These pictures are a little late in being posted... we enjoyed the Diamondbacks/Pirates game a few weeks ago with the Thompson side of the family. My dad grew up as a Pirates fan, and became a DBacks fan due to living in AZ all these years. He wore shirts for both teams to the game :) We decided to try riding the lightrail to the game, so jumped on at the first stop on the East side, and jumped out a block from the stadium. Eli enjoys riding the "train" (this was his third experience), and it was nice to avoid the traffic, parking, paying for parking, etc. We would definitely take the lightrail again to any downtown Phoenix sporting events. The last time Eli went to a game he was barely two, so he actually sat and watched "some" of this one. You can see from the pic above, he thoroughly enjoyed his hot dog! We traded off taking him on walks to the various play areas around Chase field - he even gave Baxter a high five! Although the DBacks have had better seasons, they did win this game 7-0. Go DBacks!
