Round Rock Express Game @ Dell Diamond!

I was invited to a Round Rock Express game at the Dell Diamond as part of a group of local bloggers and their families. And it turned out to be quite a treat! They reserved the pool area (did you even know they had a pool area?) You can reserve one of their party sections that includes food, a playground, picnic tables, a pool, hot tub and of course and awesome view of the field. Check out our view:

We had a great time! They had yummy hot dogs, chips and burgers as well as fountain drinks and my husbands favorite FREE BEER!!  ;-) The kids got to swim for a bit and relax at the hot tub. I would recommend this space to anyone looking to make their next event extra special!!!
