Cressy demanded to use the pool, but then said it was no fun because it didn't have a) other kids in it, b) a ten story water slide, or c) that it wasn't much bigger than a postage stamp.
The next day we went to The World of Coca Cola.
While we were waiting for The World of Coca Cola to open up and show us its colaness, we explored the Centennial Olympic Park, or where the summer Olympics were held in 1996, or the Olympics that had the bombing in it at Atlanta. (Sadly, that's the major event that pops into my head.)
|Olympic memorial or the cash cow that keeps|
on giving to Atlanta.
No one can frown on a playground.
It's the law.
|Of course, when I see the CNN building I think|
of James Earl Jones saying,
Now I bet you can't get it out of your head.
Onto Coca Cola World!
|Have a drink and a smile...|
Next it was on to the Coca Cola Polar Bear for a photo op.
|I say they had someone in the bear suit.|
HIM said it was all animatronic.
I wanted to go back to kick the bear
in the nuts to show HIM
but those pesky security guards
|There was Coca Cola art work everywhere.|
|I was forced to be in the photograph.|
Remember the camera adds 50 pounds,
no, 100 pounds. Whatever.
|Let me tell you, The World of Coca Cola|
isn't messing around with its product
The last part of the museum is going through the gift shop, and the gift shop is almost as large
as the rest of the museum. They had stuff that was way cool. I was forced to spend about $200 in there. But we did get a souvenir bottle of Coca Cola.
Next was Ikea, where we consumed of the Swedish meatballs. The kid had macaroni and cheese because she hasn't learned the finer aspects of Swedish meatballs.
|We bought a bunch of stuff here, too.|
The hat Cressy's wearing was from
The World of Coca Cola. It's a polar
bear hat. It kind of looks like
Finn from Adventure Time to me.
Finally, we left Atlanta, our wallets a little lighter, and our horizons broadened.
|We stopped to pee here.|
It needed to be said.
Happy summer vacations to the rest of you. May you find the cleanest restrooms and always have plenty of toilet paper.
