Vacationing in Atlanta

For the past few days, my family and I have snuck in one last summer vacation jaunt before the school year kicks in for all of us. We've been in Atlanta since Saturday and have had some fun times. The main reason for our trip was so that Squirrelly Girlie the Elder could visit with some friends she made during her first Baptist Youth Camp earlier this summer. You know how those intense camps can go. So, we mitigated some of the emotionally draining and depressive aftereffects of the experience by promising that we would make this trip to hook up with her new BFFs. And that's what we've done. It's been a very relaxing and good trip so far. One highlight of the trip was our visit to the Atlanta Aquarium, which is superb. Here are some pix of the Aqarium creatures we saw on the outing:

And here's Squirrelly Girlie the Elder with her BFFs:

Another great thing about the trip was that I got to see one of my best, lifelong friends from high school AND college, Iron Man G-beaux-beaux (and when I say Iron Man, I mean it literally -- he qualified for and competed in the Kona Iron Man race. The dude's a hoss!). G-beaux-beaux and his beautiful family live in the Atlanta area and it was great to see them. Here we are:
