"Build it and we will come"

The whole family took a trip up to Dyersville. We went to visit the field of dream's. I've been there a couple of time's but it's always been closed when I am there. This was the first time I was there and the gift shop was open. There is a Virtual Terracache there, and it too me two trip's to get the Confirmation code. I was kind of dumb and looked at the wrong sign and didn't pay close enough attention to the sign about 10 feet away. But that's ok, this gave me a reason to go back and when the wife said she wanted to go, well OK!!!! I'm kind of surprised a Geocache hasn't been placed there yet.

PJ took his camera and was taking photo's of everything. I'm glad it's digital and not film. But there was some people hitting some ball's and kind of playing some ball. There was also quite a few visitor's as well. We even ventured off to the corn in the outfield to do a photo opp. It's kind of neat they have kept this place going for so long, as this year is the 20th anniversary. I do wish it was open at night with the light's for the field on. I think that would be neat to see.

ooh fun. I've been there once and it wasn't open. I hadn't even seen the movie until 2 years ago when Kasey made me watch it... hehe.

It's been so long since I've seen the movie but as we walked around the place some part's of the movie came back to me, like the little girl falling off the bleacher's and started choking and one of the ball player's saving her but he had to give up baseball to help her.
