Fish- GA Aquarium

Eric had a few days off in a row last week and we decided that we needed ANOTHER road trip. :) We've been wanting to go to atlanta all summer, but there just hadn't been a good time to go. 3 days off in a row= a good time to go!

We got there Sunday afternoon and planned to go see one of our good friends, John, at his church. They have Sunday night service and IT WAS INCREDIBLE!! Eric and I were both so blessed by our time there. They just started a series called "Taking the Plunge" and it was just so on point with what I needed to hear. God is just good like that, ya know?! Not only were we blessed by the service, but we were blessed by a couple of people we got to see while we were there. One being John, and the other being Biscuet. B lives in China and he does some really amazing work there. I feel so blessed to know both of these men, and to call them my good friends. And I'm sad I didn't get a picture with them, oh well.


Monday was family fun day! :) And we headed to the GA Aquarium to show Laney what real fish look like. If you don't like looking at pictures of fish, or my child, then skim on to the bottom of this post, because I took a lot of pictures of the fish.

Beluga- GA aquarium

Ok, does anyone know what is in the above picture? It's a Beluga. If you got it right, email me, I'll send you a special prize, like a reply congratulating you on your knowledge of marine biology. Ok, so, does anyone know the song about the Beluga?? "Baby beluga in the deep blue sea...you swim so high and you swim so free..." I started singing it while we were at the exhibit and Eric just looked at me and made me feel stupid laughed . He had never heard of it!!! Ok, so, if you've heard it, PLEASE leave me a comment telling me that I'm not crazy and it is a REAL song, so I can make my husband feel dumb see my song knowledge.

Ok, back to more fish pictures...

This one's for you, Kelly...Albino alligator.


After the aquarium Laney and I decided to play at the park while Daddy went and got the car. What a good hubs he is. :)

Later that night my dad took us to his favorite Mexican place. Eric and I eat Mexican at LEAST twice a week, so we were game! IT WAS SO GOOD!


ATL has so much to offer. Good friends. Good church. Good eats. SOLD! We had a great time! Thanks ATL!

Who could forget singing Baby Beluga with Mr. Evans in music class at TPS! I think Raffi sings it. Remember him? (des colores, apples and bananas, down on grandpa's farm...) :)

Lele said...

THANK YOU!! I knew I wasn't crazy...but Eric knows about every song to man. I figured SURELY he knew "baby beluga."

Oh yes, Raffi does indeed belt out "Baby Beluga". His CD is on constant rewind in my car for sweet Lucy and Charlotte. And because Lucy asked what a beluga was, we googled it. Your photo was easily identified.
