It was an awesome day with a ton of fun people! Be sure to check back later this week for the full blog from the Color Run.
Here is half of our two part blog from our trip to Atlanta! These photos were taken by Sebastiane. With the two blogs, you get to see the two different points of views from Davis House Photography's two photographers. Enjoy!
Day 1 Tuesday: We had a blast and did a ton of fun things while
in Atlanta. First, we made a pit stop in Pine Mountain and visited the
Wild Animal Safari. Here we drove my little beep-beep through their drive in
"safari" portion of the zoo. Afterwards we walked the zoo and got to see a lot
of really cool animals, some of them even had babies! I had a blast here and
really enjoyed the drive in safari since it was my first time doing something like that.
Now we're back in the car and on our way to Atlanta!
Day 2 Wednesday: Our first stop was to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. This place was amazing, from the many different exhibits, to the architecture, and how could you forget the enormous dinosaur skeletons! I would highly recommend this place to any history buff.
Afterwards we stopped by Underground Atlanta and scoped out downtown. After looking for a place to stay for the night, we decided to go camping at Stone Mountain. While there we drove around the area and found all the attractions for the mountain, including the mountain itself which was massive! It was getting close to sunset so we bought our tickets for the last Skyride heading 825+ feet high to the top of the mountain. Being scared of heights, that was the longest three minutes of my life! We got to the top and my jaw dropped, it was so beautiful, you could see the whole city of Atlanta. Since we got tickets for the last ride up and down, we had until 8:30pm which only gave us about 20 minutes to take in the overwhelming view. (If you weren't in the Skyride at 8:30, you were hiking down the mountain!) Our time to go down came way too quickly. Later that night, we went to the Lasershow Spectacular that they host on the side of the mountain then headed back to our campsite for the night.
Day 3 Thursday: We started off our day by letting me drive around Atlanta...scary! And by going to Zoo Atlanta! At the zoo we saw a ton of animals, birds (a crow that recycles), reptiles, and people. After a long, hot morning at the zoo, we went and took a tour behind the scenes at CNN. We then made our way to the High Museum of Art, which is an amazing museum with 5 stories of art and sculpture.
Day 4 Friday: Our busy day began with a visit to the Coca-Cola factory. (Note, every place we have been thus far had a field trip going on!) Here we learned a ton about Coke's history, Coke's secret ingredient, and got to try over 60 flavors of Coke products from around the world. After this exciting adventure, we wanted to take a breather so we went for a stroll through Atlanta's gorgeous Centennial Olympic Park. Then we made our way to the Georgia Aquarium, which I was more than excited about. We started out with the hands on part of the aquarium which is always cool to be able to touch sting rays, sharks, star fish, and many more little sea creatures. We walked through almost all the exhibits, then made our way to watch the AT&T Dolphin Tales show held at the aquarium. It was mind blowing what the dolphins and their trainers could do! After the show, we finally made it to the part of the aquarium that I was most excited about... the huge tank! I was in awe and could not believe my eyes, there was a whale shark right above me just swimming around! I did not want to leave this peaceful retreat, so I just sat back and enjoyed every minute of it. All of a sudden we saw people scuba diving in the tank, what an awesome site! I would love to be able to do that one day, I could only imagine how amazing it was.
To end our day, we hiked up Stone Mountain to watch the sunset
( it didn't set until about 9:00-9:30pm!) After the sun finally set, we sat as close
to the edge of the mountain as the fences would let us, which was about 15 feet
from the straight drop off and listened to the laser show going on below
us. When it came time for the fireworks, we were literally 30 feet from them and
they never went above us at 825 feet in the air. It was amazing and
unbelievable, Forth of July fireworks will never be the same after seeing some
from the top of a mountain.
Day 5 Saturday: Sadly our last day in Atlanta has came. We wanted to do something memorable to end our great trip. Before we even left Pensacola for our trip, we had planned on taking our Kohl's Cares stuffed animals and placing them in places we'd been and take their photo. We forgot to do this until we remembered the day we were leaving Atlanta... So we decided instead of renting a boat, we'd climb Stone Mountain again (ten hours after we just hiked down it) to take our stuffed animals photo on top of the mountain. Most would call us crazy, but it was all for a photo and totally worth it! Once we got out of Atlanta, we stopped by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts and Creek casino. We spent way too long at the casino but I was having so much fun! By doing so we didn't get back to Pensacola until about 2am Sunday morning.
I had such a great time on our trip and didn't want to leave! I did so many exciting and new things and loved every minute of it. I hope that you enjoyed my blog! :)
Congratulations to Tom and Jessica on their recent marriage.
