Home of the Braves

 
We recently took the boys to see the Braves play...
 
 
 
They're moving to a new stadium in the suburbs in the next couple of years,
and Luke had never been to Turner Field.  (It was built for the '96 Olympics.)



The new stadium will actually be a lot closer to us, but it's weird that it
won't be in the heart of Atlanta.



It was such a lovely night, complete with Coke and Chick-fil-A!



And, of course, lots of fun...



The Braves even rallied to go into extra innings...



But, in the end, we lost by a run...

Any excuse to "take me out to the ball game" is okay with me.

What great pictures. Hope you and the family made some happy memories. Doesn't get any better than baseball, Chick-fil-et and (well, not Coke) but Pepsi!! :)

How fun!! My bf is from Atlanta and the new stadium will be near his folks' home and looks so cool with the wicked revolving roof!

Glad you got a chance to take the boys again!

many (as in lots of many) years ago I went to a Braves game while living in the Atlanta area. Lots of fun. It is always hard to move from what has become a tradition to a new location - but I'm sure it will eventually feel right too.

It looks like a night to remember!

I had no idea they were moving the stadium! I can't even imagine that. Seems odd, but I guess necessary. Glad you got to got o Turner Field. My boys and hubby go every summer, but we girls have been left out.

Your photographs sum up for me the iconic United States I have never been to or seen a game but I'm sure the sounds and sights must be fantastic.

Wonderful sequence of photos. The same thing happened with our baseball stadium in Omaha. The old one is now gone and the new is up and running. I miss the old one.

That is right! I forgot you lived down south near me! Looks like they had fun. Strange to think that they will be in a new stadium in another couple of years.

Little boys and baseball! What a great combination! I really like the *skyline* shot.

Baseball is such good summer fun.

Our new ball park in SF is gorgeous, overlooking the bay. I love to go there!
