a weekend in Atlanta

My brother Mark and his wife Sarah recently moved to Atlanta, and this past weekend Jamie and I went to visit them. My brothers Nathaniel and Benj came at the same time, so we had a fun family visit. The drive was only three hours! We are so excited to have some family that close!

Jamie unfortunately came down with a cold the day before we left, and then I caught it from him while we were there. We still managed to have a fun time though! We packed a lot into our long weekend.

Saturday night we went to a Braves game. It was my first professional sports game (and Jamie's too). We had a great time, even though I don't think I watched much of the actual game :)

On Sunday we went to Stone Mountain. Pretty impressive!

the kiddos' favorite part was story time with Uncle Benj
On our last full day we all went to the Georgia Aquarium. It is the world's biggest aquarium, and they had a lot of great exhibits. We also saw a dolphin show that was really neat. Jamie's cold and his funky sleep schedule caught up to him by the end of the day, so that wasn't as fun, but he really enjoyed it at first!
ready to go!

And of course we spent plenty of time just playing!
cute Abigail (I think! Though she's wearing pink so I can't be sure!)
stories with Uncle Nate
Jamie and Elena (I think) watching Joey the fish who we picked out at the pet store
racing Uncle Benj at Adriana's soccer game
Jamie LOVED that he could reach this sink by himself. I found him in here washing his hands over and over! Not a bad  game when you've got a cold...

Jamie's favorite seat in the car
cousin dinner!
cute Adriana :)
Jamie had a blast with his aunt and uncles and cousins and their toys :) I'm sure we'll be hearing about them for a long time! And happily it won't be that long before we'll get to visit again.
