Fun Weekend

We had a great weekend to end Christmas vacation.  Upward Basketball resumed and Logan did an awesome job. Preston is a great coach too!

 That is Logan's basketball going through the net!

We traveled to Atlanta for a fun weekend.  We reserved a room at the Marriott Marquis Downtown Atlanta.  (Thanks to an amazing steal on Priceline!)  The boys loved the view of the city from our hotel room.
 They all enjoyed some swimming in the indoor pool.

 For dinner we ate at Hard Rock Cafe.

 The Marriott Marquis has the largest atrium in the world, 45 stories.  It is a beautiful place.
 These views are from our room on the 17th floor.

That was all on Saturday.  Our Sunday was filled with lots of excitement too.  We attended One Heart Church, where our friend Geral Spicer pastors.  We loved worshiping with his congregation and learned a lot from his message.  We enjoyed catching up with his wife and long time friend, Cindy, after the service.  After church we enjoyed spending some time with our friends, Rob and Katie and their kids.  We met their new girls, Claire and Louisa. Their youngest son David (5) and Logan played for a few hours together.  When they lived near us in Birmingham a few years ago David was really little.  I enjoyed seeing Logan and David play so much together because they really did not know each other much before. It was great to see Joshua and Andrew again and spend a little more time getting to know Elizabeth.

We then headed to Georgia Tech and watched some Women's Basketball.  The boys enjoyed the game.

 After the game we had to stop at the Varsity for Frosted Oranges!

We are using these long drives to complete the book we need to read for our adoption.  We have read 190 pages of our Connected Child book and have about 40 more to go!
