Atlanta, Georgia weekend

 We have been itching to travel.  
Atlanta is two and a half hours away, so we headed to GA for our long weekend!
 The boys were ecstatic when we told them we were going to Six Flags on our first day!
 We spent half of our time at the water park and the other half riding the roller coasters.

 It was HOT and humid!  We were worn out by the end of the day.  We were all fast asleep by 9:00!
 Ethan has a big science project due in a few weeks.  After a bit of research, we learned that Stone Mountain was super close to Atlanta and he could use the brochure information in his project. 
We headed out Sunday morning!   
 The temperature had dropped a bit and we enjoyed walking around the park.

 After Stone Mountain, we had a super fun lunch at Dave and Busters.  
We spent 2 1/2 hours eating and playing!  
The time flew by!
 The boys had a blast!
 It was about 3:00 and I told the family that Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta.  I asked if they wanted to go see his house.  I received a big fat YES....of course!!!  
We stopped at the church he and his father preached in first.  
 We walked by his grave site.  
 We ended at his house!  The whole historic area was within walking distance.  
We had a gorgeous weather day for seeing all the history. 
 We ended our night at Richard Blais' Flip Burger.  
Our weekend was so quick, but we packed in a ton of stuff!!!  Nate goes back to work tomorrow, but the boys and I get one more day together!  Happy Labor Day Weekend!
