hotlanta.

except it wasn't so hot. after this week, i'd probably call it windylanta. but it sure was funlanta!
on wednesday, peter, william, and i drove to atlanta for the week. peter had a dental conference, so will and i, being the dentist-lovers that we are, decided to accompany him.the highlight of our drive up was a stop at Mae's Wings and Things. yep, that's right. lizards, gizzards, whiting, and mullet. what more could you want in a delicious lunch?


and sometimes peter got tired driving, so will helped him out.

btw. peter had to present some research that he'd done at the conference and he did a PHENOMENAL job. and he looked like a total babe presenting in his air force blues. way to go, babe.
but it wasn't all work, we definitely had our fair share of playing. will and i loved the aquarium. did you know that whale sharks (i'm not entirely sure if that's their official name, but i doubt you guys know either though, so it's cool, right?) can grow to be as big as a BUS?! crazy. we saw a couple of those. but, i'd say they were more along the lines of a honda accord. they've still got some growing to do.

the centennial olympic park was a fun place to hang out. they had fountains, paths for walking, waterfalls, and a playground for the kids. our hotel was only a couple of blocks away, so we frequented the park just about everyday.


probably the funnest (i know that's not a word, but i use it regularly knowing it's not a word. you're just going to have to deal with it.) place we went was the World of Coke. let's be honest though, we paid $15 to try 64 different types of soda from around the world. totally worth it. y'all have got to try SMART. it's a delicious green apple soda from china. TO DIE FOR. the night that we went to the World of Coke, i totally dreamed about SMART. i dreamt that we went back to the museum and they let us buy a bunch of 2 liter bottles to take home. i was loving it. the museum also had an awesome Coke-is-awesome-propagandaish-4D-movie that william did not love. every time the chairs rocked he freaked out, so will and i left the movie a little early. it's okay though, he got some really cool glasses to chew on, so he was fine. the olsens, our friends who are stationed at Eglin AF Base in florida were in atlanta with us, so we had some good times hanging out with them.

here are the betrothed william and london. remember their first meeting?

london got to atlanta and told will that she's been sitting up on her own. so, she taught him how. then they had a sit-off.

here we are, relaxing at piedmont park. lately will doesn't really love getting his diaper changed . . . he's always trying to roll away.
will had a nice picnic of peas and milk while peter and i enjoyed just watching and laughing at our funny little boy!

Its fun to see Will sitting and the picture with London where he is just beside her is so cute.
Cute haircut, Emily.
Awesome Air Force Blues, Peter. You look so dignified.
How nice that your hotel was so close to the park and that you could venture out the to the aquarium, Coke place etc. Fun trip.
