So I finished up with MBA classes a week ago, and I started my first rotation on Monday. (that'll be a separate post). Eric wanted to go on a baseball trip before rotations started so we could have a weekend just the two of us before the madness began.
With Minneapolis only being a 6 1/2 hr drive, we decided lets go for the weekend. Eric took off work on Friday, so we got on the road at 6 am and drove back Sunday afternoon. Since our wedding reception was at a Marriott, we had enough points to get a free hotel room for the weekend.
Other than my horrible sinus infection, we had a great time exploring a new ballpark. This was the first season at Target Field for the Twins. The stadium was really nice, not our favorite though. We decided we don't want to live in Minneapolis. Here are some pictures from the fun weekend.
These things were all over downtown with different pictures all on them.
We went here for dinner one night. It was a British pub with very heavy food. Eric loved it, me not so much. It was just ok.
You can't go to Minneapolis without going to Mall of America. We didn't do any shopping but walked around the entire mall. We were there for about 3 1/2 hrs.
The crazy amusement park INSIDE the mall.
Those dinosaurs are made out of legos. This entire area was built with legos. Every little boy's dream, including Eric's :)
This ballpark was beautiful. It was a very modern park with stone and glass everywhere.
Our current baseball count includes Ballpark in Arlington, Kaufman Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Yankee Stadium, Busch Stadium, Wrigley Field, and now Target Field.
