Aquarium Love

Visit the Georgia Aquarium and ooohhh & aaahhh over the sights. Thank you Georgia Aquarium for the comp ticket!

I love the huge fish tanks.

Georgia Aquarium

The Aquarium was on baby watch with this Beluga Whale at the time of our visit. I checked for an update and she became a Mommy on Mother’s Day, May 10th. Great timing for sure click HERE for more info and pics of the baby {126 lbs.) whale.

Fun things to do in Atlanta 13

I plugged in this address and arrived for the most exciting experience of our entire trip.

Double Dutch Aerobics with the cutest couple we randomly ran into while at the expo although they didn’t attend the expo. Anytime we see someone with the words “Double Dutch” on their shirts, we are asking questions. They happily shared with us and we showed up for their fitness class. WHAT! I hadn’t jumped double dutch in almost 20 years but apparently it’s like riding a bike.

… you guessed it! This class was fun but it’s not cake walk. It’s a full on work out but they can teach ANYONE to double dutch. The video shows a few things I learned during the class. In an hour of fun we burned  500-700 calories.

My new favorite couple

Sean & Michelle aren’t just in Atlanta; they have instructors in other cities. Check their website to see how you, your children or grandma can connect with them. They don’t judge.

If you know other fun things to do in he A let me know. I’ve done all the M.L.K Jr. things and The World of Cola

    I’m thinking I’m going to have to make it to the ATL this summer! It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 15 years since I was last there. I’ve always liked the energy of the city and am now thinking it’s a place my daughter, who enjoys traveling as much as I do, would enjoy.
