We are home! :)



How was vacation? Glad you asked! It was an ADVENTURE to say the least! We left Savannah at 6:00am Monday morning and flew into Atlanta. The connecting flight was full. So was the next one. And the next one. And the next one. So....we consulted with a friendly helpful Delta agent who told us that there were people in the airport that had been trying to get out of Atlanta since FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that???? So what does our family do when we are handed a bunch of lemons??????

We made lemonade!!!!

That's right! We spent our spring break vacation right in the middle of downtown Atlanta! We got a hotel at the airport, bought passes for unlimited rides on the MARTA transportation service, and settled in. We got the City Pass to go to some great places. If you have never gotten a City Pass, go to www.citypass.com and check it out! For one great low price you get admission to six area attractions, and in some cases, such as when we went to San Fransisco, city transportation is included. The great bonus is that you get head-of-the-line priveledges, which was FAB in cases like the San Fran Museum of Modern Art, where the admission line was over 2 BLOCKS long. We zipped right by like some VIPs and went right on in! SO, we went to......

Zoo Atlanta, GA Aquarium, The NEW World of Coca Cola, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Underground Atlanta, Hard Rock Cafe, Lenox square (some ooo la la shopping!!!) and of course, my fave scrapbook shop, Scrap Chic Boutique, in Decatur.

It was so wonderful! Although unplanned, it turned out to be a great vacation. Marissa really enjoyed the trip, and we did too. It's good to be home, but we had a BLAST!

Hey Sis, glad you are back and had a fabulous trip, even though it changed drastically. Sounds like you had fun. I know Marissa enjoyed the Zoo and she said on the phone her fav was the Aquarium. The pics are cute, need to see one with "Mom" in them also. Marissa looks happy and I really like the shirt she has on in the last picture. :-) Welcome home..............

Looks like a GREAT time...and honestly as long as you've got the hubster and kiddo by your side, anything would do, right? :)

(Now that you've gotten your obligatory 'family' vacation over, when do you go on your scrap retreat?)
