Braves!

We're back! Though we needed to eat our weight in slushies, ice cream cones, and snow cones to keep from melting, we had a fantastic time at the Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins baseball game in Atlanta on Saturday. Jason mentioned in passing one weekend (a good long time ago) that he wished Amelia could go to a Braves game before longtime Manager, Bobby Cox, retires. My wife brain logged that little tidbit immediately, and thus, this was his anniversary present from me. How does one go about purchasing secret tickets to an event one knows nothing about? With LOTS of help from co-conspirating family, friends, and 7th grade students (who helped me choose the right seats). Thanks all!!
Then, in all manner of coincidences, not only were our best pals also attending that game--it was "kids run the bases day" at Turner Field! Below is a (blurry) picture of Amelia and her best friend Ainsley running the bases. Supercool!
