Take Me Out to the Ball Game


If a baseball game isn't the perfect way to celebrate America and summertime, then I don't know what it is!


Last Saturday, my mom was lucky enough to nab some Braves tickets from work for my family to enjoy. The game was around 4, so we headed down to Atlanta that afternoon to Turner Field. Cody and I were really excited to go considering we've been really keeping up with the Braves this season. Plus, some ballpark baseball food was calling our names.









The tickets were amazing.
We were pretty much sitting on the field, with the perfect view of Justin Upton in front of us.
We were worried awhile back when my mom got the tickets that Atlanta weather in July would be brutal. But with super lower humidity and a breeze, it was perfect summer baseball weather.





We enjoyed soft pretzels, beer, peanuts and for me, dippin dots in a miniature Braves helmet! (Cody splurged so I could get the souvenir hat)


The Braves battled their way back from a 3-0 deficit, to eventually win 10-4 against Arizona. I was secretly hoping it would be a close game so I could watch Kimbrel, but it wasn't quite. Still though, completely happy for a Braves win at the Ted.





We ended our night with a much needed stop at the world famous Varsity, for chili cheese dogs, bacon hamburgers, onion rings and fries. Calories don't count on holiday weekends.


We had so much fun, and hopefully Cody and I can do it again before the seasons over come the fall!
