Atlanta Trip

Since Ryan and Hunter didn't get to go to Arizona with us in August and we just took Hailey and Andrew, we decided to take the two older ones on a little overnight trip to Atlanta.  We left at 5 a.m. (yawn!) on Sunday morning and started on our adventure!  We had such a great time!  

I was so excited because we got to go to Dr. Charles Stanley's church for his 9 a.m. service.  What was crazy is I literally used to live right across the street from his church, but of course I didn't know that until Sunday when we got there.  I wasn't saved then any way so I wouldn't have even known who he was probably, but either way it was a little strange.  We enjoyed his services and even though it is a mega church, the people there were very friendly.  

We also got to stay in the Westin Peachtree Plaza, which is also where we had our honeymoon, but this time we did not get upgraded for free to the Presidential Suite!  Our room was still very nice though and it was sweet to be able to stay there again.  It brought back many memories!

After church, we went to The Varsity!!! Nothing better than a chili cheese dog and onion rings from this famous establishment!  The boys enjoyed it and Hunter was asking if we could go back before we had even left!  

 Then we went to Dr. Martin Luther King's museum, birth home, and church.

Here's the view from our hotel room

And from the top of the Westin at the Sundial.  Hunter actually rode the outdoor elevator up to the top and wasn't scared!  We took them for dessert at the Sundial.  They loved it because the restaurant revolves.  :)

The pool at the hotel, but we couldn't go swimming because the heater was broken.

Yesterday, we took them to the GA Aquarium, which is the best and largest aquarium in the world!  We love it there!  They also had a good Mommy and Me deal so the boys got in for free with my ticket.
