As for the aquarium, I think he loved everything. I knew he would since he loves the 75 gallon aquarium here. He's always saying he wants to see his "fishies".
It was great because we had some real communication with him while we were there. He would point and say "see that" when he wanted to see a tank and he would sign finished when he was ready to move on. The two pools where you can actually can touch the animals were probably his favorite. He loved touching the anemone and would have stayed there all day if we'd let him.
Naturally, he was amazed by the Beluga whales and stared at them for a long time.
The Georgia Aquarium has a tunnel you can travel through while having fish all around you. He was so quiet when we went through it. He just kept looking around at all the fish. It was pretty special to watch.
He found the sea horses really amazing too. One of the few times I was able to catch him smiling in a photo while we were there.
It was so wonderful to get to see his expressions as he discovered all the different animals and fish. I think I enjoyed watching him more than anything!
While we were in Atlanta, we also visited the World of Coke museum. I love coke as many of you know (even though I'm trying to give it up) but I'd never been. Even when we lived in Atlanta, we had season passes to the aquarium and it's right across the street from it but we never went. It was fine. I liked a lot of the old coke art and memorabilia they had. Also, you get to taste 65 Coke products from around the world. Some of them are terrible! But I discovered I really like the Coke products sold in Africa. Who would have known??
Normally, I don't let William have any junk food/soda; however, I decided he could taste some coke while we were there. What better place to try your first coke than the World of Coke?? Obviously, he did not like it.
It has been great having nearly 3 weeks off. I know that it is going to be really hard to leave my little boy Friday and go back to work :( It makes me wonder why I ever went back to work. At least Bill is off so William will be with him that day!
