Hometown Meets Braves Game
Naturally, when you go to a Braves game, you run into people you know from your hometown that's 300 miles away! I didn't think to get our picture with them (I'm not into the whole selfie thing), but it was really bizarre to be on a MARTA train and see people you went to church with growing up standing across from you. Hello to the Beardens and the Lipthratts!
We also did not know until we arrived that it was alumni weekend. They were just finishing up the veterans softball game when we arrived. Smoltz, Klesko, Maddux, Eddie Perez, Javy Lopez. It was like old times!
Luke was also very into the game for the first time ever. He was asking all kinds of questions about the intricacies of the rules, he was clapping along with the organ, and he insisted that we stay for the whole game. Who are you and what have you done with my child who is usually ready to play on a phone by the 2nd inning and ready to leave by the 5th? He also ate half a large popcorn, a very large slice of pizza, and and ice cream cone, plus 2.5 large bottles of water. He's going to be taller than I am before the end of the year if he keeps this up!
Currently feeling: take me out to the ballgame!
