Secret Life of Pets on Atlanta & Company

secretlifeofpetslogo copyI’ve been waiting for this movie to open since I saw the trailer during the Superbowl!  What is your dog up to when you leave? Your pets aren’t really sitting by the door waiting on your return as I found out with Lucy.  I placed a GoPro Hero 4 Session camera on a GoPro “Fetch” harness and discovered she’s having a lot of fun!

Atlanta Braves Suntrust Club seats experience


I’ve grown up in Atlanta and remember the days of my father giving me dugout seats (with parking pass!) to attend Atlanta Braves games.  Now the season is winding down at Turner Field and I finally got the opportunity to sit in the amazing Sun Trust seats located behind home plate.  Everyone involved created a memorable, exciting and fun experience from security to the staff.  This night was a home run!

Here’s another homerun!
