This week Addy got to expereince her first Twins game. We went on Labor Day with Grandpa Ron, Grandma Dana, Scott, Amanda, Ainsley, Thaddeus, Ben, Addy and I. It was so great! When we sat down a man from the Joe Mauer Fan club came over to ask if it was anyone's first Twins game. Of course it was for Addy. He proceeded to give us a bunch of free stuff and gave us a first baseball mit and ball. In the pictures below you will be able to see the ball and mit. He also told us it would be on a Twins website after the game. So..enjoy the pictures and the awesome article about Addy. GO TWINS!
