Let's-Go-Rangers

(Clap... Clap... Clap Clap Clap)
Ally Loves the Let's go Ranger's "song" :-)

We here at the Wood home are big time Texas Ranger Baseball fans. Ally and Ryan love to watch the Rangers play on TV at night and I love that it's appropriate TV!! So a natural gift for Mark's bday was Ranger Tickets. While we were in Arlington we also went to a game and it just so happened to be Michael Young jersey night-SCORE!
Oh I can't help but flashback!!!
Ryan has always loved Ranger baseball...
My 2 year old could smack the ball like you've never seen. He knew all the players and their positions way back then!!

He had a baseball nursery, and a baseball Super R cape.

And he was Michael Young (#10 Ranger) when he was three years old for Halloween. (Man these pictures make me realize just how old he is and, he used to smile for the camera...what happened??!!)

Ryan's first live Ranger game at 4 years old

Yeah, baseball blood runs deep in our family. Mark played in college (look at how cute he is!),

And then he coached High School baseball for a year and then worked for the Texas Rangers while we were engaged! We both love going to the games and we're so thankful that Ryan and Ally both love it as well.

My cutie Ranger fans

Headed to the kids area in Center Field. This was Ryan's favorite part. They really have a cool area for kids to play, and we had fantastic weather- 74 and sunny!


Ally had a blast too..

I am so thankful for days like these. We had a really great time!!! If you're looking for a fun family night, The Ballpark at Arlington is the place to go!
Let's Go Rangers!

Once Derek asked me how many current Rangers players I knew and could name none, I knew I was an official Astros fan. Now that I am a convert, I will always have a heart for the old Rangers I grew up with (and had a crush for - Bobby Witt was such a cutie). Love this family outting - love me some fellow baseball lovers!
