On to more fun things! Yesterday D and I hit Hotlanta for some adventures. We hit the Aquarium, World of Coca- Cola, Trader Joe's and The Vortex. Fun, shopping and food. The perfect day. For those of you who may not know I have a weird fascination with marine life. So I was super excited for the aquarium. Probably more so than is healthy. The Georgia aquarium is the largest in the world and they have some incredible displays.
The aquarium was awesome but just too crowded for our taste and it is really pricey so be prepared for that sticker shock. Now I realize that we picked a day where kids are out of school and families are on vacation blah, blah, blah but it is my blog so I am going to vent. Seriously if your man beast of a 12 year old shoves me out of the way at the penguin display I am gonna shove them back. If they out weigh me it is fair game parents so don't look all shocked that I push back instead look shocked that your child thinks that shoving strangers is appropriate behavior. Same thing with banging on the glass at the exhibits. The albino alligator does not appreciate it and neither do I. Oh and if your toddler is throwing a fit in the walkway that is preventing the rest of us from getting around instead of telling them they are in the way and should move twenty times just pick them up and move them, they weigh all of four pounds and as demonstrated above I have no problem shoving your kid outta my way. Better you do it than me. Now I realize I don't have children so my tolerance level for all things child is very low but come on.
So what have we learned here- I don't function well in public. And should probably recognize the aquariums are primarily meant for children not adults with weird fish fascinations.
After getting our fill of fish we struck out for the World of Coca- Cola. This place has several exhibits- the vault where they keep the recipe, the Coca-Cola polar bear you can have your picture with, historical stuff about Coca-Cola and a bottling exhibit. D and I were there for one reason and one reason only. To sample stuff.
Everyone watches a movie and learns a little bit about the product in the beginning but then you are turned loose. We headed straight for the tasting room.
On the way out you got a glass coke to take with you.
Overall a fun adventure day!
