Braves Spring Training Trip {Part 1}

For the past 4 years now, my family has gone to Orlando for a Braves Spring Training weekend and had a blast.  It is always one of our favorite weekend getaways and just so much fun.  They pack in so much to this weekend and it is always a busy schedule, but worth it for the amazing experience and this year was no different.

We flew out first thing on Friday morning and arrived in sunny Florida with most of the day still ahead of us.  

After dropping our bags at the hotel and doing a quick wardrobe change (yea for shorts weather!!!), we were off to the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

We love going to the Masters each year and although I don't really follow golf, I always love being outdoors on the beautiful courses, people watching, and seeing some of the big names.  We thought the kids would enjoy their first golf tournament on a little smaller scale and they did...for about 20 minutes.  

And it was then that we quickly realized why we have never taken them to the Masters.

My little guy said the hardest part was staying behind the rope. I can see what he meant though...all of that lush green grass just makes you want to go run around on it.  Blondie just wanted to sit down and Little Mama was entertained for a while, but then bored.  We decided they would have more fun playing golf than watching it, but it was a beautiful day and it was something fun and different for us to do.

We did a little shopping in the pro shop, let them try putting at one of the vendor tents and then stuck around to watch Tiger Woods come through and then decided to head back to the hotel to rest before the evening's welcome party.  

This little guy was just done and passed out as soon as we got in the car.  He stayed that way while we were waiting on our room and it was just the power nap he needed.

After a quick little rest for all of us, we got changed and ready for the welcome party.  I was excited to wear my new dress for the occasion.  I picked this up a few weeks ago and knew it would be perfect for cool spring nights with a denim jacket and into summer by itself.  (It's on sale for less than $25 right now...such a great deal!) 

This event is always so much fun and the Braves do a great job making it a great night for parents and kids.  The decorations are so fitting to the theme of the weekend and the food is amazing (hello lobster tails and funnel cake fries with chocolate sauce). 

There are a ton of activities and games for the kids like a balloon artist, charicature artists, photo booths and an amazing DJ that gets them all up and having a good time.  

After having about all the fun we could handle for one day, we called it a night and got some sleep so we would be ready for another fun-filled day!
