Take me out to the ballgame and other stuff

While we were on track break, Aunt Steph came into town. We went to the M&M factory to catch the 3-D movie, which turned out to be free. Then, walked through the gift shops, all 4 levels of them. (I think that's why the movie was free, they expect people to buy something.) Of course Aunt Steph had to "spoil" them, so she bought them each a small package of m&m's. (Anything else was too expensive, they had hot wheels car that looked like the m&ms race car for $16.00). Sorry I don't have any pictures there were great opportunities to take some cute pic's but I forgot my camera.
Then, as we walked back to our car, we walked outside on the strip to see some of it. It was a perfect day, weather wise. Then, we got to our car we went to McDonald's, then home to pick up Clint, who had just gotten off work, and headed over to the baseball game. The 51's were playing the Portland Beavers. It was so much fun. Even the girls had a good time. We stayed 'til the end. The girls were getting a little restless by then, but not too bad. Here some pictures to witness our great time....Proof that we were actually at a game, Abby took this.Showing off her toothless grinWe got a game ball with all the team members signatures on it, for being the first few hundred people there. Elsa was happier than she appeared.There's everyone before the game startedWe got the kids pictures as "baseball players", Elsa was the first
one to put her face in, but by the time I got my camera out, she was done. Darn it!
We all put on our "rally caps" in hopes that the 51's would come back and win the
game. They were winning, then the Beavers got a bunch of runs and they ended up winning, but
we had fun anyway with our rally caps and all. Clint, looking goofy as always.Abby even got in on the actionDallin loves baseball games
The next day, we had some tickets to the automobile museum, so we went to see some old cars.
It was interesting, but I'm glad we had tickets. The admission prices were too much. It wouldn't have been worth it if we had to pay. All we did was walk around and look at cars. Don't get me wrong they were cool cars, just not worth paying to see them. They had some James Bond cars, the Startsky and Hutch car, and other cool cars like that. Here are some pictures...This car has 3 wheels. If you look closely you can see that there's only one wheel
in the back. This was one of Clint's favorites.Dallin liked these race carsElsa liked this carDallin really liked this car, I don't blame him, it IS cool.These were Abby's favorite. That little red wagon was pretty cool.This was a pretty cool car too. Some of these cars were for sale, for a LOT of money.
Dallin, I think your a little too young to be at the bar. How would you like to go to this picnic. Yes! that is money all around them.Here's Calvin trying to dodge the cameraAbby really liked this car/couchAbby wanted to take a picture....she did pretty good
