Golf...Mini and Disc

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

After some free chicken nuggets at Chick-Fil-A, we headed to Centennial Lakes to play mini golf. Eric kicked my butt by 10 strokes. I had a rough night hitting the hole. :(  It was also a slow night as we had some big groups in front of us. And then we had the make-out couple.  I'm not talking some teenagers...these two were easily in the 50s. The guy was in a fancy shirt, tie and wing tipped shoes. The woman was less formal but they were very annoying. At one point, during one of their many make out sessions he asked, "are you waiting for us?" Well duh, we are standing in the tee box looking at you with a scorn on our face.  I said "Yes we are!" Eric said it was a bit snotty but seriously, get out of the way!

Our next activity was disc golf. We were running out of sunlight so we only managed to get in 11 holes. But honestly that was all I could handle tonight. We haven't played at all this year yet so my fingers were getting the start of blisters. I need to break my fingers in. Haha!


We didn't really keep score but we were much closer at this than the mini golf.

We took advantage of the beautiful summer night. It was a fun evening!

Food, Cards and Dylan

Sunday, July 28, 2019

I had a fun filled weekend in Wisconsin. Nancy came up from Texas for the weekend. She and Dylan came to my mom's for the weekend. Danielle, Bradley and Blake came over for the weekend too. We had a great time eating good food, lots of cards and quality time with Dylan.


Twins beat the Yankees...and the A's

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

What a fantastic couple of days for us Twins fans!!  Eric's friend, Kevin and his family were in town from South Dakota this weekend. One of the kids, Adam, loves the Oakland A's (not sure why); Isaac loves the Yankees. So does Kevin. Jana is the only sensible Twins fan in the family. Ha!

The Twins schedule worked out very nicely as the A's and Yankees play back-to-back series at Target Field.

Game One - Twins vs. A's
The first game was Sunday versus the Oakland A's. The game was very exciting but very long. It was well over 4 hours. During the 8th inning we stood in line with Isaac to run the bases. It is a Sunday tradition at Target Field. Going into the 9th inning the Twins were down by two runs. Unfortunately we were down in the depths of Target field so we couldn't see the action. I'm not exactly sure how we pulled it off, but Max Kepler had the walk off base hit to win it. It was so exciting!  Poor Adam. LOL!

Final score: 7-6

Game Two - Twins vs. Yankees
Oh you damn Yankees. How I hate thee! When it comes to the Yankees, I just assume we are going to lose. Our record against them for the last 17 years is like 35 and 90. It is awful. The first inning started out like another Yankee slaughtering. I mean Perez walked the first two batters.  But we witness some history...A TRIPLE PLAY! Yep. The Twins pulled off a triple play to end the inning. It happened so fast that I didn't see the first out and was confused when the Twins were running off the field. It took a while to process what I just saw. It was pretty amazing.

Bottom of the first the Twins had back-to-back home runs. This game was one of the most exciting games I've ever been too. These Twins don't look anything like the old Twins I'm used to. I have to admit that I kept thinking when are we going to blow it...We never did. Another random play was the Yankee's catcher was called for interference with the bases loaded which means we scored! So bizarre!  In total there were 8 home runs hit in the game, 5 of those were by the Twins.

Final score: 8-6

This Twins team is so much fun to watch. This team is special!

Beautiful Sunset in Milwaukee

Milwaukee Weekend

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Kim's nephew, Dylan, was diagnosed with rhabodomyosarcoma back in January. This cancer is usually found in children so it is very rare for adults to be diagnosed. He has had several rounds of chemo and radiation but unfortunately nothing has seemed to stop the spread. Last weekend my family traveled to Milwaukee for the annual RACE TO CURE SARCOMA MILWAUKEE 2019 SUPPORTING SARCOMA FOUNDATION OF AMERICA

Dylan had a great team supporting him.  

I was very proud that I was able raise to $790!  The race was Saturday and it was so hot.
