Atlanta Trip, Part 3: Imagine It.

We finished off our trip by going to Imagine It, the children's museum. It was my favorite part of the trip. We had so much fun.

Lily really liked this big banana slid. She probably went down it 25 times. Here she is with Daddy peaking out!

Love it!

We shopped and played store for a good while as well. Lily was very serious about it.

Not letting anything slip by her...

The indignant shop keeper

She bought chocolate frosting, grapefruit, a banana, tuna fish, honey, and 2 asparagus.

Can you believe the price of groceries today?!? Ridiculous!

Playing on the forklift. It really had a thing that went up and down.

Fishing in the "river"

She was concentrating to catch those fish.

Climbing up the cargo net into the tree house.

She thought it was so funny that she was higher than us.

The artist at work. This whole wall was like a dry erase board. Kids would paint the whole thing and then a man came along and rinsed the whole thing off.

Atlanta Trip, Part 2: Georgia Aquarium and Hard Rock Cafe

We went to the Georgia Aquarium first. There were so many people there that you couldn't really get close to see alot of stuff there. I think we picked a bad time of the year to visit. There were some really neat things to see there. Lily just got overwhelmed by all of the people. So did her momma.

The Baluga whale was probably one of the best things there. It made me want to go to sleep watching it swim around. We got a little stuffed one to take home. Lily says it's her baby baluga whale. Not baby whale, not baby baluga, not baluga whale. Baby baluga whale.

This room had this huge wall of fish to watch. There was several rows of seats where you could sit and watch. It was neat. This is a whale shark. Josh took pictures because I carried Lily most of the time. We didn't want her to get squashed. He's not a great photographer.

For dinner we went to the Hard Rock Cafe, because it was next door to our hotel. I'm not usually a big fan of the touristy restaraunts like this, but it was very good. We got free ice cream sundaes because of a little timing problem with my food, but it was no big deal, so that was nice. The service was great.

Lily really liked it!

Our Atlanta Trip, Part One

I'm pretty sure that Lily's favorite part of our trip was the elevator in the hotel. We were on the 21st floor and they had the glass elevators. She tried to run in as soon as the doors opened so she could look out. It was so cute.
Looking out the elevator. She also insisted on carrying her own bag.

She wouldn't even slow down so I could take her picture. She was so excited!

Checking out the balcony with daddy. It made me nauseous to look.

4 Years Old!

I don't know how we let this happen...Lily is 4. It really doesn't seem like that long. For her birthday we had cake and ice cream for the family. We decided to skip a birthday party and go on a trip instead. We went to Atlanta for the weekend and had a great time. Stay tuned for those pics!

Lily's fairy birthday cake

Tegan wanted to help Lily try out her new stuff.

She racked up. She got a baseball glove, roller skates, a fix-my-hair my Little Pony, some clothes, suitcase for her trip, a picnic basket,
a bike...

I didn't get any good pictures of Lily, but this one of Tegan is too cute not to share. She loved some chocolate cake!
