Braves Game at Sun Trust Park

Well in an effort to make my life more interesting( see my post The Stream from last week)  Marvin and I took in a Braves Game. Amelia gave us the tickets as a Mothers Day Fathers Day gift and we really had a fun time.  It was our first time at the new stadium which is actually in Marietta. Son Charles says now they are the Marietta Braves.

We set off from Grimmwood at one pm on Saturday knowing that we were not sure of the location for parking etc. Believe me, traveling to unknown parts of greater Atlanta is NOT boring at all.

We found our parking lot with a minimum of trouble. It is much more convenient than the old downtown stadium.  And you get to walk across Interstate 285 to get to the stadium.

It is a LOT of walking. I logged 6000 steps from the parking lot to the stadium and then back to the car.

The Chic Fil A cows were in attendance...

This Mama was showing her baby to the cow.

A kind person took pity on us old people trying to take a selfie and she took this photo for us. We wanted the Sun Trust Park sign in the background.

Our view...we had great seats.  We got to see a Grand Slam in the first inning. Unfortunately the Baltimore Orioles made it and not the Braves. It was hard to overcome that lead and the Braves lost 7 to 4.   This stadium is gorgeous and I was amazed at all the stores and food vendors located on the premises.  If you have a chance to catch a Braves Game, you will have a great time.

We are huge Braves fans here. Paul Allen has been dying to get to the new stadium. I miss the days when we could watch the games on TBS. Been a long time. Y'all look so cute.

Oh Arlene, thank you for the chuckle! I don't think you are boring at all. I think you are enjoying life in the manner that brings you contentment. It looked like you and Marvin had a wonderful outing to the Braves game.

What a nice photo of the two of you. Have you lost weight? You look great! All that walking probably! And my mother in law LOVES the Braves and watches all their games! Hugs!

I haven't been to a Braves game since our son Michael was little but I sure like the idea of Marietta being the new stadium. That sounds so much easier to get to. It looks like you two sweet people had a great that photo of the two of you. Like Robin said you are far from boring. That was a great gift too. RJ
