Tourists in Our Own Town

While my mom was in her conference today, we took my Dad on a tour of Minute Maid Park.
Home of the Houston Astros, currently the worst team in the MLB.
But for my Dad, a lifelong Astros fan, it was a dream come true.

We got to tour the press box, the owner's suite, the diamond club (where the Bush family has seats) the dugout, and we even got to walk on the field.
Michael broke the rules and touched the grass when our tour guide wasn't looking.
What a rebel.
It was actually really interesting to see all the different parts of the stadium and to hear the history.
Here are a few pictures from our tour.
