We got back late last night from our trip to Atlanta. We left Thusday night to head down to her brother's graduation. We drove most of the night and arrived by 7:00 in the morning and had a small breakfast. Marie's brother was busy so we headed off to Olympic Park, the sight where they hosted the 1996 Olympics. We walked through the park for a bit and then went to the World of Coke. We went through the museums and then had a lot of free Coke-a-Cola product samples. After that we went to our hotel, checked in, and crashed. We were able to sleep a couple of hours before Marie's parents arrived. After they got there we went with them out to dinner and stuffed ourselves on Mexican. Once we were done with that we finally met up with Aaron to get tickets for graduation.
Graduation was long, but we got to watch Aaron walk and receive his masters in Mechanical Engeneering! And after that we went back to the hotel, had a couple drinks, and then decided that we needed some Chinese and stuffed ourselves again. Not long after we decided it was time to go to bed. Besides, Marie and I were exhausted. In the morning we went down to the lobby with Marie's parents and spent a couple of hours talking and having coffee. After the 'designated time,' we met up with Aaron again and we decided to go to Ikea. Marie and I had never been before, and let me tell you it was an experience. Before we headed out we decided to stuff our faces yet again at Taco Mac's. It was pretty good. But, as all good things, it had to come to an end. So Marie and I got back on the road and headed back home. It was a long weekend, but it was good to see family that we don't get to see often!
