soccer/twins weekend

A couple of weekends ago Carter had a soccer tournament down in Lakeville and since there was no baseball that weekend, we all got to go. (Except for Katelyn who had to stay home to work.) The weather was pretty awful and we spent Saturday afternoon watching Carter and his team play in the pouring rain. Miserable. And since we were staying in a hotel, the best way to dry out his soccer equipment was to lay it over the heater in the hotel room and turn it on full blast. Ewwwww. Do you know that soccer equipment smells WORSE than hockey equipment? I have never ever smelled such a rancid, putrid smell than our hotel room that night. Anyway... we had purchased tickets for the Twins game on Saturday night and though we were pretty bummed about the weather, we braved the rain hoping it would stop before game time. We took the light rail from the MOA all the way down to Target Field.

Our first stop once we got there was of course Hrbek's. It is Kent Hrbek's restaurant/bar. Dad had a hamburger and we all shared the biggest onion rings we've ever seen.
It was WeFest "Hat Night" at Target Field... so we all got free hats!My boyfriend Joe Mauer had just returned to the line-up the night before so we were excited to watch him play. Here his is before the game... was warming up pitchers in the bull pen and decided to give us a little look. (It could have had something to do with all of the obnioxous fans yelling "JOE!, JOE!"... but maybe he just wanted to say hi to me.)

Our friends the Greene's went with us too! The rain stopped by the second inning and it ended up being a really perfect night!
