Atlanta Braves!

We knew that the Atlanta Braves wouldn't be playing in the pennant race this year, but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves at the game on Saturday, September 30! It was Fan Appreciation Weekend as they played the Houston Astros, and we had a ball! Drew and Mikayla as soon as we got to our seats! I think they were amazed with how big the stadium was! We had wonderful seats - we were in the lower section in the outfield 8 rows back from the field. We were almost directly behind center fielder, a little to the left of Braves Vision. Braves Center Fielder Andruw Jones was playing directly in front of us. Drew thought this was too cool - they have the same name you know! I apologize for the pictures being blurry - I was using my old digital cameras for these pictures. I had filled the card for my new camera at the aquarium - imagine that! Drew and Mikayla enjoy cotton candy at the game!MY Chipper Jones is playing third base! He did not start in this game, and when they announced the line-up I was a little bit bummed (to say the least)! When he came in at the beginning of the eighth inning, I couldn't stop snapping pictures! This is the best picture I could get from zooming in with old camera - no worries though, hopefully next year we will go back and our seats will be on the third base line directly behind him!! I wonder if you can check to see if he is playing before you book your tickets? HAHA

Drew and Mikayla in the van as we were getting ready to leave the stadium. You can tell by their faces that we had a wonderful time! They both got an Atlanta Braves shirt and a baseball with a picture of Chipper Jones along with his autograph (you know mommy had nothing to do with this)!!The Braves put up a huge fight to beat the Astros, even rallying in the ninth to come within a run. The game ended 5-4 in favor of the Astros. We still love the Braves, and plan on attending next season!!

Mikayla, Drew, and Mommy after loading up to head back to South Carolina on Sunday! We had a wonderful time in Atlanta visiting the Georgia Aquaruim and Turner Field for the first time! Hopefully Drew and Mikayla will never forget the time we spend as a family!
