Atlanta and a Wedding




On the way to Andy's Wedding, we stopped in Atlanta for a couple nights to have a mini-vacation.
This is the kids on the way into Downtown Atlanta....
excited maybe?


We parked in a lot beside Centennial Olympic Park.  This was kind of neat for me because I came to Atlanta for my Senior Class trip in 1996, right before the Olympics were held here. 



 The whole park was made up of these blocks engraved with names of people who donated.


It was a huge park with a lot of neat features...like this courtyard with flags all around it.


 

This is the largest interactive fountain in the world.


 They had two playgrounds that were fun to explore.











Beautiful fountains

Very strange painting on a building...

 What a nice day....Now on to the wedding!  I posted a bunch of the wedding pictures on Facebook, but here are a few snapshots:
