Our Trip ~ Day Four “Sea Dog Day!”

Family Vacation ~ Go Sea Dogs!
Portland Sea Dogs

Those of you that have been following our trip I appreciate it! Today we were in Maine, and we went to the Portland Sea Dogs game! It was a TON of fun! We had never been to a baseball game together before. The tickets were only $8 a piece for GREAT seats, they had games they played during the breaks, and music that kept things fun! I would definitely recommend attending a game as a fun family outing.

LL Bean Freeport, ME was there sponsoring the game! We played some fun games on our way into the park! We threw a boot into the net. I got it on my first try! Whoo-hoo! LL Bean also gave out $25 gift cards to people in some lucky seats, and they played Twitter Trivia. They would ask a question and you would tweet the answer to them! I won one! Yay! They tweeted me back and said I got the trivia question correct and first. I got to find their table and get a prize! I won a LL Bean backpack! It was fun! I think we are going to drive to Freeport tomorrow to visit the LL Bean Outlet! Thanks @LLBeanFreeport!

For dinner we headed over to a restaurant in downtown Portland called Nosh! It was an upscale sandwich restaurant and had some interesting selections on the menu. The atmosphere and service were good. Check out some of the food we ordered.
