New baseball field for the college and friends visit

I volunteer for a Christian college here in Phoenix now named Arizona Christian University. We used to park our RV on the campus property along with other volunteers. Here is a picture of our rig with some other RVers that were also volutnerring on the campus a few years ago. There were a lot of this year.

Last year the college made some new plans for that area and asked the volunteers to move off campus.

There was also a cactus garden on one end of the area. You may remember I wrote about moving these cacti last spring to another are of the campus. Here is what it looked like before.

Now all of that is gone except the palm tree and a large mesquite bush. And the college built a beautiful baseball field where we used to park. It was constructed in a few short months and just finished last week. The first game was a celebration and much fun! Everyone was in a festive spirit!

Here are some shots of the new field with a game in progress.

GOOD FRIENDS

We had some good friends who also happen to be supporters in town and they love baseball and so we all got to go to the first game. That was very special.

Mike and Daylene and Daylene’s mom Edna have come to see us a few times. We always enjoy them and we laugh so much together. This time was no different. We seem to find the simplest things funny!

They travel in their RV with 4 Shih Tzus. Here three of them are waiting for their evening treat. They sure are cute and we enjoy them as well as their family does.

I do hope you having a good winter. It feels funny to talk of baseball in February, right? Well many professional teams come here for spring training. So if you come here for to see one their games come and see us too. It is nice to have the sunshine.
