Vacation - Day 5 & 6

Day 5 (Friday) was not very eventful as it rained all day.  We tried to go to the aquarium, but the lines were too long so we switched up our plans and relaxed for most of the day at Ms. Kim's.  We did travel to Dacula, Georgia for dinner and to visit our cousin Tommy and his family.  We were introduced to Alex and Avery for the first time, and spent hours playing checkers with them.  We were pretty bummed when we had to leave, but I guess the fact that we passed out upon leaving their driveway was a pretty good indication that we were tired and ready for bed. 

This morning we woke up refreshed and ready to go.  Titi Nery and Uncle Choo-Choo stopped by to say good-bye as they were leaving to make the trek back to Illinois.  Then we headed out to give the aquarium one more shot, and this time we were successful.  We thought this visit would be a quick one since we were just here seven months ago, but I guess we were mistaken.  Nearly 3 1/2 hours later we exited through the gift shop, where we of course scored a few new treasures.  We loved the whale sharks, belugas, and manta rays as much, if not more, than the first time we saw them.  After the aquarium we walked through Centennial Park to the SkyView ferris wheel.  We took a ride on the giant ferris wheel going almost 20 stories up.  We unfortunately couldn't see very far due to the fog and rain, but it was still pretty cool being that high up and seeing the teeny tiny world below.  All the fun made us pretty hungry so we grabbed a bite to eat at Yeah! Burger (Daddy's favorite burger joint), and then headed out to Serenbe, a community just outside Atlanta, to check out some homes and grab a treat at a yummy bakery Ms. Kim told us about.  It was another busy day for us, but we love the adventures here in our world!
