Our Atlanta Trip

Well, we made it back to Tucson in one piece! The trip out there was great. We left Thursday mid day to head up to Phoenix. We decided to go up a day earlier than our flight to have some extra time together. We saw Batman at the IMAX theater, ate at Cafe Rio', and spent the night in a motel room (not my favorite part.) We stayed in a super 8 to save money and as soon as we saw the room I wished I had just spent the money for a nice hotel room. But it was just one night and we were up at 7:00 and out the door by 8:00 am to catch our 10:45 flight to Atlanta. It was a direct flight, which was so nice and we arrived in Atlanta at 5:45 pm (there is a three hour time difference.) We met Matthew's clients at the airport and headed back to our hotel to freshen up. We stayed at the Glenn hotel, a very swanky place, and I was SO happy with the room. A great improvement over the Super 8! We had dinner at a great Italian Restaurant and spent about three hours there talking with Matthew's clients and getting to know one another. Most of the weekend was spent working and eating and hanging out with Robin and Meaghan (the clients) and on Saturday Matthew and I took a break and went to the Georgia Aquarium. It was really cool. We were sad when Sunday came and we had to go home. I didn't think I would, but I fell in love with Georgia and didn't want to go. Our flight home was quite and adventure. We got there an hour before our flight, only to find out we had a FOUR delay and didn't even get on the plane til 10:45 pm! We got back to Phoenix and had another TWO hour drive back to Tucson. We finally got in bed at 3:00 am...but with the time change we had been up all night. Needless to say, we were dragging on Monday! Here are some pictures from our trip!

The Boluga Whale. They are all white and very beautiful. They look a lot like dolphins.
Not the best picture of me, but we were in the room where the ceiling is glass and fish and SHARKS swim overhead!
Me and Matthew in front of the GIANT glass at the end of the Aquarium that shows all sorts of fish and sharks and sting rays, ect. swimming around. It was really spectacular.
Aren't these beautiful? They were even more impressive in person.
Matthew watching TV in our hotel room. It was a HUGE plasma TV, and our bed was a California king with fancy sheets and down comforters...THANKS Robin and Meaghan, we LOVED our hotel room!

Aaaahhhh...vacation! Someone once told me that if your kids come, it's a trip. If your kids stay home, it's vacation! I'm glad you got to go on a little getaway before the baby comes! That aquarium looked amazing!
