Weekend in Minneapolis

Last weekend when Kyle got off work on Saturday we jetted outta Dodge and headed north to the Twin Cities with our friends Mark and Kathy. This was to celebrate our anniversary! We just delayed the celebration for a while ‘cause this was the only weekend that worked for both of us!
When we were just getting into the Cities the guys thought maybe we could catch the 7 o’clock Twins game rather than waiting until the 1PM game the next day ‘cause we were going to scalp our tickets no matter which game we went to. So we quick check into our hotel, park the car, switch into our Twins clothes, and grab a cab to the MetroDome. We were almost there and the cabbie says “Where to at the MetroDome"?” (he was thinking he was taking us to our parked car!) and we’re like ….well the main entrance probably. Kinda a silly question we thought….but then we started to see all these Twins fans walking AWAY from the Dome. And the cabbie, he says “Well the game’s already over!” OMG!!! The guys swore it was at 7PM, but it was obviously earlier! We had quite a good little laugh!!
So since we had the rest of the night to we decided to walk around downtown, see the sights, and find somewhere to eat supper.

Kathy said she always wanted to take a picture with Mary Tyler Moore….and now she has one!! :)
We ended up at the Hard Rock Cafe for supper!DSC04218 
I didn’t know my hubby liked jalapeƱos!!!

Can you see Kyle there behind the steam from Mark’s fajitas?!?!DSC04226
Kyle and Kathy both got lil flags on their sandwiches and were pretty proud of them!! :)

  So we stayed NEXT DOOR to the GAP and guess what?!?!?!? I didn’t even get to go there. :( Kyle says good thing ‘cause we saved $$!!DSC04297 
We stayed at “The Marquette”….very nice! Kyle liked the giant flat screens in the room! I liked the glassed in shower! DSC04284
the hotel lobby…kinda cool!DSC04296

The next morning we weren’t sure where to eat breakfast…not a lot of options downtown! We ended up walking just a few blocks down from our hotel to the “Keys Cafe” and it was GREAT!! But we did catch a few pictures on the way! :)DSC04268

Kyle got hit by a bus on the walk back from breakfast….j/k LOL!!!DSC04281      
 Reflections!!! check out the bus in the background…"go greener”!!DSC04314 

After breakfast we headed down to the Dome to find our tickets. And we had great luck! Got ones on the 3rd base line, only 14 rows up for $25…not bad!!

Look at this GIANT tub of bunny tracks ice cream!!! Ok well it really wasn’t filled with ice cream, but Kyle wishes it was, that is his FAVORITE kind!! It was a blow up thing that someone from the crowd got to throw a ball in and if they made it they got a year’s worth of ice cream! Too bad we weren’t picked to do that!!DSC04340 
I don’t think this umpire was even watching the game. He was too busy eating his sun flower seeds. Look at the mess around him!DSC04341 
Our last game in the Dome! Can’t wait to go to the new ball park next year…when it’s warm anyway! ;)DSC04343
Thanks for a great weekend Mark & Kathy…you’re too good to us!!
