty sure Jack was the most excited about this trip. What little boy's dream isn't to play catch with his dad on a big league field, hang out in the clubhouse eating an endless amount of sunflower seeds and raiding the bubble gum container. 

Aahhh It was nice to be back in Arizona, at Chase Field taking it all in again as life as we once knew it.  
This was the best we could mouths full of bubble gum!

Hanging with friends at the game!

Playing in the mountains!
