Photo Friday!

We have been busy preparing for our trip…wrapping presents, picking up last minute travel things, charging batteries up, and checking the passports…900 times! The pictures I have included for Photo Friday, hosted by Delicious Baby, are from one of our Atlanta trips. Check out Delicious Baby to see great pictures from other travelers!

We went to the Georgia Aquarium while we were there. The Georgia Aquarium has some amazing exhibits. My son especially liked the whale sharks thanks to Go Diego Go! Unfortunately, the aquarium setup leaves a bit to be desired. You explore the exhibits off of a main room and it is sometimes difficult to get back to the main room due to the crowds. It is well worth the trip, but I recommend you make it on a weekday in the afternoon. In doing this, you will avoid the massive weekend crowds and the school trips. We waited and waited, but were glad we did! We also saw my mom’s family friend, Garrett Atkins (Go Rockies!!!), beat the Braves.


The famous whale sharks!
Go Garrett!

    I love the jellyfish picture!

    Have a great trip. Got the passports ready? 😉

    My mom (the original adventuring matriarch in this family tree) went scuba diving with those whale sharks about two weeks ago. It was a “what to get the guy who has everything” gift to her husband…

    Apparently it’s crazy cold.

    Not to mention, just plain crazy!

    If you ever make it out to California, I highly recommend the Monterey Bay Aquarium. They also have jellyfish, and it is one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. Oh, and the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is also great. And now, clearly, the Georgia is on my list of places to go one day. Ciao!

    Fun photos! I always find aquariums fascinating.

    …I always have a tough time leaving comments at sites that don’t allow us to choose an identity that allows us to easily link back to our own sites. The “OpenID” option never works for me…it’s probably me, though 😛

    Gorgeous jelly fish. I never tire of watching them. The sushi bar in Bellagio (Las Vegas) has them behind the bar making that one of my favorite spots to stop for a meal.

    Good luck getting ready!
