All in all, a great night at the ballpark. It won’t be our last game of the season. We’re hoping to take in a few more games and make another road trip or two. Pretty hard to beat some hot dogs, family time, and a little Braves baseball. Good for the soul. Hopefully we’re continuing to create some great family memories for the kids – I know they are memories that Mom & Dad won’t soon forget.
Braves vs Rockies…The No Hitter
Our new favorite past time this spring (or at least Thomas’ favorite) has been going to see the Braves play in Atlanta. We made a last second trip (imagine that) Saturday afternoon to catch our second game of the season. The kids needed some new gear, so we picked up some new shirts along the way as well. As you can see below, Carter’s favorite player is Brian McCann and although Caley has no idea yet who Jason Heyward really is, she made a very wise decision with her choice.
The first game we attended was a shutout, so there wasn’t a whole lot of action for the home team that game. This game wasn’t much better. Jiminez for the Rockies threw a no hitter against our team. At least we can say we saw a no-no. Anybody want to take a guess (without cheating) at how many no hitters there have been in the Majors)?
The highlight of the night was just before game time. We sat near the Braves bullpen and the boys walked down to get a closer look just before the first pitch. The guys in the pen threw each of them a little souvenir. As you can see from their pics below, they were pretty excited. Caley was satisfied with a little face painting and plenty of snacks.
