Going back that way.

Yesterday we found ourselves in Atlanta as we made our way back home. We were meant to spend a portion of time in Georgia but it didn't happen that way so we will have to do it later. We set the GPS to head for the Atlanta airport and once there I entered places to see and choose the historic district. HAH, demographically that wasn't a good choice...that's all I'll say. We made a quick detour and I chose something else, FAST. We decided to head to the CNN building as we could actually see that. Much better.

It was such a beautiful day, the sun was shining, the sky was cloudless and there was a slight nip in the air if you walked in the shade, which of course, the girls and l did.
Lily thought the CNN sign was awesome!
I love flags


After we left CNN we walked across the street to the Olympic Park. Ironic that on the day off the closing ceremony of the of the Olympics in London we were walking in the park that commemorated the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996.

this park is beautiful and smack dab in the middle of Downtown Atlanta
Then we headed off to the airport for a very uneventful flight back to Miami. Uneventful if you ignore the fact that Lily suddenly became itchy all over her feet and lower legs. She was covered in bites of some sort. Really awful bites and there were tonnes of them. I, due to my OCD and germ phobe brain, immediately became convinced that they were from bed bugs. She could barely walk they were so bad. Being Lily she sucked it up pretty good and being me I had benedryll cream in my purse but it barely helped at all.

It's good to be home.

It wouldn't be bedbugs if it showed up that late in the day....maybe something from the park???

Welcome home!! Looks like a wonderful vacation was had by all.

Sorry Lily has to deal with the bug bites. Perhaps something from the park hitched a ride back? :-(
