Last weekend, Henry got the chance to go on the field before the Atlanta Braves game as part of Scout Night. It was also like Little League night and some other something night. There were a TON of kids in line to walk the field.
We had no idea what to expect, but we got him all uniformed up and headed that way. My mom and dad (Rock) came with us. The plan was for Rock, an Eagle Scout, to walk the field with him. We even gave my dad an early birthday present — a red Scout shirt.
Here’s my little guy when we got in the stadium.
He proceeded to be extremely goofy.
We got to see some little band that came marching in. I’m not sure if this is the official Braves band or what, but they were good.
We waited in line for what seemed like forever. It was like an hour but thankfully we got there when we did because there were a ton of people behind us.
Then we went through the tunnel. It was pretty cool, I’ve gotta say!
Here’s my Eagle and Bobcat scouts.
Henry and I pretended to storm the field. They were SO serious about you not getting close to the grass.
At home plate.
Making the walk. I don’t think he let Rock’s hand go the whole time.
These guys were awesome. I’m not sure who they were, maybe coaches or something? They just stood there and waved and smiled at all the boys that came by. It was kinda cool.
Once we made our way, in the heat, up the elevator to the tippy top of the stadium, we ate. And watched. And danced. And cheered.
We all had a great time!
And I think it’s something Rock and Henry will remember for a long time. I’m proud of my Eagle Scout and my Bobcat Scout.
ps: The Braves lost.
pps: I was disappointed there was no halftime show.
ppps: I know nothing about baseball and plan to keep it that way.
pppps: I ran into a dear friend seconds after texting her to see where she was. Seriously, like hit send and THERE SHE WAS. Freaky. ((waves at Liz))
ppppps: The End.
