At the beginning of the week, we headed to the Braves game as a family. Mr. Serious had just flown back into town and met us at the game.
We headed to a 5pm matinee game which worked out perfectly for our family. We hit a little traffic, however and didn’t make it until the middle of the third inning. The girls hadn’t seen daddy since Thursday, so they were happy he was there.
And basically, they all wanted to sit with him and hang out with him.
This was our first Major League game with the family. I was a little worried that the girls wouldn’t last, but they sat through those remaining innings. The five of them were crammed into three seats for most of the game asking Mr. Serious questions and learning more about the game.
You might have noticed all of the food? You can actually bring food into the braves game and even water and sippy cups. The lines for food got pretty long, so I was thankful that we brought dinner and snacks into the game with us. It helped us not have to wait in lines, spend more money and helped us not have to figure out what everybody wanted to eat.
I had no idea there was a Braves Museum & Hall of Fame inside Turner Field. We were supposed to go check it out, but we got into the game and forgot to go look until it was closed. We’ll have to head back another time before the Ted season is over. Thankfully, baseball has a pretty long season.
Since it was our first time, we just hung out in the stands and watched the game. We also did some fun Snaps, the wave and sang Take Me Out To The Ballgame. Also, I love that my oldest wore her had backwards.
Another thing we will have to go back for is Scouts Alley with games and activities for the kids. Lindsey, Redhead Baby Mama has more tips and info on Scouts Alley and 6 things I also never knew about Turner Field (and provided this picture). Meghan has a great list of 15 things you must do during the final season at Turner Field, too.
Because we were rushing so much on the way in, we didn’t stop to get a family picture, but we grabbed somebody on the way out and he got a nice family shot with everybody looking. That’s a win.
We had a great time at the Braves game and can’t wait to go back and check out everything else Turner Field has to offer during this last season, including these promotions.

What were you up to this week?
Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
