Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Saturday, April 18, 2009


This is the opening weekend for the Gwinnett Braves, the Atlanta Braves AAA Team (formerly the Richmond Braves). Our friends, Mere and C, invited us to tailgate with them before the Saturday Night game.

We arrived at the park early (4 p.m. for a 7:05 p.m. first pitch) and parked our cars near the back grassy area.

The Caterpillars had a blast rolling down the hill and playing "spy"!

C grilled hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken for sandwiches - all were delicious.

GO sat with Cookie and Hubby, she seemed to like the outdoors. The weather was perfect, not to cold, but not hot either.

Inside the Gwinnett Braves Stadium they had all sorts of new and funny things. Chick-Fil-A is a major sponsor and this is my favorite part of their sponsorship:

We lost the game, but the Caterpillars actually made it all the way to the end of the game (it's the first time we've seen all 9 innings with them sitting in their seats).
Cookie brought playdough to keep the Caterpillars entertained - CW made little baseball players!
It's going to be great having a minor league team so close to us AND they serve fried dill pickles inside the Stadium! (How awesome is that?)

Baseball season - HERE WE COME!

WHAT???!!!! No one told me they had fried pickles. That in itself is a reason to go to a game. Are the good? Spears or chips? I have so many questions! :)
