60. go to a Braves game

Last Tuesday, Gary and I made our way back to Turner Field for the first time together since our first date!

Oh and it was also the Braves home opener! 🙂

Since the game wasn’t until later that night, we decided to make the most of our trip and spend the day in Atlanta.

We made our first stops of the morning at Chick-fil-a and Starbucks and then a few short hours later, we met up with Mike and had lunch at The Fickle Pickle in Roswell.  The Brie BLT and fried pickles I had were delish! We missed you, Andrea!

Next we headed to pick up some things from Ikea!Braves Home Opener 2014 | Atwell Adventures.002

When we finished there, we still had a couple of hours until game time, but were still pretty full from lunch. What to do, what to do… I guess we’re never too full for ice cream!  {I promise we ate more than just cones…}

The home opener was also the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s 715th home run, so they honored him by having 715 signs on the field and also dedicated uniforms to him from all the sports teams in Atlanta.  It was sweet watching him and the highlights from that game.

Sadly, the Braves did not win this game.  We’ve been told we are banned from attending games because apparently we’re bad luck, but I have a feeling, we’ll be back again!  We even talked about making opening day a tradition – and you all probably know how I feel about traditions

And before we left the great city of Atlanta, we made one more stop… back to The Varsity.  Can you really go to a Braves game without that? The answer – if you grew up as a Queen – is no, you cannot, even if you have to run six miles the next day {maybe not my best decision ever}.
