Go Twins!

After spending a few days in Iowa visiting family and spending time with my parents; my dad, mom and I headed up to Minneapolis for a Minnesota Twins game.

We had a couple hours to spare upon arriving at the stadium, so we decided to head over to O'Donovan's Irish Pub which is right across the street from Target Field.

We enjoyed a drink and a couple appetizers and then headed to the field to watch the Twins play the Philadelphia Phillies.

It was a perfect night for a game and we had great seats behind home plate.

Although the Phillies scored 6 runs in the first inning, the Twins rallied toward the end of the game, yet still fell short in capturing the lead, losing to the Phillies 8-9. Booo!

My time in the Midwest was great fun and I appreciated spending an early Father's Day with my Dad. He has been one of my biggest fans throughout my life and is often times the first person I turn to when I need help with a decision or have a problem. I am so lucky to have a dad that is supportive and loving, is a great husband and a wonderful grandpa. Thank you Dad for being you. You are the best.

After spending the night in Minneapolis, my parents dropped me off at the airport, where I boarded a plane headed for Denver so I could begin the next leg of my vacation...

Thanks Mom and Dad for a great time in Iowa and Minnesota.
