Happy Easter! Here are some cute bunnies to enjoy!
While in Atlanta for the Publix's Georgia Marathon were able to hit a few attractions.
Our hotel was attached to the CNN Center and across the street from Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park. This is where the bomb went off during the Atlanta Summer Olympics in 1996. It's a nice sized area with wide open spaces and plenty of Olympic-related sculptures and fountains.
Adjacent to the park is The World of Coca-Cola. It's a museum dedicated to Coca-Cola the product and the company. Boy was this place crowded. There were lots of fun displays highlighting changes in the brand and our culture over the past 100+ years. One of the best features was The Tasting Room where you can sample over 60 different soda flavors from around the world.
As mentioned in our race report we had a chance to see the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial and National Site.
Our last stop before catching our flight out of town (ok second-to-last since we had time to catch a beer downtown) was the Margaret Mitchell House. This was the home of the author of Gone with the Wind. The house is part tribute to the author as well as part tribute to the film.
|We rode the fire truck up Main Street with the popular cast member Barbara at the wheel.|
|Used our new Magic Bands and decorated them with attachments that come off real easy.|
|Fed the Off Kilter ducks|
|A couple new character spottings.|
|We met Talking Mickey. He told us a story about the Haunted Mansion and asked us to pose like a hitch hiking ghost. Too bad he blinked.|
|We visited the Princess Fairytale Hall. Just like the Circus meet-and-greet room, this place needs a white balance adjustment on your camera.|
|Be Our Guest Restaurant cupcakes|
|Dave's favorite, Inca Kola, now in Club Cool. We are now spending too much time here.|
|Coney Island Chris performs at the Boardwalk Resort a night. His act is a bit on the twisted side.|
|Fantasia Gardens mini golf on the hard course. Try to get here right when they open so there isn't anyone in front of you.|
|Visited Sea Dog Brewing (off property) with a couple of friends. Eddie put the mascot head on while no one was looking.|
|Dinner at the new California Grill. Our meal prep was not timed well with the fireworks and both entrees were overcooked. Dave sent his back and Holly really should have sent her meal back.|
|Always fun to visit with Mike|
|Dave finally had Starbucks on property. Loved it!|
|Dinner with friends one night at Teppen Edo in Japan and other random fun.|
|Eddie joined our World Showcase Half Marathon victory lap. We got the special tequila shot in the commemorative glass.|
|Flying baby ride fun and getting photo bombed by friends.|
