We left for Atlanta Thursday afternoon after Jasmine's hip hop class. It was late when we got in so we didn't do anything that night.
|They had a special whale exhibit.|
|They had a dinosaur room and these big dinos in the center.|

After this, we drove into downtown Atlanta to our hotel.The parking is $15 a day!! Yikes. But the lady adjusted it to $10 day, and she lowered my rate. Our first two nights were $30 cheaper than the rest of the week due to prices going up with the season, but (she said) she put them all at the cheaper rate. I'll see when we leave. I think she really liked Jasmine : )
The worst part was trying to park the SUV in a parking garage made for compact cars. I'm glad I left Jasmine at the hotel because I said a few words I didn't know that I knew!! I really could not find a parking place big enough for the SUV. I ended up backing it in between two cars who were probably saying some pretty colorful words when they had to get into their cars.
I don't plan to move the SUV until we leave on Wednesday. We are close enough to walk everywhere. We walked over to the aquarium. We took a short cut through Centennial Olympic park.It was probably a little less than a mile.
|The lady at the desk also gave us a tenth floor room that had a window and tiny balcony. I don't think you are really supposed to go out onto it but, well....|
|You can see the gold dome of the capitol building.|
|They have a working ferris wheel that's new since we were here three years ago.|
