Lunch and a Baseball Game
We had a fun family day planned yesterday! We headed to Red Robin to celebrate Michael's birthday (a couple of days early-his birthday is actually tomorrow). He had never eaten there and I knew he would love and he did!
This was my lunch-so huge and so delicious!!!!
Next we were off to see the New Britain Rock cats, the Double AA affiliate for the Minnesota Twins. We were supposed to go back in June with the Little League but it got rained out.
Tucker and Michael show off the program
the mascots arrived by bus...
Tucker got a "claw" and we had a good time with it!
the players take the field
we were under a severe thunderstorm watch and the clouds came in along with the thunder and the rain. The game never stopped and the place cleared out so we had the section to ourselves!
We also checked out the "fan zone" where they had a bouncy obstacle course and baseball game to play!
The Rock cats ended up winning 8-4! It was a great day and despite it being an hour away, I think we may go back there next year for a few games despite having a local affiliate 20 mins away! It was a really nice stadium and we had a blast!
