On Friday evening we left for Atlanta. We were looking forward to the Atlanta Temple open house. The Temple is being re-dedicated on May 1st. This is one of the smoother trips (road or flying) we have made as a family. Lots of preparations as always and many details to organize. It was great to see a big city though I found the 7 lanes (in each direction) on the freeway a bit crazy! We made it through insane tornado weather and arrived safely at our hotel. Evidently there were 100 across the south that day! Some friends in our ward happened to be staying there as well. It was great that Ethan had a friend to run around with on Saturday (and company for us). We enjoyed the spirit of the Temple and then went to a mall nearby for lunch & attended to other things. From there we went 'home' to relax a bit before
the boys left for the Braves game. Parker & I stayed plenty busy and enjoyed a little quiet.
We loved having time to enjoy with just each other. Loooong overdue and much needed! I will post again shortly with the baseball & aquarium pics..
