I know it’s July 9th already, so while this “wrap-up” may be late for most with my track record this is super fast!!!
We kicked off our festivities by taking Evan to his first Braves Game on July 3rd. We had given Pep’s Dad tickets for Father’s Day so it worked out good because we had more hands to help entertain the little guy.
His favorite player is Chipper … of course that’s because that’s the only player name he knows, so not only does he love Chipper but he loves every baseball player because if he’s in a uniform & baseball cap … well that’s Chipper!!! Anyways, he was incredibly excited!!! However he wasn’t excited about the game – he was excited because he thought he was going to play with Chipper!! I kept telling him we were going to the Braves Game & he kept telling me he was going to play with Chipper. This lasted until about the 4th or 5th inning … he kept wanting to know when it was going to be his turn to play?!? This watching stuff was for the birds!!
Unfortunately it wasn’t a good game for the Braves – we lost & ended the series being swept by the Phillies.
Then on July 4th, we went to our friends the Klehm’s house for a good old-fashioned cookout & fireworks show. We hadn’t gotten together in a while, so it was so good to see them!!!
