I am not sure if spring break is going on in your area - but it is in FULL force here. Broxton had his one week, the brothers had theirs another, seems like the end of March and all of April is Spring Break city around this area! With that being said, I wanted to do a little bit of a "staycation" with the boys. Living in Georgia ALL of my life, I tend to take the local attractions for granted, but not recently!
We had the opportunity to go to Zoo Atlanta the other day and to say we had a great time was an understatement! We had a BLAST!!!! I was so excited to go and see the twin baby panda's, but Broxton got in his mind he wanted to see the giraffes the most! The older brothers were just excited to be going to the zoo. None of the "kids" had ever been to Zoo Atlanta and I hate to admit it, but I had not been in AGES, as in back when I was in school! (Not going to go into the exact number of years!)
We decided to head to the zoo and since I did not know where it was, we plugged it in the GPS. We were surprised to drive along and then BOOM - there was the zoo right there is the middle of Grant Park! Oh yeah, pretty neat to know that the zoo has been there since 1889. If you want to be amazed, head over to their site and read the history. (I think the way that Zoo Atlanta came to be is just pretty amazing!)
As soon as we entered Zoo Atlanta, we were greeted by a big group of Flamingos... There is something about flamingos that just always seems to mesmerize me whenever I see them - ANYWHERE! Of course, I had to go over for a few minutes to watch them and see if that draw I have always had was still there. *Yep, it was!!!

I hope if you are in or near Atlanta that you will plan to go spend the day at our zoo, I really loved it and can not believe it has taken me so long to visit. If you are planning your summer vacation - come to Atlanta and check it out! If you live here, plan a "staycation" and see what all is there for you to enjoy!
