Sincerely Fro Me to You

These pictures don't go very far back, but I'm hoping they'll help the Braves snap out of the funk that they're in...maybe more for next year than this year though, lol. Any of you who are Braves fans know what I'm talking about. Maybe a little reminiscing will bring some luck to our favorite baseball team! About this time 3 years ago, we were preparing for Wes to be deployed overseas, and we got a phone call saying we'd won 2 tickets to a Braves game, with a tour on the field and vip seats in the Fox SportsSouth box! It actually ended up that the weekend the game would be, was the weekend before Wes left, so we decided someone was wanted us to have some fun before Wes left and we made it a full weekend in Atlanta. We got to the stadium early, and we were able to go down on the field:

This is a picture of us with one of the old FSS broadcasters. Although it was so fun being down there, it was blazing hot...I'm not sure how the guys stand it. The game the night before had gone late and since this game was a day game, we unfortunately didn't get to see batting practice close up. But they let us go into the deep dark depths of the stadium...not in the locker room , but outside of it, and we saw some players come through. We have a few pics with a couple of players, but none of them play for the Braves anymore :( Then it was up to the box to watch the game. Wes and I sat inside in the air conditioning and had a great time. If you've ever been to a game, you know how they have the crazy wild people who pick fans to play games and win prizes in between the innings. Well, since Wes was getting ready to be deployed, he was picked from our group! Here he was on the big screen:

Of course, he got the question right, and we won a prize pack that included a $50 gift card to several local restaurants - woo hoo - supper was paid for!!!

We just hung out the rest of the game, then picked one of the restaurants to go eat at. It was a great weekend that we spent in Atlanta. We try to go to several games each year...Jackson has already been to one, don't you worry :) But this game will be hard to beat! Go Braves!!!
