Last year at the FARA Energy Ball we won tickets to Discovery Cove, Georgia Aquarium, Stone Mountain and the Coke Museum in the auction! We decided to add a few extra days this year to our Atlanta Swing Away at FA trip and use our tickets. On October 23rd we started our 8 hour trek to Atlanta.
First stop was the Georgia Aquarium! What a great aquarium....and the boys loved seeing the whale shark! Next stop, the Coca Cola Museum. This was actually much cooler than any of us thought it would be. Of course, the boys had to try EVERY type of coke there was! It was a great day, full of fun stops, but now we were on to Aunt Lori & Uncle Brian's house for the night.
The next morning was Swing Away day. This is one of our favorite events and we get to see some of our favorite FA families. This event is on the most incredible piece of property and truly is a wonderful day.
Since it was Evan's Birthday a few days later, we took him out to celebrate! We went to Kani House, where Evan got the star treatment:) He loved them cooking in front of him and singing to him.
The best part of Georgia are the pumpkin patches and fruit stands....at least that's my favorite part. On Sunday we drove over to Burt's Pumpkin Farm to pick out our gigantic pumpkin. They are bigger than any pumpkins we'd ever seen. The boys were pushed around the patch in wheel barrows, they loved it.
We had a wonderful time in Atlanta, spending a few days with family and with our FAmily. We look forward to it again next year!
