Take me out to the ball game…

I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I was at work but was able to join up with my DH’s family afterward for swimming and McD’s. It was pretty fun. This was after I was greeted at the door with 2 big bouquets of flowers, hugs and kisses! I feel so loved.
Rewind to Friday. Every year Dairy Queen sponsers "Cap Night at the Dome". This means the first 20,000 fans that come to see the MN Twins play baseball at the Metrodome receive a free hat with the Twins’ logo on it (and DQ of course). Well, this last Friday was that night and we had sooooooooo much fun. We’ve gone every year as a family for the last 6 or 7 years. We’ve kind of made it a family tradition of sorts. We all like baseball, we like the Twins and we like being with eachother. It’s a perfect match! Besides, who could pass up a free hat? This year we played the Chicago White Sox and we CREAMED them 10-1! It was such a good game and we had such a good time. The atmosphere gets so exciting! (We’re playing a 4 game series w/the Sox-whom we also beat on Saturday! How did they win the World Series last year?)
Saturday I was at work from 8am-6pm! Long day. We then had to pick Love up from her dad’s because he was having car trouble-nothing new. He lives w/his parents about an hours drive from here near Hudson, WI so it was a long drive. We made the most of it by stopping in St.Paul on the way home (you have to drive throught the cities to get to their house) at one of our favorite ristorante Italiano-Cosetta’s! Mmmmmm. Authentic Italian food in a really cool turn of the century building complete with high ceilings and creaky floors! They have the biggest slices of homemade pizza. Let’s just say it’s bigger than the paper plate they put it on and they hand toss it right in front of you! We always have a fun time when we go there and I was really in the mood for Coke in a glass bottle!
We got home and crashed. It was a well earned bedtime that’s for sure! Now it’s Monday and I work tonight at 3pm. We usually are done w/school around then anyways so that’s good. I just miss spending time w/my family that isn’t already set aside for something else. You know, just being in eachother’s company.
Well, have a good day. I’ll try to visit sites and leave comments later this week.
