Joey and Janice's Day of Fun!


On Sunday we are moving to Kansas City to finish out the rest of the summer so Trey and I decided to at least attempt to visit some of the places Atlanta has to offer before we take off. We started out at the aquarium, which is apparently the largest aquarium in the world. We went in this tunnel under a very large tank full of fish and I think it made me claustrophobic cause I was not feeling so hot afterwards. It was either that or the 8 foot dead squid they had on display. 

This whale shark is supposedly a big attraction here. They have 4 of them that were shipped over from Taiwan thanks to UPS and watching the video on that process was pretty cool. You can pay $225 to swim with them, but we weren't trying to get too crazy. Who spends $500 for one aquarium visit? Just go to the ocean and swim with the sharks for free. 



After the aquarium we walked over to the World of Coca Cola. Coke was invented in Atlanta so they've made an attraction out of it with some exhibits, a 4D movie theater (my favorite), and a tasting room full of different Coke products sold on all the continents. The majority of them made me gag. I think pee probably tastes better than most of the drinks I tasted. Here Trey is toasting his free Coke Zero that they hand out to everybody. 


4D movies are one of my favorite things in life and luckily we got to go see 2 on this day. Even though I always cover my face when the water sprays I can't stop laughing and loving it. The best one I've ever been to was with my mom out here in Atl. So far, nothing has come close to that, but the 2 from this day were still pretty fun. On a side note, I got an iPhone this week and I am in love with it. Why have I not gotten one before now when I am the second biggest Apple lover I know?

How fun! I actually went to that aquarium when I was on a business trip in Atlanta a couple years ago. It was really cool. Looks like you guys had so much fun.

So did you drink Beverly?! That one made me gag more than anything else. I had to stand over a trash can and have someone run to get me regular coke to get the nastiness out of my mouth.

Bri said...

Oh and we got iPhone's too. And now I don't know how I lived without it!!!

Krista said...

I am so happy that you got to do a few things.The 4-D was my favorite too. I was even better going with you. Your laugh was so contageous.

Brianne said...

My Dad told me you guys were moving to Kansas City last night. I am so excited! That's only three hours away from us. We're driving through there on our way down to visit bobby's parents in Pittsburg, KS in August. Hopefully we can get together. You're so funny. Did you take a picture of the dead squid? Is it gross that I kind of want to see that?
