Weekend get-a-way

This past weekend we took a quick trip to Atlanta to see a Braves game.  We left early Saturday morning and made a few extras stops since we were traveling with 5 children.  Once we arrived, we attempted to go to the Aquarium but being a holiday weekend plus the first game of College football, we scratched that idea quickly.  Instead, we took the kids to Imagine It- Children's museum.  The kids had a blast.  We easily spent a few hours of play time before heading out for dinner. 
The kids loved playing with the moon sand.  My kids have learned that this is the only place they will be playing with moon sand.  Don't believe those commercials that moon sand is zero mess and so easy to clean up.  It is currently off limits in our house!
Aiden and Ian making their creations.

Mikayla and Ethan making their masterpiece.  Mikayla made a great flower but they were quick to destroy it.  That is the best part.

Another thing the kids can't do at home... paint on the walls.
After dinner, the ladies minus Mikalya took a trip to Ikea- I love that place!!  Papa and Chad took the kids swimming in the pool and then they had fun jumping on the bed (the kids... not Papa and Chad). 
On Sunday, we spent the day at the Braves field.  It was rainy but we still managed to have a great time. 

See Nana and Isabelle way up in the stands?!?  She wanted to make sure Isabelle didn't get hit by a foul ball during batting practice... but actually, it had started raining so we think Nana didn't want to get her hair wet.  That's our Nana! :)

The Georgia Tech- Buzz was at the game as well.

The kids took a break before the game started to play in the kid's zone.

Ethan went all the way to a Braves game and still found time to play video games.

Mikayla and Ethan dancing - trying to get on camera.

Did I mention that I loved Ikea?!?  Well, Stephanie and I had to make one more trip on Sunday night just in case we missed something. 

One last picture of Isabelle just being silly.
