More free tickets!

The ticket fairy came to the Gafford household again! This time we had the opportunity to go to a Minnesota Timberwolves game. I've never been to an NBA game and was actually very excited about it. (Those of you who know me well are probably shocked!) But the thing that made it all the more fun was the fact that our seats were Row 9, seats 1 & 2! ROW 9! Not even in the middle of row 9, but the end! We were so close to the court that there were actually waiters and waitresses coming to take orders so you wouldn't have to leave the game for your concessions. You can see in these next few pictures how incredible our view was (and also the fact that it's hard to take clear pictures of NBA action!)

We thoroughly enjoyed the half time show provided to us by the Twin Cities Jazzercise group. It consisted of about 80 women, 4 little girls, and 1 man. Very entertaining!

Unfortunately, the Timberwolves lost this game, but we had a VERY fun experience anyway! Thanks so much, Terri for the tickets!

Fun at the MOA

David's parents flew into town on Saturday and after David and I picked them up from the airport we decided to swing over to the Mall of America for a while since it's pretty much right across the street. We took the opportunity to visit the world's largest underwater aquarium, Underwater Adventures. It was really cool. You go through these glass tunnels with fish, sharks, stingray, turtles, you-name-it, swimming all around and over you. It was very entertaining.

David got to pet a stingray. He said it felt really smooth.

I think our favorite part was the tank of coral. It was really cool to see the incredible variety!

Minnesota Wild

Yes, we are WAY behind on posts. We've been a little busy lately as you'll be able to see in the next few posts.

A couple of weeks ago, one of my students' moms came in to help grade papers and offered to take us to a hockey game while she was there. We're not known for turning down free tickets, so we agreed to join them. We had a great time! They kept me out a little later than I like to on a school night, but it was worth it!
