Last weekend I had asked the kids to name a few places they would like to visit in the upcoming week. Elizabeth responded, “Georgia”. I thought this was kind of funny because I was already going to be there for work but agreed knowing that there is plenty to do in the Atlanta area.Â So, Carolyn and the kids flew down on Thursday evening to join me. They had a little adventure going through Milwaukee to get there and when they landed there were some pretty ugly storms approaching. It made for an interesting arrival but we got them safely to the hotel.
On Friday we went to the Atlanta Aquarium, followed by the World of Coke, and finally a CNN tour. We enjoyed all of them. The Aquarium was my favorite and of course the kids REALLY liked tasting all of the soda flavors available at the end of the Coke visit. The most disgusting flavor was from Italy – ick!!
We started Saturday with the Waffle House and went to Zoo Atlanta. This was Carolyn’s favorite visit as we watched various monkeys and gorillas. In addition, we saw elephants, zebras, and giraffes. We were only about 20% through the zoo when Carolyn took a bad step and hurt her foot. This abruptly ended our zoo tour and our trip. After picking up some crutches and getting help from the airport courtesy people we made it home safely and were able to get Carolyn settled in. Good memories for the kids and a interesting story with the foot 🙂
