Our Atlanta Trip by the Numbers

We just had a wonderful long weekend in Atlanta and I’m recapping by the numbers today. 

Here we go! 

1 – Cold that I came down with right before we left… that paired with my allergy issues could have resulted in a miserable trip, but fortunately, I stayed feeling pretty good thanks to modern medicine.

100 – Times I blew my nose… at least… I went through a whole box of tissues and then some.

10 – Times(ish) that the tissue box fell over on B in the car.  Lol.

8 – Rooms visited at Candytopia

42 – Free pieces of candy brought home from Candytopia

4 – Hours spent at Zoo Atlanta

2 – Animals we didn’t get to see at the zoo due to some renovations (giraffes and zebras)

2 – Times the kids got to see animals poop at the zoo.  They were way too excited about this… it brought back sweet memories of watching the rhinoceros pee at Disney World.  Lol.

1 – Time the kids got to see animals pee at the zoo.  Can’t make this stuff up, y’all.

1 – Time Olivia fell asleep in the car

6 – Floors high was our hotel room

2 – Sky bucket rides taken up and down Stone Mountain

1 – Time I had to rub lavender oil on my neck and wrist to calm my anxiety from riding said sky buckets… those things look scary from the ground but they’re surprisingly smooth.

18 – Holes of Miniature Golf played

0 – Holes in one achieved

1 – Train ride taken

15 – Donuts consumed… y’all knew this was coming!

4 – Adult beverages consumed

4 – Flattened penny souvenirs brought home

1 – Time we were asked if Jacob and Olivia are twins… literally happens on every single trip we take, y’all!!

0 – Times the cooler fell over in the back of the car… Brian finally wised up and strapped it down this trip.  ;o)

The entire recap should be up Wednesday, and tomorrow, I’ll be sharing our Amazon purchases for the month of March!  Happy Monday, y’all!  It’s nice to be back in the swing of things!
