Refreshed, Reconnected and Ready!

Good Morning! I am back! I did not take my laptop for those of you wondering. We had a wonderful trip and feel so much better.

We left Friday afternoon when Hubby got home from work. We dropped off the boys and went on our way. We stopped and had supper at our favorite restaurant (Top O' the River). Then on to Atlanta. We stayed at this Embassy Suites (Friday and Saturday nights) and it was fabulous! We got up and went to the grand atrium for a fully cooked to order breakfast each morning (included in the room price). They had omelets, bacon, ham, sausage, eggs, grits, hash browns, toast, bagels, english muffins, muffins, doughnuts, cereals, every kind of fruit, six kinds of juice, hot chocolate, coffees, hot teas, iced teas and soft drinks. All you can eat kind of got me off of the diet path. I twas so yummy!

Each evening they have a manager's reception with appetizers as well as cocktails and soft drinks. We did not get to attend but heard it was great. The three glass elevators overlooked the grand atrium for a wonderful view.

Our suite was gorgeous. It was a living room and king bedroom divided by the kitchen area and bath. There were two televisions (not that we watched much tv), microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator.

Saturday we went to Turner Field and took the tour and it was great as well. After the tour we went and had lunch at The Ole Mill Steakhouse and back to the hotel for a rest before leaving for the Braves game. We got back to Turner Field for the game 3 hours or so before it started. It was such a great experience!!! Our seats were right behind 3rd base and just 13 rows off of the field. We had supper there, consisting of typical ballpark food. We had cokes, hot dogs and peanuts. The price was steep, but the experience was worth every penny! The braves got beat BUT it was awesome! By the way I do not like baseball, I have never watched a whole game on tv, but I went for my Hubby! Now, I am now a true baseball fan though. I truly enjoyed every aspect of the game!

Sunday morning we arose and went to breakfast, then checked out and rove home. We arrived right after noon and visited with my parents for awhile, packed up our boys and went home. We enjoyed ourselves, immensely but am glad to be back. Home sweet home.........nothing like it!

We never had to worry one moment about our boys, they were so well taken care if by my parents. What a blessing to have such wonderful grandparents for our little miracles!

I hope to get some pictures downloaded and up tomorrow but no time today. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and will have a blessed day today! Blessings!!!!!!
