Vacation Day One

As per usual our original plans did not work out. We were going to wake up at seven so Eric could mow the yard before we left for vacation, but a 30% rain chance turned into 100% chance..ha! So, we loaded the car and headed out!

I would like to pause right here to thank my in-laws who volunteered to drive 2hours in the middle of the week to mow our yard. We thank you and so do the neighbors. Ok, moving on!

Eli was an angel, really! We made it to Dalton where we ate Chick-fil-A in the car, and then it was off the the Atlanta Braves game to stretch a bit.

When we got to our seats Eli was in awe. It marked his third major league game, but the first he remembers. While we were sitting there I heard the ladies behind us laughing. Call it maternal instinct, but I knew it was Eli. So, I turned around to find that he had nabbed some cookies from their bag..Oh my! I tried to explain that it isn't polite to steal, but a sever thunderstorm popped up and drenched us.

The game was delayed two hours so we took a few fun pictures before leaving the stadium.

One of our vacation rules is that we DO NOT eat at chains, except for Chick-fil-A because they are clean, predictable, and entertaining for Eli. Anyway, staying true to our rule we stopped at the cutest Philly Cheese Steak stand. I'm sure my meal ad a gazillion calories, but it was well worth it!

With our bellies full we loaded up the van and headed for Valdosta where we stayed the night. More to come on day two later....
