These are all the kids that were with us, that caravaned together. What a cute bunch of young 'uns!
We headed into the stadium, made our potty stop then made our way to our seats. Oh man, we had AWESOME seats! We were in left field (whatever that means, lol). All I know is we were in the shade, OUT of the sun. It was great! Before the game, some servicemen as well as some civilians brought out this enormous US flag. It was amazing...check it out...better yet, how bout a picture dump :-).
Here's the flag up on the giant monitor. Still, you can't get the full effect of how large this thing was.
Here's Mister M. and Jayla during the National Anthem. She was in awe!
Some girls in little shorty shorts were walking around the field shooting t-shirts out of a cannon (how do you apply for THAT job?) And this is Mister M. and Jayla yelling, "Up HERE!!! UP HERE!!!"Ok, these next few shots will kinda show how excited Jayla really was with this whole 4th of July event. First of all, she was so thankful that the Braves won BECAUSE it was the 4th, LOL. She cheered for EVERY-SINGLE player who walked out on the field! So what some of them were from the other team! She just loved it and totally enjoyed herself. She got a kick out of the "giant TV" that showed everything that was going on on the field. That's what she's looking at in these first few shots. Just look at her...
She even took a minute out to take a picture of me and daddy. Sometime between the 8th and 9th innings, we decided that, for the safety of our children, we'd leave the stadium and find a spot to sit and watch the fireworks.
Here's Jayla and our friend, Ava staring at the beautiful fireworks
Speaking of fireworks, I won't bore you with all the pictures I took of them. So how bout the best of the 10+ that I took :-). Pretty, huh?
Oh well, that's about it for our weekend recap. Hope you guys had a fun filled weekend as well. Oh, I forgot to tell you. Remember all the left over chicken I talked about? Well, I am happy to tell you that we were able to give the chicken away. On our way home from the game, we saw a homeless man standing on the exit ramp. So we gave it to him. I was so happy to be able to do that. And Jayla was excited to see that we gave food to someone who needed it.
You guys have a great week!! Toodles!
