We have had a great Labor Day weekend. It's been so nice to have an extra day to rest and relax. Last week was just crazy at school so I needed today to feel refreshed and renewed. We started the weekend off by coming home on Friday and cleaning up the house because my mom was coming to visit! She drove here after school on Friday and we are ALL happy to see her!
We just hung out at home Friday night since it was dark when she arrived. On Saturday morning, she and Easton curled up with a book. He was SO excited that she was here!
Later that morning we got dressed and decided to head to downtown Atlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium. My mom had been wanting to go since she hasn't been and I've told her how amazing it. What we didn't know is that Alabama and Virginia Tech were playing at the Georgia Dome and there was a comic book convention. Downtown Atlanta was CRAZY. It took us almost an hour to find parking and maneuver around town. CRAZY! We finally made it to the aquarium and had a GREAT time!
These fish are on both sides of the area where you show your ticket. They are so mesmerizing!
The first thing we did was have lunch at the Café Aquaria. We were lucky enough to find a table!
After that we spent the next couple of hours touring the aquarium.
After the aquarium, we stopped at the Dollar Tree and Pet Smart for a few items. We enjoyed the rest of the night at home because we were tired from our big day!
On Sunday we went to church. I was so happy that my mom could come with us because we LOVE our church. She loved it too and loved the contemporary service. Afterwards, she treated us to Ruby Tuesday's for my upcoming birthday!
We also spent a couple of hours shopping and she let me pick out a few items for my birthday! Later we cheered on the VOLS during their first football game!
We had a GREAT visit with her and always love when she is here!
