Our First Twins Game!!!!

Neil got two tickets for the Twins and we decided to bring the kids. It turned out to be quite an adventure. We decided to show up a little late to give the kids time for naps and avoid the rush into the metrodome. What we didn't account for was all the road blocks we'd encounter trying to get to the game. We live about 3miles from the bridge collapse and it seemed yesterday virtually every major road or highway on ramp was closed for construction to accomidate the 35W detour onto HWY 280.

What should have taken us 15-20 min to get to the Metrodome ended up taking us about an hour. We showed up and it starts to downpour. I mean really, really hard. Neil takes Evelyn, I strap Wyatt into the Bjorn and throw a blanket over our heads and we book it to the nearest gate. We got soaking wet!! It was the 6th inning and we enjoyed the game and left at the bottom of the 8th to avoid the rush out. No major mishaps on the way home, but I can say that was the shortest Twins Game I've ever been too. At least they won!
