Another fabulous Trip Recap!

This year our baseball trip was cut short, or at least made shorter, because of the following reasons: 1. One of my friends is having a baby this summer so we had to bump the schedule to early in the season instead of later. 2. Weddings and other plans have taken a few weekends away this summer. 3. How else are we going to fit Minnesota Twins in a trip anyway?

So the trip –
Day 1 – Chicago Cubs day game, end the game get to the car drive to Milwaukee Brewers for their night game. Double header in two cities! POWERFUL!
Day 2 – Minnesota Twins.
Day 3 – Drive home.
