Last month was the boyfriend's birthday. We haven't been dating all that long and I wasn't quite sure what to get him. Our Minnesota Twins recently built a new stadium up in the Twin Cities, so I thought why not take him to a game? He absolutely loves baseball, so this was the perfect gift.
We had a blast! I haven't been to a baseball game in atleast 10 years and we had incredible seats. I bought them on Craigslist from someone who is a season ticket holder for an insanely good price.
The stadium is gorgeous. The game started at 7:10, so we got to watch the game go from day to night. It was so much fun because I grew up in Milwaukee, where the Brewers used to have an outdoor stadium. I remember many nights as a kid watching ball games, the bugs, the wind, the sun--it was all part of the experience. So, the game took me back to my childhood a little bit.
The Twins won, 2-1 which was great too. MN fans are so awesome to watch--they just really get into the game. I love it. (Here we are in our matching Twins gear. Dorky? Yes. But I love it. :)
The boyfriend said he had a great time and an awesome birthday, and so did I. Overall, an unforgettable day. I can't wait to go back again!
