Take Me Out to the Ball Game...

We had tickets to go to a Minnesota Twins game.
I'm not sure who's the bigger fan...Hubby, or our Amy.

While the rest of us like the Twins...my Hubby and Amy know everything about them...their stats, their height and weight, where they went to high school, and the sports they played while in high school...
Breakfast...the most important meal of the day...
We were up and out early, as game time was 1:10...
We stayed out by the Mall of America and rode the lightrail downtown.
Tuesday's Tip of the Day here...
If you go to a Twins game, ride the lightrail downtown.
Then you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to park your vehicle.
And you all can have an 'adult beverage' at the game and not worry about who is going to drive back to the hotel.
The new Target Field...Wow...
And it was all decked out for Independence Day.
Check out this display of baseball caps.
Tuesday's Tip of the Day II
Always have your Sharpie handy in your purse...
...then there is no excuse for your favorite athletes to not sign your jersey.
Yes, that's Amy gathering signatures.
She was able to get three during their warm-up.
Meanwhile, Jake was receiving Birthday wishes from his family.

Hubby had scored 6 seats in...the...front...row...
Did you see us during the ESPN game highlights?!
Yes, that was us when that homerun ball bounced off the wall!!
There's no better way to spend Independence Day
than at a Baseball Game.

Now...it was not only Jake's birthday, but it was...
Jake's 21st birthday.

In keeping with the 'family friendly' theme of my blog...
And to Jake's mom, Becky, if you are reading this...
Well, to all mothers, actually...
You would be so proud of our young adults.
They are well behaved...
They are mature and responsible...
They make good choices...
Cheers!



Take care, everyone,
~Natalie
