Suns open practice








Bryce decided to buy Suns season tickets this year as an investment (meaning we'll sell most of them and hopefully make a good profit). Last night on our way home from our "vacation" we stopped in Phoenix for the Suns open practice. Because we are season ticket holders, we got reserved seating on the floor for the practice....we were in the second row from the court. The kids loved seeing the Suns gorilla and he came by to give them fives. There was such fun entertainment, Logan was going crazy.












As you can see, we got a real close-up look at the players in person....we have to admit we were a little star-struck as we are major Suns fans. Bryce was in heaven. We sort of felt out of our league because we don't really fit the season ticket holders mold. There was a meeting before the practice on being a season ticket holder and there were all sorts of fancy looking people there. I had to go to the bathroom and a worker from that meeting escorted me there personally to make sure I could find it ok (I just expected him to point the way and tell me good luck). It felt funny being treated so well. It was a fun night, and hopefully something we'll do as a family tradition each year. Go Suns!!!

That looks like so much fun! Eliott is totally jealous! Maybe one day we can be as cool as you guys and have season tickets too!! (by the way you look so pretty in that picture!)

So do you really think you'll sell those season tickets? Or are you going to enjoy them yourself? I think that's totally cool. I asked Jeff, just last night, if he thought we'd ever go to a Rockets game, since we're here. He said it would be outrageously expensive if we took all four kids, but maybe 15 dollars each in the nose bleeds for the two of us. So maybe I can take him on a date and leave the kids behind. :) I think that's great you can enjoy the Suns! They're awesome!

Just a clarification: those seats in the pictures were for the Suns open practice ONLY. There's no way we'd be able to afford those for the season....we don't have enough in our life savings for those seats. :) Our season tickets are for seats in the nose bleed section....we can dream though. :)
