A Two Day Break...by Katie Lyn

Last week we took two days off for Spring Break!
So, we went to the Birmingham Zoo with our neighborhood friend!
Kevin was ready to ride the train!

Bathroom break!...not really

Here we are waiting at the zoo sitting at picnic tables....

We were waiting for my dad to come and rescue us. We had brought lunch to the zoo, but our lunch was in the car and so were the keys. Guess what? The car was locked! Thankfully, my dad's work wasn't too far from the zoo, and so he came and unlocked the car for us and then headed straight back to work.

And we got to eat!

Then, when we got home from the zoo and dropped off our neighborhood friend we packed our backpacks for a one night stay in Atlanta! My dad had a business meeting there and so we went with him! During my dad's meeting we went to these places:


We went to the World of Coke = The Coca-Cola Musem

We also went to the Fernbank Science Center

Kevin was worn slap out!

Fernbank also had a trail. During the walk Kevin slept in the stroller the entire time! He missed out on some awesome nature!

We ended the day at Perimeter Mall and ate some good ol' Chick-Fil-A!

After dinner at the mall we sat in the car and watched Beverly Hills Chihuahua until my dad got out of his meeting. By the time we got home it was 10:30 p.m.! We all had a fantastic two day Spring Break!

Laine.... your kids are beautiful inside and out. It was such a joy to get to know a couple of them a little better in discipleship last Sunday. Some of the sweetest little ones I've ever been around. I am so thankful God has weaved our lives together and I pray this is only the beginning. Love you friend!

Katie Lyn,
Sounds like you guys had a great time last week! World of Coke is one of my favorite places. I love tasting all the different drinks and watching the old commercials.
I enjoyed reading and seeing the pictures. You should be a contributing author more often! :)
