The Bakers go see the Twins vs Brewers

We have had a busy past few weeks traveling! It has been so much fun and the boys are such good travelers- after all they are very used to it!  Life is good here- the boys are officially on baseball schedule- staying up until 11 (or midnight sometimes :) ) AND they sleep until we get them up at 10 AM!!!! I know it sounds CRAZY to some- but its our life and we love it!  The boys deserve to see their daddy- so we adjust to his schedule!  Darkened room and sound machine work wonders!  Scott and I have enjoyed getting the boys to bed then getting to spend time together because now they sleep in!!! YEAH!!  In Milwaukee Becca and Eli shared a room and Scott, Easton, and Mommy were in a room!  We enjoyed Milwaukee, the hotel, The Pfister, is beautiful and right on the water!  Miller Park is amazing and we had a really fun time! I cant wait to take the boys back next year! Its only a 5 hour drive from Maple Grove!

Miller Park

Scott batting!

Eli and Becca watching Scott pitch in Milwaukee- 
It was scorching hot there but we had
great seats in the shade with a fan!

Mommy and Easton 

We took an hour and a half boat ride 
on the river- It was beautiful! 
The boys were done 20 minutes in
and we had no where to go :)
Snack time....

A great children museum in Milwaukee 
in walking distance to our hotel!

The boys playing together!!!

We went to Kansas City last week- I'll update from that trip when I have more time!  Becca went home on July 4th! I'm sure she misses the boys already!  We spent July 4th grilling out at the Kubel's house and hanging out!  Its hard to go watch fireworks in a public place when your husband is easily recognized and we hang out with other player's families!  The boys and Mommy went to church and to the field on Sunday (today)!  We are so excited to spend tonight with Daddy and we have an off day tomorrow (Monday- followed by a night game) - so 48 hours with Daddy!  The boys are LOVING IT!!  Easton cries now every time Daddy leaves- he loves his Daddy and doesn't understand.  At the hotel in Milwaukee Easton cried for over 30 minutes after Daddy left.  More from Kansas City......

Happy Father's Day!
We had a great time at "Family Day" at the Dome on 
Father's Day!  There was a family game where Gardy 
pitched to the kids and they announced the starting line up with all
the families!  It was a lot of fun!  When we got ready
for the morning Aunt Becca put on Eli's jersey and he said
with a VERY serious face, 
"Everyone is going to think I'm Scott Baker today!"  

It was very cute! We can no longer go ANYWHERE 
around baseball without people knowing what player
we belong to because the boys favor daddy so much!!
Its okay with me though, because obviously I think my hubby
is VERY cute so I'm glad the boys take after him!

The Baker Family!

The Twin's wives!

Mommy and Easton

Easton saying "catch Daddy!"

Gardy pitching to Eli! After every hit he ran the bases! 
He is batting SO well! He is not missing a thing not being in little league...
after all he is practicing on a major league field!  

Rachel Kubel and Becca 
Mommy's handsome sweet boys! (Yes- I even think Daddy is 
handsome and very sweet :) )
Playing at the Minnesota Children's Museum!

Happy summer everybody!  We are loving the mild weather here in Minnesota!  We have been very busy this past few weeks!  We have taken the boys to Chicago, the pool, to have breakfast with Clifford, and to family day on Father's Day at the Dome!  We are loving all of our family time, even though the schedule looks like we are not home much- we are going to see Scott on the road quite a bit!  We are headed to Milwaukee and Kansas City next week!

The outdoor pool at the Maple Grove Community Center!
It was in the 80's- 

Scott batting at Wrigley Field- a very crowded game!

Leann, Kieffer, Lauren, and Becca in Chicago

Everyone enjoying dinner- the boys
sat through a long dinner and were great as usual :)
Baseball life has made them well behaved 
in places like this! 

GREAT seats at Wrigley- a few rows behind home plate!
We had a BLAST in Chicago!

Having snacks at the game! 

Watching some baseball!

Shopping in downtown Chicago!

Watching a movie and coloring on the way to Chicago!

Easton being SO silly in the car!

Watching Daddy pitch on TV- he was in Oakland! Hence their PJ's- 
the game started at 9:00 here!

Eli had to have this mustache out of a 
quarter machine! It was very funny!
Check back soon for pictures of Father's Day and Family Day at the Dome- we HAD a BLAST!

Okay... there hasn't been a blog in a while!  We have been busy!  Its amazing how two little boys can keep someone SO busy!  We are almost completely settled here in Maple Grove! And we LOVE it here!  We couldn't have chose a better place to live!  The boys love it here! There is SO much to do!  Minnesota is really a great place to raise a family!  And all in all, this is where most of our time is spent!  So at least we picked a great one!

Owen, Blake, and Rachel (Jason's sister) came over for dinner and a play date!  The boys all play so well!  

Owen and Eli
Both boys wanted to clean!!
At the children's museum for a birthday party!  Ha- all three boys somewhat matched- and not on purpose!  Remember we are up north now- matching is NOT the IN thing here! :)
Giving Mommy flowers.... what a sweet boy!
Nana and the boys at the Minnesota Zoo!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  We have lots of fun things planned! Aunt Becca is coming for the month of June and we are traveling to the Cubs, Royals, and Brewers games!  Its going to be a busy month, but SO much fun!

I know it has been a long time since we have posted on the blog..... We have been SO busy..... We took a trip to Minnesota for Mother's Day and less than 36 hours after arriving back in Shreveport.... Mommy went to NYC for 5 days with Daddy WITHOUT the boys.... And now, 5 days after NYC we are back in Minnesota until September!  Nana and Papal are here this week! We have been busy getting everything done to leave for almost 5 months!

Our family on Mother's Day and Family Day on the field!!!

Riding the rides at Como Zoo....... 
They LOVED it..... 
so much that they have season passes!

Happy Mother's Day Gammy!  We all had SO much fun on our trip! We know Gammy will miss the boys SO much!  Thank you for watching them when I was in NYC.... I know they were spoiled rotten!

Mommy was SPOILED by her three wonderful boys on Mother's Day!!
 Daddy is very sweet to Mommy! 
 I hope the boys learn this from Daddy and SPOIL their wives when they are older!  

Gammy with all of us at Family Day!  The boys enjoy her baseball skills on the field!  Hey- maybe Daddy got some baseball talent from Gammy!  She is very athletic!!

Easton loved standing on the bases!
Gammy playing baseball with Easton!
What a lucky little boy..... daddy pitching to Eli with the Twins hitting coach catching and giving Eli hitting instructions!

Kisses are the thing when he sees Daddy!!! So sweet!
