Good evening Braves fans!! My family and I recently returned from our annual Smith family fun-filled adventure to The House of Mouse for a week of Braves Spring Training. I seldom go anywhere without my camera, so thought I'd share a few random shots that I took over the week. It's my hobby and baseball is my entire family's passion. Hope you enjoy them. (Continued after the jump)
These shots were taken over the span of a week. We hit 5 games in 8 days, including one minor league game against the Nationals. We got to see the Mets (3/12), the Astros (3/13), the Red Sox (3/16), the Nationals (3/17), and the Mets split squad game (3/19).One of the best highlights for us was getting to see some of the former Rome Braves players get to play in the split squad game on Saturday. Sorry I'm not better at the descriptions and the stats, it's about all I can do to keep up with the fam and take the pics. We are so ready for opening day! Go Braves!!!
(late addition) Ohhh...I was very remiss in not mentioning how AWESOME it was to meet some Braves fans from twitter over the course of the week. Everyone was really nice and it was very interesting to meet so many people from all over the country that share a common love - THE BRAVES!!! It's gonna be an awesome season!!!

If you're still here, thanks for making it this far. If you'd like to see the entire albums you can go here, or here. If you're a fan of the minor league players there are a few shots here. (Pardon the occasional family member random shot, it was too hard to take them out).
