Some things never change.
On to get some "fan" gear for the game.
We should have hit the shops before lunch because it was packed...like lines circling the store several times to checkout busy. So I kept the boys busy...
They wanted to take a picture with the mannequin while waiting. Daddy is finished heading our way and one of Kentrell's teammates is in the background.
As we were leaving we noticed the obstacle course was finally open. Here is the thing...one of my boys is very cautious about everything and the other is an adrenaline junkie...not only that BUT I could not be on the same obstacle as the hesitant one while I was REQUIRED to be no more than an arms length away from the adventurer.
My oldest had to be helped across on this one, then he decided he had enough, if I had went first I think he would have been fine. He wants to try it again. The younger one wanted to go to the top (3 stories up) and do some crazy ones but I wasn't feeling it. Mainly because both of us walking together made the cables shake so much and I was more worried about making him slip...ok maybe me too.
We made it back to get our tickets and start walking to the game. Yes, you heard that right we decided to walk about 20 minutes in December in Minnesota! It really wasn't bad on the way because we used the skywalks up until the last 3 or 4 blocks because we needed to get food and all places were closed along the walkways. The boys got their wish and had Subway for dinner, except they didn't have the makings for a pizza sub. I was a bit disappointed, that is my go to sandwich there.
One of the rare times I like a photo of just me... ok any picture of me.
After the game, they lost to the Dallas Cowboys, we went to the players' lounge to wait for the team to change and be released. It was kinda cool being down there and learning more about the other players...well their families.
The next morning we packed up and I took the boys for a quick swim before checking out. We had the pool to ourselves...well except the gym is a wall of windows that look in on the pool so we felt like we were on display.
We spent the rest of the day with Kentrell mainly at the arcade in Mall of America and just chilling at his house before heading back home. It may have been a quick trip but can't say we will forget it.
