We drove down to the Braves game this past Thursday evening to meet my husband's aunt, his cousin and her daughter, who is the same age as Cullen. The two kids vaguely remember meeting once a few years ago at a wedding when Kaylee wanted very much for Cullen to dance with her, but he couldn't bring himself to try that yet! Neither of them being a bit shy, they became fast friends before the game.
They each managed to get a ball during batting practice, and since there were no players available, they had their balls autographed by Homer, the mascot.
After a brief rain shower, which was very welcome because of the heat and for the opportunity to run around in the rain while the adults all huddled under cover, we settled down to watch the game.
Cullen's interest in baseball has really become serious lately, so he followed closely while trying to encourage his dad to show some spirit when the wave came around to our section! During the fourth inning, as we walked around looking for something to eat, I spotted the perfect place for a photo. I had Cullen stand so that the field could be seen beyond and below him from right behind home plate. As I snapped pictures, Heyward hit a home run, and you can see exactly how much of a Braves fan our little guy actually is.
If you look closely, you can also see that he had just finished off a blue snow cone!
