Fourth of July Weekend at Target Field [PICS]
The Fourth of July weekend at Target Field was packed full of first time experiences.
Brittany had the first new experience of the day when we boarded the train in Big Lake. She had never been on a train to go anywhere, and she was pretty excited… she became even more excited one the conductors with “their cute little hats” came around and took a picture with Brittany. The best part was when one of the conductors told her, “make sure NOT to wear your seat belt, just in case we the train derails and we end up in the water… you want to be able to get out quick”… and it continued with more jokes such as, “make sure you don’t have that baby on the train, that would be a mess”.
Donnie and Jamie came to the game with us and this was their first time at Target Field. They thought the same thing as you and I did when we first saw the inside of Target Field… amazing.
We had great seats, 13-rows up in section 103… great seats for a BASEBALL game, not for a pregnant lady. It was very sunny and around 88-degrees. It was warm. Brittany was sucking down water after water, enjoying the strawberry chill cup before it became too much. We went up to the food stands to find some shade and we found a massive fan that we stood in front of for a good 15-20 minutes. Donnie and Jamie came up too and instead of going back down to our GREAT seats, we stood up top so we could be close to the fan and water.
While we were up there, Donnie and Jamie got asked to play a game for a free night stay at Treasure Island… another first. They were up on the big screen trying to guess, from a list of seven, which Twins players wore the number two during their time in Minnesota. They didn’t win, even with me trying to belt out answers to them as I looked it up on my phone… it was sunny and hard to see the screen.
After that, we left the game early for a cooler place… for the pregnant lady. On the way out, we had to stop and take pictures in the glove and with Kirby Puckett before we all experienced our first time at Cowboy Jack’s (downtown Minneapolis) for drinks, food and the rest of the game, which the Twins WON 2-1 in 11-innings.
It was a great Saturday… at least until we got back to Big Lake and there was no bus waiting for us, like there was suppose to be, so we had to sit at the train station for a little over an hour waiting for the bus back to St. Cloud. Not cool.
