This year Chipper Jones is retiring. You don't really have to be a Braves fan or baseball fan for that matter to know who he is. He is the last standing Braves player that I remember growing up watching. You see if we weren't at the games, we were watching it at home. This is something that I have brought into my home. Sam and I watch the Braves together now! :) My grandma called me over the summer to see if there was a time when Sam and I would be able to get a weekend away to go to a game. Of course we could find a weekend to go to a Braves game, so last weekend, by some miracle, my dad's family along with my immediate family spent the weekend in Atlanta watching the Braves play. Unfortunately, the games that we went to were not wins for the Braves, but we all got to spend time together so it was still enjoyable!
Sam and I on the first night of games. It had rained as soon as we walked in the gate, but stopped before game time.
I finally got my Braves shirt after walking around vender street as I so appropriately named it. Finally, a shirt that I can wear to any game without having to worry about a player not being on the team anymore!
This was the view while we ate lunch. We were on the 2nd level. Our seats were on the 4th, but still had a great view!
Survived the heat on game two. Luckily, it decided to rain after we had already made it to the car and on our way home.
My family (minus Moriah who rode home with our cousin Alex) stopped in Chattanooga to eat supper. We ate at Sugar Ribs and man was it delicious! I would go back there in a heart beat. Notice that there are goats in the picture...
Yes, goats to visit while you eat. This one wanted some attention from Mike. I was a little freaked when he hopped on up to the fence!
We ended our dinner together and a weekend trip with a beautiful sunset. It was really fun to get away with my family. I don't think that we have done anything like that since Sam and I have been married. I do believe that this must happen again!
