PostHeaderIcon Happy 90th Birthday Tom!!

Today was a very nice day. We celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday. The party was held at Jax Restaurant in Minneapolis. We have about 45 people come to help him celebrate. My nephew Blake and his wife flew in from Atlanta which was a wonderful surprise for us all.

Tonight was a fun night, I was awarded two tickets from work to the Twins Game. It was in the company’s suite and was it ever nice. There were other 10 other employees with us. Our hosts had sheets with questions about the game to answer before it started. If you answer was correct as the game progressed you won a prize. I got a Twins Baseball hat.

They served hamburgers, hot dogs, walleye and chicken fingers. We had chips and dip, pop, wine, beer, and water. Then there was the desert cart! OMG it was fabulous, just about every kind of desert you could want. From cake, to cheesecake, to cup cakes to pastries. Tom took the OMG this good Carrot cake. Yes that is what they made him call it. I had a taste of it, and it was really good. I choose the New York style cheesecake and it was yummy. The suite had two high tables, and then one longer table that over looked the stadium. Then here were two rows of seats with an overhang to keep the weather off. It was a little chilly that night, but the heaters above the seats were most welcome. They also had two flat screen TV’s one in the suite and one above the seats. So it was nice to be able to look up and see the players. The Twins played the Kansas City Royals and won so that was a bonus.

The picture below was captured by an employee who was not with our group (Thanks Jenelle). She looked up at the jumbtron and saw us and made her husband take a picture with his cell phone. It’s a great memory and I’m so glad I got to go!
