We are on vacation for the next week. Tomorrow we leave for 7 days at a resort near Nisswa. We will be with our usual summer vaca crew (Dad, Chris, Brett and Rachel) including our one new addition - Baby Charlie.
Today we kicked off the party with a trip to a Twins game!
This was Marly and my first trip ever to Target Field.
We took the Northstar Commuter rail from the Fridley stop a few miles from our house.
Mark got us awesome seats close to field, so the kids got to see the players warm up.
Here is a true confession - I didn't understand how to read the score.
I have ZERO interest in baseball, but makes for great family time.
And, I can't think of a better reason to start drinking beer at noon!
Dean enjoyed every minute of the game.
Marly was bored by the fifth inning, so the two of us took a walk or two exploring the stadium.
As a diversion, the kids each took a turn as photographer.

It was a little hot by the end, but not too bad compared to most afternoons this summer.
The Twins lost, but we had fun.
The perfect start to what we know is going to be a FUN vacation.
