Take me out to the Ballgame…

To celebrate the 4th of July, we went to the Braves Baseball game and roasted in the stands. We had great seats for the sun to pelt us throughout the game. The children all wanted cold things to drink while baking in the sun and cheering on our favorite team! After the game, we got to watch amazing fireworks which the children all thought were wonderful! Cookie was thrilled to find a Matt Diaz shirt in the Gift shop. Diaz is the brother to one of her favorite singers, Jonny Diaz. Opie had hopes of catching a foul ball with his glove on most of the game, but was just as thrilled to watch McCann hit a homerun right in front of him! The flag that covered a lot of the field before the game during the National Anthem was held up by JROTC Cadets in the surrounding Atlanta area. It was quite impressive.

We’ve been going to the Braves since Cookie was this size. Now M&M is wearing her shirt.. stating.. “Don’t Mess with the Braves!”
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!

  1. Oh – so sorry we missed you! We were at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. It was just my husband and me. The kids went to the teen mass. Maybe we’ll see you this weekend if you’re still here. I don’t know what mass we’ll be at, but it’s usually 10:30 Sunday…

  2. hmm, i don’t know if i knew you were here in ATL. We went to a game mid-May, before they started winning all the time (literally the last game before their winning streak began).

    I love the flag on the field, and your dd’s shirt is ADORABLE!! (pretty much loving the long pig tails too!)
