About to do some massive picture updating! My wordpress was giving me issues so I haven’t been able to blog for the past few weeks. I hope I haven’t lost any blogging friends and viewers along the way.
So photo catchup #1 The VA State Fair 2010
We have animals
Giant Pumpkins and Police Cars oh my!
And then us with our giant fake cotton candy lol
Blog Catchup #2 spontaneous Road Trip to Atlanta to see my very last Bobby Cox Game
Before the game we had enough time to go to the World of Coke Museum. It was pretty awesome. Learning about how they make coke and then getting to taste test coke from all over the world.
The had a collection of Atlanta Braves autographed baseballs.
After checking out of our hotel room later in the afternoon it was time for the game! Check us out at Turner Field.
Now we had to get our game gear on and get ready to cheer! Go Braves!
Awesome story we went to Turner Field in 2008 and met the nicest usher. When we arrived at the game this time there she was!
Braves lost but we still had a blast cheering them on and getting to see one last game with Bobby Cox. He was the manager of the Braves my entire childhood. When I was a kid mom and dad would pack up the car and we would drive the 3 hours to Atlanta to see this team play and him to coach. He has been thrown out of more games than any other coach in baseball history. Why? He defends his players. It was sad to see him go. It was like seeing a part of my childhood end.
Blog Catchup #3 My brother and his wife Whitney’s Visit (drove all the way from AL) (far far away)
They are newly married and hadn’t really had a honeymoon yet so I encouraged them to go to VA Beach for a few days then come hang out with us for two days.
Here they are on the beach.
We took them to the theme park King’s Dominion and after the sun went down it became the Halloween Haunt. For the first part of the day they rode a lot of roller coasters.
This is called the Tomb Raider. Its NUTS!
Next up the Drop Zone
And then it was dark time. Everyone meets back at the front gate and then the release the spirits and the haunting begins. The crazy part is parents know that this is rated PG13 after hours and all these tiny kids were sitting and waiting. Then they were running and screaming in real terror. I felt bad for them. I had to partake in some fake screaming lol.
Then we took in a few of the parks shows. This was our favorite.
The freak show
In the middle of the freak show they asked for a volunteer. David got to go onstage and stand on a man who was laying on a bed of nails.
It was freaky!
They were action packed. After some fire eating you could staple a dollar bill to this guys chest.
My brother couldn’t resist.
We had fun
The next day I took my brother to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
I love this museum.
The pop art is my favorite!
And they have added this awesome reflecting pool area
After the museum we took them to our favorite pizza place Bottoms Up and then off to the Byrd for “Inception”
