Georgia on My Mind

Our family took a little five-day vacation to Atlanta last week. Actually, it was a work trip for Andy (he was presenting at an Army Corps of Engineers conference), but playtime for the kids and me. Atlanta is one of those places you visit once and you're good. It's a wonky city, but it has lots of fun attractions. The kids and I (and some friends) went to the Atlanta Children's Museum, awesome parks and the pool. Then, on Friday, Andy's conference ended early so our little family planned a visit to the Georgia Aquarium. It's the largest aquarium in the world and certainly didn't disappoint. My only complaint is that it was ridiculously busy, which is to be expected, it just didn't make it any easier for this super-pregnant lady to get around without getting bonked in the belly.

I could try to explain this aquarium to you, but I wouldn't do it justice. I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. 

As I said before, our friends were at the same conference, so we got to hang out with them all week. Plus, we swapped babysitting so the grown-ups would have a chance to attend the Atlanta Temple. Andy and I haven't been to the temple together since we lived in Utah (over a year ago), so this was an extra-special trip for us.

This was our last major hurrah as a family of four. It's hard to believe, but on our next vacation, our backseat will be filled to capacity with kids!

That aquarium is amazing!!! Glad you got to go on a family trip! How fun to have another couple with you to swap babysitting & attend the temple.
Wait till your back seat is full & the baby gets older-than then the real fighting begins. Haha- seriously though.
