Day 70: KOA Table Cloth Map with All the Ballparks Route

Since the beginning of July we have been getting KOA Picnic Tablecloths at every KOA because we are VIP members. They are really useful because they have elastic to fit onto the table and avoid the need for tablecloth clips. The really cool part, though is that it is a map of the United States and Canada with all the KOA locations. At every place we have used them Dad has been drawing the route of our trip up to the KOA we are at. Now we are at our final KOA and I thought I should share the final one he will probably do. It shows the whole route we took to get to all 30 ballparks and other things along the way, so it really is just missing the journey home. By the way as of now we have traveled 18,225 miles.

Kj’s Baseball Collection: Boston Red Sox @ Texas Rangers

At the Rangers game I got a baseball that was a souvenir for the particular series we saw. On one side it has the logos of the Texas Rangers and the Boston Red Sox and in between it says vs. Below the logos it says Rangers Ballpark at Arlington. It was because it did say the ballpark name that I did not end up also getting the ballpark souvenir baseball I saw. On another side it has the Texas Rangers T logo on a blue background and on the side opposite that is the Boston Red Sox socks logo on a red background.

Mik’s Mini Bat Collection: Rangers Ballpark at Arlington

I already posted about Mik getting the natural Texas Rangers mini bat at the Rangers game. After the game we were able to go back to the stand outside the park and finally get him the ballpark one that he wanted all along. This one is natural on the bottom and has a brick background look on the top half. On the brick background is an oval image of Rangers Ballpark. Above the image it says Rangers Ballpark and below the image it says at Arlington.

Mik’s Mini Bat Collection: Natural Texas Rangers

Mik had seen a ballpark bat at a stand outside the ballpark and Dad kept trying to find it inside, but everywhere inside was sold out and he just got Mik this natural Texas Rangers one to make sure he got a mini bat here. We would have got it outside before the game, but they were having problems with the cash register and could not process any sales. This Texas Rangers bat is natural in color and says Texas and also has the Texas Rangers circle logo.

Mik’s Food Scrapbook: Rangers Ballpark at Arlington

At the Rangers game Mik tried the funnel cake with powdered sugar. He did not finish it all, but it was not because it was bad. In fact he thought it was very good (by the way he had never had funnel cake before). The only reason he did not finish it was that he got full.
