I love being able to take the kids "home" to GA. Even though it is not their home, it is where Chris and I called home for so many years. They are getting to the ages now (at least Luke and Hayley) where they love listen to stories from our childhood . They want to see the schools we went to and where Chris played soccer, where I took dance, and where we met and fell in love (insert both kids going awwwww and then yuck). Ahhhh....memory lane.
I love taking them to some of the spots that I remember so well as a kid.
Such as, The Varsity
Trust me. It is an Atlanta MUST.
"Whatta ya have? Whatta ya have?"
Such a fun experience and a little nerve wrecking if someone shouting at you while your trying to decide what you want to order isn't your thing.
Here are some pics from the kiddos first time at The Varsity
The next spot we took them to in Atlanta hasn't been around that long. In fact I think it opened in 2006.
The Georgia Aquarium
We actually took Luke and Hayley when they were 2 and 8 months old, but neither one of them remembered the trip. So this was kind of like our first time going. It was Chris and Hannah's first time. So it counts. They recently opened an indoor dolphin water show that was outstanding! My favorite was the Beluga Whales. I couldn't stop singing "Oh Ba-by Beluga" the entire time.
We all had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back again.
I love that I snapped this shot of Hannah. She is signing "fish". Yes, lots and lots of FISH!
