Atlanta Aquarium pt. 2 & other stuff…

Before I get to the rest of the aquarium pictures I want to show off the new bows I just made for Hailey.  I’m so glad Amber taught me how to do this :)

This one was for Patriot Day!

Getting to feel the sting rays. Hailey was all about it, but Jack….you guessed it: Not so much!

This picture was taken right before we all looked away from her and she picked up a sea urchin!! You are NOT supposed to pick them up! ONLY two finger touch! We quickly got out of there :)

I think he liked her too!IMG_5465

Now she’s playing with him :) See it’s little smile?!?!IMG_5466 We hit the jelly fish tank one more time before leaving…. see what she picked out from the gift shop!IMG_5486 After leaving we hung out next to the World of Coke and got a little refreshments.IMG_5496 IMG_5497 Because the bottles were glass I kept telling them to stay on the grass!IMG_5500 IMG_5502 We wanted the get the most of our day in Atlanta so we started walking……IMG_5504 IMG_5505 IMG_5507 The Olympic Rings fountain was a HUGE hit!! We told them the idea was to NOT get wet (didn’t have any other clothes). Next time we’ll be more prepared so they can just go for it!!IMG_5509 IMG_5512 IMG_5518 Off to the CNN Center.IMG_5525 IMG_5530

The kids were so excited to see this inside CNN Center :)IMG_5533

We walked to dinner at Johnny Rockets.  It was such a cool little diner. IMG_5549

They gave everyone a nickel to play the little jukeboxes.  And check out the straw dispensers….big hit with my two!IMG_5539

The cooks and waiters got down and boogied for us!!IMG_5546

I think this picture pretty much sums up our day!!!!IMG_5537

love the hair bows and burp cloth!

looks like y'all had a great trip to Atlanta!

We're wanting to get by the aquarium at some point...we tried last summer, but we didn't purchase tickets ahead and time and were going to have to wait 3 hours before we could go in.

Hi, Stacia! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I had a great trip to Valdosta and fell in love with the Forrest Park Church! It was such a wonderful day. Tomorrow I'm posting pictures of some of the tables the ladies decorated for afternoon tea. Wow! They put so much love into the day. I know you have lots of special friends there!

And P.S., love the hairbows!
