Filming with Hannah

This post is from a concert we had about a week ago. What made it different from other concerts was that a family we know came to our concert, and afterwards their daughter, Hannah Kenny, filmed us for a D.V.D. She did a great job and we were so impressed by her video and photography skills. After the concert, the church had a yummy banquet and then a big drawing with many prizes. We were so blessed and amazed when the church gave our family a hand- made bench made out of beautiful wood! Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it, but if you stop by you'll see it right above our stair case. ;) We kids also had a fun time playing fhoseball, ping pong, and air hockey; but I don't have pictures of that either because there is no way you can get me to stop in the middle of a competitive game to take pictures! :D

Hannah and I after the filming was done.

Isaac is helping Mom look for something. (Or else Mom is trying to hide her face. :)

After the filming was done Hannah rode with us down to the Vest's home where we dropped her off to do a documentary on Amy Vest and Loving the Lord Ministries. We had a lot of fun playing games with Hannah in the car!

April Twins Game

Target Field was amazing! After having the metro dome for so many years I definitely vote that the outdoor stadium was a great improvement! (Especially with the weather we had! :D) My Dad's boss got season tickets and split them with the co-workers!!! We got really good seats too. I was in the front row of left field in foul territory; right next to the yellow pole. It was cool because I was right next to Young who made some pretty good plays in that game.

Now for my families favorite Twins Players!
Dad: Justin Morneau
Isaac: Denard Span
Lucas: J. J. Hardy (Because he was a former Brewers player and Lucas likes the Brewers better than the Twins! Booooooooo!)
AnaLise: I am still currently mourning the loss of my previous favorite Twins player, Carlos Gomez, (as you can tell by my shirt number 22.) He got traded to the Brewers so even though he's still my favorite base ball player, I've had to make the tough decision of a new favorite Twins player. Announcing... Justin Morneau!!!

Tessa: Denard Span

Here's us kids standing with former Twins player, Tony Oliva. It just so happens that my grandmother is the honorary godmother of Tony Oliva's son!!

By the time the game was starting it was really packed!
