I'm baaaaack from Atlanta and ready to go!

Oh My Goodness!  What a whirlwind trip!
I left for the airport at 2:30 on Thursday
and after an uneventful trip
(unless you count the full body pat down at the airport)
I arrived in Atlanta at 9:30.
The weather was fabulous~in the 60's and usually sunny!
 I spent Friday on my own  while my boy was at work
and since Graham lives 1/2 block from Atlanta's largest park
and 1 block from midtown (that lovely skyline in the background)
I had no trouble filling my time!
 Friday evening we had supper at an artsy little place around the corner called  The Nook.
TOTchos were on the menu...tater tot nachos is what they were and DELICIOUS, too!
 Saturday we ran errands and I had to get some PEACHES
Unfortunately the peach crop in Georgia is not ready yet...
the trees are not even budded out
soooooo these peaches are from CHILE...better than none!

Then we went letterboxing in that big park...
Graham found it right away!
We also found cypress knees and sweet gum "balls"
What fun!

Another new experience for me was riding the train!
We took MARTA to another part of Atlanta to see
Well, the gift shop anyway as the lines were too long!

Our lunch was cocktails
(diet Coke straight up)
on top of this revolving skyscraper
72 floors of breathtaking scenery!

Before I knew it, it was time to fly home!
However, my kiddos and hubby met me first
(along with Graham's girlfriend, Melissa, who teaches in the Cities)
for a tour of REAL PIRATES at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
What swashbuckling fun!!!

We made it home around 8 pm to totally CRASH!
I snuggled up to watch a movie with John and was asleep before he even turned on the TV!

Monday, Lee was home!!! 
He spent the time showing the kids how to call for Sasquach...never a dull (or quiet!) moment!

For those of you interested, my facebook page has tons of pics.
The K site will be updated later this week with pics of America the Beautiful workshop.
