Braves Game Part 2

Braves Game Part 2

This time, Adams father invited us and Adam’s uncle Bill to a weekday game. Since we had such a good time at the last game, we decided to go again. This time, the theme was “Zombie Night” and they put a ‘Walking Dead’ Zombie filter on each of the players photos. Many fans had dressed up and put on zombie makeup and were featured between innings. We had a great time and the fireworks display they had after the game was really well done.

Braves Stadium is beautiful. I still don’t know why they need another one in Smyrna.

Kennesaw State Park Summer Hike

Kennesaw State Park Summer Hike

We hadn’t done much hiking this summer due to the heat, but decided one afternoon to try a different part of Kennesaw State Park (since it’s close by). Overall, it ended up being a pretty flat hike where we walked past lots of battlefields. We even saw a deer in part of the woods. The view from the Illinois memorial is beautiful, overlooking the sprawling battlefield. Even though it was hot, the park has some nice scenery.

Miracle League training camp and Braves Game

Miracle League training camp and Braves Game

Earlier this year, my younger brother was selected to take part in a training camp with the Atlanta Braves for the Miracle league. It was close to where I live so my parents stayed over at my home for the weekend. The Braves were even nice enough to give everyone in the family tickets to the game that night. It was the first Braves game that I had ever attended and they won! My brother had a great time at the training camp. He did amazing at each station. The players and the kids all seemed to have a fun time. The stadium seemed nice so I don’t know why they need to build another one close to where I live.

Meet Prince Charming!

Meet Prince Charming!

After Jasmine passed away, Cinderella had a hard time dealing with it. Her depression got so bad that she almost passed away. She got sick and refused to eat much. She lost about 20% of her already tiny body mass. While she did bond with us more, we knew she needed a friend.

On July 18th we went to the Atlanta Bird Fair and fell in love with this super sweet cuddly budgie. He is absolutely adorable and way too clueless to understand when Cinderella is being too pushy (which has actually softened Cinderella’s temperament). As soon as she felt she had competition for food, she gained all the weight back and now she is constantly full. They both get along great and Charming adores Cinderella and wants to be where ever Cinderella is. He also is such an explorer and will climb in areas that Cinderella and Jasmine would have been scared to look at. He absolutely loves hanging out on stuffed animals, which all my previous birds have been terrified of. He is so sweet, clueless at times, but so sweet.

Smokey Mountain Anniversary Trip

Smokey Mountain Anniversary Trip

For our 5 year wedding anniversary, we took a trip to Bryson NC. We got a great deal on staying at a Watershed Resort cabin. The cabin was wonderfully decorated and had a lot of fun extras! The town is adorable, although it shuts down really early. We went hiking and saw multiple waterfalls. We lucked out with the weather; it was suppose to rain the whole time but we got a break during the day. Not only is the city really cute and friendly but the police really go above and beyond. Our GPS wasn’t working and we couldn’t find the grocery store, and when I asked for directions the police instead drove us all the way to the store. Thanks to him we made it before it closed and got to cook in our cabin. I swear this trip we constantly kept getting turned around without our GPS, but we ended up finding really beautiful spots that made it worth it. We took the road to nowhere and it was absolutely gorgeous!

Protip: Download all the GPS maps on your phone before hand (no data signal), once we did that my phone worked so much better.

Hilton Head 2015

Hilton Head 2015

This past summer, Adams parents invited us on a trip to Hilton Head Island. It was the first time Stefanie had ever visited Hilton Head. Since it was after Jasmine had passed away, we weren’t feeling 100% ourselves, but did our best to enjoy it. We ended up riding bikes on the beach, going swimming in the hotel heated pool and lots of bird watching.

We got to visit Pinckney Island and Adams parents joined us. There were so many birds in the park, I didn’t want to leave! It was apparently breeding season. Several fledglings could be seen, some still in their nests. I kept practicing taking photos and even lucked out and got some nice shots!
