Berry Atlanta Weekend

Hey hey hey!

Who's excited for Christmas?!?!? I'm looking forward to it but December seems like it's going to be really busy, and honestly, I'd really like to get some time to rest. While here in Atlanta, resting hasn't been possible - we've been out and about, and Cakes even had orders!

Anyways, my sister, brother, his friends, Cakes and I had a fun weekend that consisted of visiting a few places in Atlanta. Where we live isn't in Atlanta proper, so getting to go to the city made me feel like a tourist. Have you ever noticed that when you live in a city, you don't take advantage of what it has to offer tourism-wise? There are so many places in Atlanta that I've never been to and I lived here for 7 years! I think it's a good point to make a habit of discovering the city you live in. Have a staycation sometimes :)



First up, was the shooting range! I opted out of shooting because I've done it before - way back in 2009, my sister and I traveled to New Mexico for a wedding and the morning of the wedding, we gathered all our friends (and one of the groomsmen) and went to the gun range - don't laugh at our priorities :p So this time, I opted out, but Cakes, my siblings and their friend had a fun fun time :D

Afterwards, we headed to Atlantic Station to have something to eat. We were going to go ice-skating too but Cakes was tired and we had one more stop to make.








We then headed to the Atlanta Skyline, which wasn't here when I lived in Atlanta. It was a pretty sight to see. At first I was a little nervous about the height, but quickly adjusted.












 



Finally, we took a walk in Centennial Park. The 1996 Olympics were held there, and no Olympics have been held in the US since then. The next time possible is in 2024.








 


And that was the night we spent in Atlanta. I hope you liked the photos.

  8. I've never heard of the Atlanta skyline - your London Eye reference to ATL sent me here. I miss Atlanta, I haven't been at all this year which is crazy. Granted it's been a busy year but I miss it!!!!
