Although Mike likes to shop more than most women, we did in fact find a his and her attraction in the Twin Cities. Mall of America was a must for me but, little did I know Mike was just as intrigued! I mean who wouldn’t be with roller coasters, Lego Land, golf course, aquarium and endless places to eat – all under one roof! We spent a couple of hours walking around, trying our best not to get lost amidst the Gaps, Apple Store and the Windows Store (yes, there was a Microsoft Windows Store and it looked remarkably similar to the Apple Store). One of the coolest things we saw was a giant robot made entirely out of Legos that would take one man, working 40 hour weeks, 7 years to complete!
The other half of the his and her attraction was a Minnesota Twins game. We had incredible seats, courtesy of Uncle Jim, at the new Target Field. One of the coolest features of the new park is that the entrance to the ballpark literally blends the street, entrance, right field stands into one – people walking right outside of the ballpark could catch a home run ball! We found Minneapolis to be a very friendly city and it’s obvious that they wanted passerby to feel like a part of the game. The Twins lost the game – that’s 2 out of 2 games that the home team lost. We’re starting to think that the Vagabonds bring bad luck to the home team. Let’s hope this holds true in Seattle as the Mariners take on the Yankees!
‘til next time… The Vagabonds
