Molly and I headed to Atlanta for our fall break trip this year
Molly is very interested in dinosaurs right now and so I googled the nearest dinosaur exhibit and found a great one in Atlanta
We packed the car and left town after church last Sunday.
She was super excited to stay in a hotel, honestly I think we could just stay in a hotel and that would be enough for her!
This is the Fernbank Museum of Natural history.
It is a small museum in a very beautiful area of Atlanta
the drive from the hotel to the museum was so gorgeous!
through neighborhoods with Halloween decorations, fall landscaping, and beautiful homes!
Here we are waiting for the museum to open
The outside grounds were so pretty!
Molly pretending to be a dino!
Currently she says she's going to be a paleontologist and a veterinarian who lives on a farm!
I wonder if that may change?
Here is the life size dino exhibit...amazing!
pretending to be eaten...
when you are the only child, you have to pose in both head openings! ha!
here she is as a news reporter
we also headed to the atlanta zoo to see the cute panda bears among other things!
molly wasn't as impressed with these as i was, but she tolerated them and found some things things that interested her in each one.
for those who've never been, they have fountain samples like the one above for every continent!
under each flavor, is the country the coke is from.
the "beverly" on the end is only available at the coca cola facility and also Epcot. (and italy)
the fountain drinks were super cold too!
the landscaping was gorgeous!
kind of strange to be in the middle of a downtown, urban area, but really cool!
overall it was a great trip!
2 days was perfect for the amount of things we did.
it's a great weekend trip for the nashville area.
also, if you are thinking about planning a trip to atlanta i bought an atlanta city pass book that included tickets/passes to all of the places we went to and saved us probably 50% of the regular ticket prices.
