Well our whirlwind trip to Atlanta is nearing an end. I'm exhausted. Next vacation I'm spending on a beach somewhere with someone bringing me drinks with umbrellas. and oh yeah, the kids are staying home. Great kids, but VERY hard to have a relaxing day trying to entertain a teen and a toddler. Maybe 2 is not the best age to travel. : P he was good though.

Random thoughts on Atlanta - the Aquarium is incredible. If I lived nearby I'd be there whenever I new the human traffic would be low. Very crowded though.

Stone Mountain was fun, but a little too touristy for me. My favorite part was being on top of the mountain and we found a letterbox way off behind all the regular stuff. Six hawks were flying right by the side of the mountain and with the few trees we couldnt see a soul.

There are a lot of sock stores down here. Whats with that?

I've eated more food in the past two days than i have in the past week. Sadly that could be literal. Southern food is GOOD. And there's alot of it. And it aint salad. I've already planned for some serious gym time tomorrow/next week.

Service is SLOW. No ones in any particular hurry.

Found some fun halloween letterboxes.

I didn't know they had an aquarium!

I'm so sure we didn't go to a lot of the same places... Freddy and I did hit Stone Mountain. Then while I was in Chicago and saw that Stone Mountain is the spot where the KKK had come back to life (2 times even) It's like disneyland for white supremicists. Freddy and I were clueless to most of it...

Had I know I would have directed you to a great greenhouse place that had several large koi ponds inside. They have the place decked out gayer than christmas, but it's real nice, and they have HUGE palm trees growing all indoors. It's like what Fred and I would love to have up north..

Did you go to CNN, or Coke? Or the Fox Theater where Gone with the Wind still plays 5times a day?

Yup, it's new and one of the largest in the world. A must see stop if you get back down that way. We didnt even know we were going to Atlanta til the day before so I didnt have time to prepare much in the way of stops. Just took our time wandering around and stopping when we saw something we liked. : )

We were clueless on the Stone Mtn thing as well until I looked up somethign about it that night and a ton of kkk photos popped up. : O
