Trip to Atlanta

Last weekend we headed down to hotlanta for a short little getaway and as a reward to Wyatt for such a great year of school.

After checking into the hotel, which btw is a reward in itself for the kids, they just love staying at hotels, we headed to dinner. Then we were off to the favorite stop for all little girls in Atlanta-AMERICAN GIRL! Abby loved the "doll store" as she called it. Let me tell ya a person can go broke fast in that place. She had her own money to spend and picked matching shirts for her and her doll and then got a movie. Then it was off to the destination of all boys-LEGOS!! I though his head would explode when he saw the life sized Darth Vader:) he also had his own money and would have bought the entire place out had he had enough money.

We headed back to the hotel and ate our big ol hunks of cheesecake from dinner. The next morning we headed to the World of Coca Cola it was alot of fun, they had a great 4-D movie, I was seriously about to pee my pants laughing at Abby trying to grab the stuff that was flying at her face. At the end of the tour you can taste something like 64 different coke products from around the world and let me tell ya some of them are FUNKY! Only after a few Abby threw in the towel and said her belly hurt and she couldn't taste any more:)

Then afterwards we were on to the main reason for our trip.

The kids and I had never been to a MLB game before, so we were super excited to get there. We got our yummy ballpark food and headed to our seats. We were very excited to see the sun coming out cause it had been sprinkling rain just a bit, but we were every more excited to see our seats were about 4 rows into the shade of the deck above us, so while everyone below us sat in the scorching Atlanta heat we felt great:) The Braves won and we even got to see Chipper Jones get up to pinch hit and he ended up driving in the winning run so he got Player of the Game.

It was a great trip and we all had a great time and can't wait to do it again.

Sounds like you all had a fun-filled trip to Atlanta. :) The Coca-Cola museum sounds awesome! As for the American Girl store, I'd steer clear for fear of going broke. lol
Thanks so much for commenting on my guest post over at Seven Clown Circus. Have a great day.
