Take Me Out To The Ballpark

Our first field trip of the school year was today ... we headed out to Turner Field the home of the Braves! I can tell you one of my kids was over the top excited about this outing. The girls were just happy to be out and about on a field trip with friends - they always love carpooling, as half the fun of any field trip we take is time spent with friends during the commute and out to lunch afterward.
Today's field trip did not disappoint ... it was a great opportunity to see Turner Field, when no one else is there. We ran around the plaza looking at all the great statues, visited the dugout, broadcasting booth, a suite, and my son's favorite part of the day - we were able to walk on the field. I thought he was literally going to explode with excitement when he took his first step out onto the warning track. Devin was also our junior tour guide filling everyone in on the details he thought we might have missed.

It must be nice to be close to Atlanta and have opportunity for great field trips.
