Twins game

Well we made it to 2 games this year at the new stadium and for that we were happy! The boys got to go with for both of them, which they loved! There were 12 of us all together that went, so it was a lot of fun. My parents, both brothers, girlfriends, Brad's parents and our family!

Grant doing a pose! He was just happy he was tall enough to grab the bat!

Dylan during the game was all ready with his rally hat! It was a beautiful night out as well! Very humid but still nice! We weren't complaining a bit!

I just love these pictures with Mickey. Dylan found Mickey and was over the top excited. I think we ended up with about 15 pictures of him, but I will only post these ones! He kept telling, me take 1 more picture mom! As you can see by his expression, he was quite excited!

After the Twins win! I love how Grant snuck into the picture with me and my mom!

Dylan being Dylan. Here they are with my brother Marc and his girlfriend Amanda! It was their first game and they had a great time! I think we need to buy my brother some Twins gear! hint, hint

Grant was off running so we only got Dylan in this picture with Brad's parents. This was their first game as well and they too had a great time!

Dylan with my mom again being silly!

2010 season is over, but we are hoping to make it to a few more games next year as well! So happy to have outdoor baseball again!

Science Museum

While we were in the cities for the State Fair trip, we decided to hit the Children's Musuem. We hadn't been there in a few years so decided it was time to take a trip back. The kids had a great time checking everything out!

Dylan had more fun hiding in the ant hill farm. One kid however, got lost. The mother was a mess and the child was hiding and wouldn't come out! I sat there and thought to myself, that could easily have been my child. Dylan would sit there and not come out until we found him! thankfully, I was not the mother this year in that position!

The boys had a lot of fun in the Wizard of Oz room! Here they are building the rainbow. Very cool to see them work together to build something! They were pretty proud boys when it was complete!

I wish we had something like this in town that we could visit more often as I think it's great for the kids to be able to do a lot of this hands on stuff. They painted pictures and climbed things and created memories.

State Fair annual trip!

Well we again made our annual trip to the MN state fair. We started this about 3 years ago. We go on a Sunday, hit the state fair, twins game and whatever else we have time for. We usually stay until Wednesday. Seems to be less people going during the week and we don't have to fight too many crowds this way. The boys love that they don't have to wait in long lines for anything! One of their favorites is the Merry Go Round!

Of course we have to make a few runs down the giant slide. Here is Dylan with his Uncle Matt and Grant with me. It was so funny because we just took off about half way down and we were laughing so hard because we felt like we had no control! As you can see, we beat them! hahah!

A few shots of hockey in the Wild shootout!

Dylan finishing one of his 4 corn dogs! as the boys get older we sure notice how much more food we buy! I think next year we will start saving now for just a food fund!

It was very hot again this year, almost 90 degrees out! So at the end of the day, to cool off before heading back to the hotel, Grant wanted to hit the water ride of course! So Brad took him along with Brad's parents down the ride. I offered to stay and watch all personal stuff that they didn't want to get wet. At this point, my mom, brother and Dylan had left for the hotel. Dylan just couldn't take that many hours yet! But Grant could stay all day and night if we let him. He loved this ride. I think next year we will have to take it more than once I'm afraid!
Well another great year at the Great MN get together! We enjoy our mini vacation every year and the boys now have it on their calendars for next year!
