ATL: Day 2

Yesterday we went to Chick-Fil-A headquarters and met up with my father in law's friend who was going to give us a tour. As we drove up to the entrance my breath was taken away by how beautiful the property is. It is set in the middle of trees and you take a nature path from the parking lot to the entrance. We were given a histroy lesson on how Chick-Fil-A was started. Towards the end of the tour we got to see the car collection which was neat. My favorite car in the collection: The Batmobile. After our tour we went down to the cafeteria where they offer the employees FREE lunch everyday (and their guests) It was a full on buffet with anything you would ever want. They also have a complete gym next to the cafeteria. Overall it seems like a fantastic company to work for who really values their employees. {I know there is a current Chick-Fil-A controversy and that some refuse to support their company. I however, love Chick-Fil-A because I LOVE their food. I also feel that everyone has the right to their opinion/beliefs whatever side they may be on and that we should respect and love one another.}

 After our Chick-Fil-A tour we did some more shopping at Marshalls and found some fabulous finds. Then we made our way into Downtown Atlanta and our first stop was the World of Coca-Cola. In here you can learn all about how coca-cola was started, watch a 4D movie, see the CocaCola polar bear, and taste different coke products from around the world. That was definitely the highlight. There were some seriously nasty drink flavors and some suprisingly good ones.

 Across the street from the World of Coca Cola is the Georgia Aquarium. Apparently it has been recently re-vamped. It is super nice inside and had some great exhibits including penguins, beluga whales, whale sharks, otters, and much much more. Mia loved all of the fishies and we even found Nemo! {a clownfish}

What a great day 2 in the ATL! Can't wait for Nicole to join us. She is enroute to ATL as we speak!
