We knew a trip to a Braves game was a defnite this summer. For sure. My big boy loves the Braves. He has also mentioned, regularly, going to a game since mama and daddy went without him a few weeks ago. So the decision was made.
And then another decision was made that baby boy would have to go with us. I just couldn't stand the thought of leaving him behind and worrying about baby-sitting arrangements and him missing out. So we took a risk and the whole family went...
The results are in and fun was had by all!!
I ended up taking Austin into the air conditioning (the only benefit to our seats) and hanging out with him for a while. We passed John Schurholtz in the hall, made eye contact, and smiled. Squeal!
It ended up working out perfect and we joined up with Terrell and Garrison half an inning later before taking the boys to do some fun stuff.
They absolutely loved "running the bases". We did this mulitple times and they might have stayed there all night if they could've.
After that we went over to make pictures in the big Coke seats before going back to run the bases some more. Doing the fun, interactive stuff at the beginning worked out great.
After all our fun we decided to try changing seats and moving to the shade. The nice usher didn't ask to see our tickets and it wasn't very crowded so we were able to enjoy a back row seat in the shade with a breeze the rest of the night. And the boys did really good!
They clapped, cheered, did the Chop, and even participated in The Wave while we were there. Hearing Go Baves! from Austin brought back memories from Garrison's first ever game. We were WAY more comfortable this time around though!
We are so thankful for the good experience and fun time we had for Austin's first game. God blessed us with safety, air conditioning, shade, fun, and a Braves win! We will definitely be making this a summer tradition. =)
