Family Day Outting

I love those rare weekdays when Fletcher has off work. We get to explore this new city and he's always up for doing something fun. Yesterday we decided it was the perfect opportunity to check out Atlanta's famous aquarium. Bennett will love it when he's a little older.....he slept through it this time around, but we documented it for him anyway. They have touch pools where you can feel the sting rays and sharks (gave me the whillies) and one huge tank with every kind of fish you can imagine (holds 6.2 million gallons of water). Crazy! So nice for us to have a family day out. I've only been in Atlanta for going on 3 months and with Bennett's arrival, learning my way around is a slow process, so days where we can get out and about are lots of fun for me. Bennett and I are getting better and with our new GPS system in my car, we'll be able to find whatever it is we're looking for. Here's a family portrait at the aquarium.

Bennett Meets Nana Sue & GP!

Well, we've had an eventful week. Nana Sue (my former boss) and GP (Grandma Penny....our buyer's agent and dear friend) came out from sunny southern California to visit us and meet Bennett. Bless their hearts! They were only here for a day when I got pretty sick. We're talking fever and the whole bit. Those ladies took over with Bennett while I got some much-needed rest. I'll have to say, Bennett and Fletcher loved every minute of it. Sue and Penny spoiled my boys with new toys and homemade chocolate chip cookies, lemon pie, and the list goes on. We're blessed to have such a wonderful extended family. We hated to see them go, but know they'd had enough of this chilly weather. Now they can put their winter coats back in storage until their next visit to the south!
