Honeymoon-Part 1 (Texas Rangers Game)

I first posted this blog in August of 2011 on Gary and I's couple blog. I have recently decided to pursue this blog more, so I am moving some posts over that I are important to me. 

Before we got married, I knew that we weren't going to take a typical honeymoon. My husband works for a minor league baseball team. We also got married in baseball season. We both thought it would be fun to go on a few weekend trips instead of a week getaway. Gary and I decided that our first trip would be to Arlington Park in June 2011, where the Texas Rangers play. This was our first time to this stadium. We knew from the beginning it was going to be a fun, new experience for us. 

The Rangers were playing the New York Mets. Gary found our tickets on Stubhub and we got tickets in the Lexus Lounge. We both didn't know what to expect, but excited none the less. This was also our first trip since being back from the wedding. 

We got there about a few hours before the gates open. We drove around and saw where the Dallas Cowboys play. I can't believe how big it was. I got to go when I was interning for the Cotton Bowl in 2009. We went to Wal-Mart before finding a parking spot to get some tailgating food. A tip of advice to anyone who goes to Texas and forgets adult drinks. You can't buy alcohol before noon. So we had to wait about 5 minutes.   

We found a parking lot close to the ballpark. We tailgated for a little bit before the gates open. We got Subway sandwiches and beer. Just like old time at Royals games. We played catch for a little bit before going in the ballpark.

The game didn't start off great for Gary. As soon as we walked in, Gary got frisked by security. I thought it was kinda funny, because I have to carry a big bag and they didn't say anything to me. 

Arlington Park "Home of the Texas Rangers"
Inside the ballpark was absolutely amazing but hot. Gary and I watched an inning from our seats outdoors before finding bar inside the stadium. As soon I we got in the bar we "walked" fast to find seats right by the glass. I'm lucky I was small because I wiggled past a few people to get the final 2 seats by the glass. We still had a great view of the game to keep score of the game. 

We both had few adult drinks. I got frozen margaritas in fun Rangers cups. I wish I could find those, but I bet I gave them to my mom. She loves the giant plastic cups from different stadiums.

View from our seats
Not only did we have great time watching the game, we had a great time shopping in all the gift shops. We also got some amazing deals at the ballpark. Gary found a Texas Rangers fleece pullover WITH the World Series patch on the arm. The moment he saw eyes on pullover he was said, "We are getting this." I was like, "Um, ok. That's fine." Come to find out that pullover is normally $100 and we got it for $25. I got a pink mini bat that I wanted. The best thing was that we could get in engraved. So I decided on with our name and our anniversary.
