Last week Lane was at a work conference in Atlanta for 4 days and I was able to join him the last 2. We had such a good time and I'm so thankful I got to go. For a while there I was thinking it wasn't meant to be. The night before I left, we had a huge storm and lost power. I had to take a shower and get ready in the dark. No blow drying my hair, so you can imagine how bad I looked. My phone was low on battery since it wasn't able to charge. I finally make it to the airport without any issues. But after we had all boarded the flight attendant makes an announcement that a mechanic is working on one of the engines so we will be delayed. So many things going through my mind like-is this the end for me? Can I get off the plane? Lots of praying went on throughout that entire flight. Luckily I made it to Atlanta safely. I took the rail to the hotel and was so happy when I finally saw Lane. I told him I was pretty proud of myself for making the whole trip solo and not getting lost or having to turn around. When all was said and done I drove myself to the airport, parked in the express parking, did the whole airport thing, found the train and walked about a block to my hotel...all without having to call him for help. He said he would be proud of me if I were 12. I can see we have very different expectations.
Anyway, we had lots of fun. We went to dinner the first night, and to the aquarium and Braves game the second night. I think the aquarium is world renown. They had a dolphin show and lots of different exhibits. It was really cool. The Braves game was very exciting as well. The lead kept changing and we had a grand slam towards the end. We embraced the "chop" and had a great time. I'm so glad Lane and I were able to spend some quality time together and not feel like we had to rush anywhere. Oh and we slept in til 9am 1 day. That made the whole trip worth it!
We were on the 29th floor & had a great view.

You can't see us but check out the Beluga!
Whale Shark & sting rays
My favorite shot. The colors are so vibrant.
Hard to capture the chop
This old attendant was too funny. He's dancing here.
