The Kids’ Area at SunTrust Park

The Braves have worked very hard to include a fun space for our kids!  As with the rest of the ballpark, this area has been well thought out and carefully designed.  Now when your kids come to a game, they will get to enjoy so many amenities that SunTrust Park has to offer.  The Braves, in partnership with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, have come up with a fabulous kids’ zone called ‘Hope and Will’s Sandlot’. It is located behind sections 151-155!

As always, there is a Braves Kids Club membership so your kids can be a part of the team!  A premium membership is $25 (per membership) or there is a free membership option as well.  When you buy a Premium Membership, there are several really great benefits and prizes that include a Dansby Swanson jersey and much much more.  Check out all the info at Braves.com/kids.

And be on the lookout about how you can reserve your times in advance for all the fun games and activities you will see here.

In the meantime, let me show you around….

The ‘Hope and Will Climbing Tower’ is a fun climbing tower has a large Braves helmet at the top (seen below)!  I’m sure we’ll be spending a great deal of time here.

You will see here a close up of the “loading dock” for ‘Hope and Will’s Pop Flyer Zip Line’!  It looks like loads of fun!

This is ‘Hope and Will’s Pop Flyer Zip Line’.  This is the loading area where fans get strapped in and zip line down.  The building behind this is a hotel that will open in 2018.  What a great space!

This is a great view of the First Base Dash, (where you can time how fast you can run), the Pop Flier Zip Line, and Climbing Tower.  The building you see to the right of this frame is a hotel that will open in 2018!

I loved this game as a kid!  This is Hydration Station.  Players get to race by spraying water in the holes, (which raises the baseball),  to see who gets to the top first.

Kids even get their own snack and dinner spot!  I’m sure we will be spending a great deal of time here, too.

Thanks for letting me show you around the Kids’ area!  It’s going to be a really fun season!

See you there!

Go Braves!

The Shadowboxers

I love music.  Really good music.  I am a musician also but I love to be entertained by a wide variety of styles of music.  Live music is the best.  I appreciate the work that goes into it.

Through the years as my children have gotten older, they will remember music playing in the house pretty much all of the time.  Music touches the soul.

Outdoor concerts during the summer are one of my most favorite things to do.  This past summer, there was an outdoor concert series at a park in our community.  I was all in!  The Shadowboxers were scheduled to come in concert at the end of September.  My daughter looked up their music and was like, “Mom, these guys are really good!”  It doesn’t take much for me to be on board.  Did I mention, I love music?

So, we made our plans to see The Shadowboxers at this outdoor concert… Let me tell you guys…. This is what the World has been Missing!

Seriously…

These guys belted out amazing 3-part harmonies, with rich vocals, dancing around on stage, with their contagious energy.

They have a style that is unique.  A combination of pop, rock, funk, jazz, also known as soulful pop.  One thing is for sure…. it is good stuff and I am a new fan!

This was the BEST show that I have seen in a really long time!

I found out that this band formed in Atlanta and moved to Nashville last year to pursue their music.  They recently did a cover of Justin Timberlake’s Pusher Love Girl that was actually noticed by Justin Timberlake, he contacted The Shadowboxers wanting to know their story.  It wasn’t long after that J.T. was hopping up on stage for a surprise performance with The Shadowboxers at their concert.  Now, as I understand it, Justin Timberlake will be helping produce in future projects.

Since moving there, there is quite the buzz in Nashville about these guys with several big name influences.

As much as I love music, I really love these guys!  They really have something special.

So, if you are looking for an evening of fun, really great music, do yourself a favor and see The Shadowboxers in concert.

You will be glad you did.
