Summer Vacation of Baseball
Ahhhh -- summer vacation. I love summer vacation. Especially when it includes a roadtrip of baseball and ballparks.
We started out in Chicago on Labor Day watching a game at Wrigley Field.
After packing up the rental car we headed north to Milwaukee where we took in the sights, sounds and flavors of both the Miller Brewery, Harley Davidson factory and museum followed by a Brewers game at Miller Field.
Driving up to Minneapolis proved to be fruitless. Apparently I didn't read the schedule correctly as the Twins were on a road trip. Oh well. We caught up with friends from our past and checked out the Metrodome anyway. In addition, we took in the Mall of America and were almost overwhelmed with shopping.
After a quick visit to my brother's house in Grand Mound, Iowa -- we caught the final game of our trip back in Chicago at White Sox.
Now to sort through photos and keep the best and file the rest.
