All American

It has been a long time since Brian and I did any real celebrating of Independence Day. We either have not been in the same city, or just end up driving around watching other's fireworks. But this year we went for the all American approach: Baseball and fireworks. We got some Braves t-shirts, got hot dogs, did the "Everybody clap your hands" cheer, and of course the"Tomahawk Chop!" We are official Braves fans.

It was actually really fun. Baseball is much more interesting when you get to see it live. I still think it is a little boring on TV, but at least I know some of their names now. My favorite part was of course when someone hit a home run, but my second favorite part was watching them line the field. They are so precise, and they do some of it by hand!

Afterwards they had an all American fireworks show sorta coordinated with some all American music. And all I can say is: I am proud to be an American, because at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, and gave their life for me. And I'll proudly stand up next to you and defend her still today, there ain't no doubt, I love this land.

Brian loves that song. ;-) I actually do like it, and sang my heart out along with the rest of crowd! I however didn't sing along with the other country songs they played.

Braves shirt = Braves fan
It is my first pro sports team shirt, maybe if Brian would have got me one sooner I would have been more willing to watch more sports on tv, but maybe not.

This is the biggest flag I've ever seen!

Didn't they do a good job lining the field?? It is so precise!
