We're going. Unfortunatley, Brendan won't be with us. As for fanfest, I hope we have one this year. I've been looking forward to taking Brendan since we found out Chandra was pregnant.

Lauren, i talked to a guy that works at the stadium. He said that they would do something for Fan Fest they're just finalizing some details, but the Braves should announce it soon.

Thanks for asking, Crista! I hope they do...something... :) I forgot to ask until we were on the way back to the parking lot. :(

I forgot to mention -- I was on the 1:00 tour. Anyone else on that one?
