I just love this cow. He is so cute, so is the little guy next to him.
(I am having a hard time entering the pictures right side up, so until I figure it out, here are some pictures that are rightside up.)
Some favorites were the movie, listening to a game on an old time radio, and of course posing with Babe Ruth. Gavin also enjoyed the game and finding the answers to the questions. We really had a great day and we didn't have to share the museum with many people, which I always enjoy. At the end of the museum, we walk around the town and purchased a world champion NY Yankee pez dispenser. Cooperstown is all about baseball, and everywhere you walked in this quaint town was a remembrance of that all American pastime. (I guess my pictures are NOT going to corporate and you are going to get them sideways... I tried everything and still nothing will change them, they are appearing in my retrieval area right side up. I don't know whats up.)
Anyways, we had a great time. So great in fact we both decided that we needed to take a trip again this time with Daddy and brother Ben. They are much more interested in baseball then I am, and would really like to see the Baseball Hall of Fame. We planned a return trip in 2011 and this time we went camping too.
On our return trip we booked a long Holiday weekend at Jellystone (of Cooperstown, but not in Cooperstown, and Bube joined us.) We did the same course as I did the first trip and began our visit on the trolley. We rode the first trolley in of the day, and I was pretty confident we would miss the crowds once again. It began apparent as we got closer that we were bound to hit crowds, it was the fourth of July weekend and it was going to be a crowded day. We planned to meet up with Mark's mom; Bube at the entrance and she was late, so we waited and waited and waited.
She finally arrived and I was able to score discounted tickets with my AAA card. (Always good to check out if you can get a discounted deal).
Even with the discount the price wasn't cheep. We spent some time gathering ourselves and missed the first showing of the movie. The boys got game instructions and took off ready to compete with one another.
I had to get another picture of this adorable cow.
Another sideways picture, but here are the boys infont of a Yankee locker.
Bube and my little guy.
Hubby in the Baseball Hall of Fame!
Me a future hall of famer. Yeah right!
I am so frustrated with the sideways pictures, I needed to take a break from my blog. I really don't understand why it will not let me load them correctly. Trying to let it go....So where was I, bottom line is we all enjoyed ourselves, it was much more fun with my whole family (or most of it) and it was nice to have my Mother in Law come with us. After the Hall of Fame, we visited the town we enjoyed a nice, but incredibly crowded lunch at one of the restaurant's with some silly name like the Dugout or something (I cannot remember). We also stopped by Double Day Field, with all of it's history and caught a few innings of a little league game.
