A Beautiful Day
Back in May when tickets went on sale for games at the Twins new ballpark, I knew I wanted to take the boys for their birthdays in September. It's a good thing I was thinking ahead. Tickets for the whole season have been sold out for a long time.
We had a wonderful day yesterday. It started with Matthew's birthday breakfast at Cobblestone Cafe. He is such a sweet person to be with one-on-one. Then later in the morning, we headed downtown, parked for free about 8 blocks from the stadium and got there early enough to find our seats and talk with the usher. (What a job! He looked about 65 or 70. He works at 60 of the 81 home games.) Our seats were great, first row of the upper deck. They also came with a hot dog and pop. Not bad for $22 a piece. It was a pretty slow game until the Twins went on a tear in the 6th and 7th inning and scored 5 runs. Twins won 5-1. The stadium was really nice and it was great to be outside, although a little cool yesterday. All in all, a wonderful time was had by all of the Gammons boys.
