Hello Georgia!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I think we are getting pretty good at packing up all of our stuff, it's getting faster and faster every time we pack up. We left Louisiana by way of a long lake bridge called the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. The bridge is almost 24 miles long said to be the fifth longest bridge in the world. It's a long drive especially if you need to use the restroom, luckily neither of us had to, whew :).

Georgia is beautiful, it is so green and the flowers are already starting to come in. We lucked out and got a really good deal on the house we are renting. We are in Eatonton, Georgia and it's about an hour drive from Atlanta. The house we rented is right on a lake, it is beautiful, talk about having a vacation with in a vacation. The Lord has blessed in helping us find places to stay.

Our first weekend we were able to visit three big attractions in Atlanta. The three attractions were The World of Coke, Atlanta Aquarium and CNN. We first went to CNN. The CNN building was huge and it had its own food court. We were able to see many of the news rooms and a live broadcast. It was a fun experience, and Aaron even got to see the king (Larry King).

After we got our news fix for the day, we headed over to see the Aquarium. It is supposably the biggest in the world or maybe one of the tanks is the biggest in the world, I'm not entirely sure. The funnest part of the aquarium was the tunnel tank and being able to walk through it. I've wanted to go through a see through tank for a little while now.

Save the best for last, or at least the sweetest. For our final destination, we headed through the world of Coca Cola. It was fun to see the history of the drink and see how it is bottled. We also got to end the day being able to sample over 60 varieties of drinks Coca Cola currently creates from a variety of countries. Needless to say, we didn't feel the greatest after trying to many drinks, but it was still a fun way to end our day.
