Hello everyone! I finally am getting around to posting the pictures from our vacation to Atlanta. We went on a Thursday night and stayed though Monday. We had a lot of fun and Ryleigh and Tanner were so good the whole time! That's right I said Ryleigh, Tanner and good in the same sentence! It doesn't happen for me often. I really couldn't of asked for them to be any better. We were gone all day everyday and they handled it just fine. On Friday we went to the aquarium, the Olympic park and then to the mall.

Ryleigh and Tanner LOVED the aquarium, especially Tanner since he is so observant and loves to just look around at things. While we were there we went and saw Deepo's 4D underwater show which is basically a rip off of Finding Nemo but it was in 4D. Where you have to wear those goofy glasses and everything looks like its jumping out at you. Ryleigh kept trying to grab all the fish because she thought they were right in her face! Once we left there we went to the Olympic Park. By that time Tanner was dead asleep in the stroller he was so tired!

Saturday morning we got up and went to a children's museum called imagine it, the kids and I loved it but Ryan wasn't that crazy about it. It was kind of like the explorium we have here but just for smaller kids. They have all different types of exhibits.

Saturday afternoon we went to a mini Six Flags its sponsored by Six Flags but its just for smaller kids. Ry and Tanner loved it! They rode all the rides twice! Ryleigh even rode a roller coaster. Like for bigger kids. She made the height requirement (imagine that) so we let her ride. I was scared she would freak out and they wouldn't stop it so she could get off. She did fine though.

On Sunday we went to a church in Atlanta called Buckhead. Its a really contemporary satellite church. The preachers name is Andy Stanley and you receive the message via satellite since he has like 4 or 5 churches. At first I thought it would be kinda weird but it turned out to be really cool. Its a HUGE church and they have a band and things like that. Basically as far from Baptist as you can find! After that we went to Six Flags White Water Park. I think we rode down this one slide a million times! Ryleigh and Tanner just kept doing it over and over again!
So all and all we had a very nice vacation. It was fun to go off with just our family. Normally we are with a ton of people or with church.
We hope everyone is doing well!
God Bless,
The Stokley's
