But this past Sunday, our small group was canceled last minute, so we decided to
Tally: "The afternoon is working out just the way I planned."
And then the craziest thing happened. I met a lady in the bathroom by the playground (yes, you read that right) who was randomly checking her newsfeed on Facebook and asked, "Was Bark in the Park today?"
Bark in the Park is an event that Turner Field (where the Braves play) puts on twice a year where fans can bring their pups to the game.
So I proceeded to tell her that my husband and I had tried to get tickets and didn't realize how quickly it sold out. So then SHE proceeds to me ME that her friend on Facebook, has two extra human tickets and a canine ticket that he can't use BECAUSE HE'S AT PIEDMONT PARK AT A BDAY PARTY FOR HIS DAUGHTER.
So I asked the girl if she would mind asking him if he still had them available, and sure enough, he did. So she gave him my email address and he emailed us the tickets for free right then and there!
And off we went.
Well, sort of...
...Tally decided walking in the heat was an unbearable task and gave up 2 minutes before we reached our car.
So Matt left the two of us and went and got the car so that our 75 lb dog who can no longer be carried could have curb-side pick-up.
...And off we went for the game!
The Braves went into extra innings and won in the 10th! And we made it back to car literally seconds before the downpour hit. We closed our car doors and the skies opened up.
It was comical how much everything, even the weather, just came together that day.
So thanks to that sweet lady in the bathroom at Piedmont Park, to the man who was nice enough to email us his tickets for free (no negotiating required this time friends), and to Facebook for making it all possible. ;)
