Our good friends the B's came to visit us for 8 days in the middle of August. It was so good to see them and have our kids play. Good stuff. We wore a path between our house and the pool, ate at the local hot spots, drank lots of sweet tea, had way too much Bruster's Homemade Ice Cream, and had a lake day too. But toward the end of the trip it was supposed to rain for a couple days. We decided that 6 kids in the house for a couple days wouldn't be much fun and Kevin had taken a couple days off of work so we decided to head somewhere fun for a night. We looked at Myrtle Beach but it was, of course, going to rain there too. We settled on Downtown Atlanta. All the things we wanted to try there were indoors so rain wouldn't matter. We booked a hotel and left the next morning.
And we're off!
One of our favorite landmarks is this giant peach water tower in South Carolina because we think it looks like a hiney. Yep, we are mature. Makes the kids laugh for miles.
Kevin had his first Del Taco since we moved 5 years ago. Yuck! I had to make a pit stop about 20 minutes later. Made me sick and glad we moved far away from Del Taco, which I never liked anyway.
Then we split into a boy car and a girl car. Girls went to the American Girl Store and the boys went to World of Coca-Cola.
3 girls and their dolls.
So cute! We didn't eat at the Bistro, but we checked it out. :)
Each girl got to pick an outfit for their doll and a t-shirt for themselves. It was a tough choice!
We took this picture the next day since the boys didn't take any on their special trip to World of Coke. Julian and Tate loved drinking soda from the bottle!
We ended up going to Hard Rock for dinner, which was fun.
Tate in music heaven!
G trying to look like one waiter who was wearing really dark sunglasses in the already dark restaurant.
Night swim at the hotel pool on the roof and then off to bed!
A great buffet breakfast was included in our hotel package. We were at the Hilton and purchased the "Aquarium Package." It was a great deal and we had adjoining rooms so that was fun!
Then we were off to the Georgia Aquarium. We spent a few hours checking out all the sea life. So neat. It is a really nice aquarium and we all loved it.
How cute are these buddies?
Then Corner Bakery for lunch!
Back up the hill to the hotel and we drove back home.
A quick, but fun filled trip!
