When we had Jack earlier this year (almost 6 months ago!), we thought we'd skip the Tigers road trip for 2012.  However, about half way through the summer, I looked at the schedule again and realized that we could still make it to Minneapolis.  We had a great time!  We spent most of Friday at the Mall of America.  We decided to stay out by the mall because the hotel had a shuttle service and the city has a light rail system.  Between these two services, we didn't need to rent a car.  The mall was as expected.  It is HUGE.  Eric is not a fan of amusement parks BUT since the mall had a Nickelodeon park in the middle, I was able to ride a ride!  I rode a roller coaster that spun around while you were riding.  It was a good time for sure!

On Saturday we woke up and headed downtown on the light rail system.  We had heard about a beautiful park from our shuttle driver.  We decided to stop at Minnehaha Park on the way down.  It was so pretty.  There are normally falls running through the park, but with the dry summer, we spent more time looking at the changing colors.

We had a great lunch at a brewery near the field and then it was time for batting practice!  The Tigers normally take batting practice not long before the game when they travel.  It is fun to see them before they start playing.  Plus, you can usually get an autograph or two if you have patience (and a marker).  Luckily, kids will let you borrow theirs!  Don Kelly signed Jack's hat!

 Jack really doesn't mind the carrier which is nice.  He is able to nap in it and it keeps him safe while we are walking.

On Sunday while we were getting ready, Jack took a nap in the big bed.  He looks so small (and cute of course!).

Minneapolis was nice.  We are thinking possibly Kansas City for next year.
