Atlanta Staycation Part III | Fernbank

On the last day of our staycation we headed to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. It is such a beautiful gem in Atlanta. When you walk in the museums great hall, you are surrounded by a recreation of the world’s largest dinosaurs which is stunning. The rest of the museum has a variation of different exhibits as well as a permanent exhibit on  Georgia’s History. One of the main attractions is the museums IMAX theatre, where it shows a variation of films on the planet and its beauty.

Atlanta Staycation Part II | Georgia Aquarium

I think this had to be my favorite day of our staycation! Days with a baby under one are pretty unpredictable, so I have learned to not have very many expectations when we go out to do something.

A Night Under The Sea

I was so excited when the Georgia Aquarium asked Ian and I to preview its new exhibits and celebrate its 10th Anniversary. When Ian and I first started dating around 7 years ago, we went to the aquarium for a date day. I hadn’t been back since. It was such a fun date night and exactly what we needed to break up our busy week. The new Sea Lion show (opening March 31st) was incredibly entertaining and a lot of fun. It brought back many memories of our trip to San Fransisco where we sat staring at the Sea Lions at Pier 225 for…
