…Detour from a business trip…

Filed under: Family, General, Travel — Kristina @ 3:47 pm

Just had to share a few pics of a detour from a business trip. Chris had to return a rental car to the Atlanta Airport last week. We probably won’t be doing a huge vacation trip due to saving for a mission trip, so we took the opportunity to “get away” Friday all day and Saturday…

Here is a bit of a log of the events…

Approx. 10 a.m. departure from the Tri-Cities…Chris & Connor in the rental car with Cayden and I following in the ever so faithful Honda. Cayden slept the first 2 hours, so it was a pleasant drive. We stopped to get lunch and then back on the road again. All was smooth until we hit Atlanta…FYI—-PAVING going on 4-5 lanes of the 7 on I-75 and I-85, so we hopped on the 285 by-pass and of course there was a fender bender. I don’t like to see other people have to go through that especially on such a fast paced highway…So, of course that was a delay. We finally arrived at our hotel, checked in and unpacked-then Chris surprised us with inexpensive lower level outfield tickets to see the Atlanta Braves! AWESOME! But this meant getting back into the car…aggghhhh! More traffic….

All went well we arrived just in time for the game to begin…PLAY BALL!!!!

Special date for us two as we have been coming to see the Braves since—before we married!


Connor has been a fan technically since the womb, the first time we brought him to a Braves game was before he was 1 year old and before the new Turner field was built.

Chipper Jones-“batta, batta, batta…..

Saaawwwiiiing! Chip gotta double!

Cayden’s first trip to Turner Field July 2008

Little Brave too busy to pose with Mom-did I mention this guy can throw?

Although they aren’t talking to each other in this pic, This is Cayden’s buddy from the game-coincidently it was first game for both boys!


7th inning stretch…”Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the park…”


‘Bout time!!!!
