For several years I have intended to take my children to watch the Atlanta Falcons training camp. The Falcon's training facility is pretty close to our home and watching training camp is FREE, (free is always good!), but every year I seem to miss it; NOT this year!!! Luckily for me, my good friend ( ), mentioned at dinner Tuesday night, that she had taken her crew that day and they had a great time. So today I loaded up my 3, bright and early, and we headed to training camp!
We got there before practice started. Fortunately, it was below 90 degrees this morning.
My boys were just in heaven - though DD is a pretty big football fan, herself. Oh, and we got lots of freebies like minature footballs, lanyards, golf (???) towels, etc.
It was was bit cooler than it has been and there was a light breeze but these guys definately got a workout.
We received lots and lots of autographs afterwards as the players walked around the field spending time with their fans. As a parent, I really appreciate the time that these players spent visiting and just being all around good sports - it was so nice to see - especially after last years not so great Falcons publicity year!
It was fun and I just can't wait for football season to start!


  1. Last year we went to the Carolina Panthers training camp. I agree, it's so much fun. However, when we went it was a lovely near-100 morning (they were even knocking off early!). We love football around here. Fall- football, falling leaves, back to school- my favorite season.

  2. Football time is almost here, kinda bitter sweet...Love summer hate to see it end, but love football too. Hope you have a great weekend. Nancy

  3. That looks like so much fun. We don't live close enough to do something like that in a day.
    Glad it wasn't too hot.

  4. Yes, free is always a good thing. Sounds like a fun day.

  5. It couldn't possibly be time for football! Where did the summer go?

    Your boys must have been in heaven watching the pros practice. It's nice that they give away things and that the guys take time to talk to the fans.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
