They have a very cool jungle gym area for kids to play, out behind the center field wall. Drew kept Grandpa busy, preferring to play than to watch the game.

Because we hadn't done enough already this weekend... :) we headed out to O'Brien Field after church today to take in "Carnival Day" with the Peoria Chiefs (the Cubs' single-A farm team). And, as luck would have it, they were playing against the Beloit Snappers, the Twins' farm team. And you can bet your bippy I dressed my boys in Twins apparel! :) (As an added bonus, Cubs DL players Reed Johnson and Aramis Ramirez were playing with the Chiefs this weekend.) Kids ate free, but since we had a huge celebratory lunch at Applebee's, Drew's hot dogs and chips are in the fridge waiting to be eaten for supper. Children were also allowed to run the bases after the game was over, but with a hot hot sun and no nap, Drew didn't quite make it through the ninth inning. We left the game in the middle of the eighth, and got home in time for him to crash in mom and dad's bed.
