Our weekend, part I

Well, as you know, we spent the majority of the holiday weekend in Atlanta. We had a wonderful time, even though I was pretty sick through parts of it (it honestly could have been worse, though. Thank goodness for zofran!)

Saturday morning, we got an early start (which is not hard to do with our children) and arrived at the Bicentennial park around 11. We walked around, had lunch at the fountain (yes, we packed a picnic) and found a really neat playground for the kids. The adults joked that we could make this trip very inexpensive if the kids were this happy with just a picnic lunch at the fountain and a playground.

After we hit the playground, we decided to check out the Coca cola area. We wanted to do the tour. However, there was a 30 minute wait just to get in, then the tour was 1.5 hours. It was already 2 pm and we didn't think it wise to push our luck. They were behaving beautifully at that moment in time, but who knew what 2 hours would bring. Instead, we played in the field for a bit and let the kids dance to the music.

After that fun, we headed to the hotel to have some quiet time. Which ended up not being very quiet for the kids... Oh well. We rounded up our first day with some quality time at Ikea. Every girls dream.
Stay tuned for more pictures tomorrow! I don't have the energy to figure out the silly way blogger uploads pictures. Its fine for one round, but two is another story. lol.
