Gorgeous graffiti, amazing aquarium, and a foodie paradise – we spent the weekend in Georgia! We tested our driving through the night so the boys could sleep. This worked out really well for a quiet ride, but man Mike and I were so exhausted at the end! But it was worth it since we got to enjoy a full 3 days down south.
Our trip was a little impromptu as we haven’t made a lot of vacation plans with several job/ministry things happen. Mike and I knew though that if we didn’t plan something – the summer would get away from us. So with some help from my handy dandy budget planning and the opportunity to visit really close friends of ours we headed out.
Our hotel was amazing! We stayed at the Marriott, which was gorgeous and super fancy. The boys were just excited to be in a hotel, so the fun began as soon as we checked in.
Our first day was spent at a family friendly spray ground in the local area, along with some good eats and time with our friends that night.
The next day we visited the Georgia Aquarium and it was definitely better than I expected. Mike holds onto his childhood dream of becoming a marine biologist when we visit wildlife haha, so we had our own personal tour guide/Snapple facts during our time.
I can finally say I’ve seen a whale shark. Buck list check!
My favorite part of the trip was being able to visit a couple of Greg Mike’s graffiti art pieces right in the city! The picture doesn’t do it justice, but I love his work. I taught about him this past year in my class, it was a privilege to make the connection for my own kids who enjoyed those lessons too.
I’m so glad we made the time to get away! I didn’t even talk about all of the food, that’s another post!
