Labor Day

We are in Monroe, LA...I am so glad we decided to take this road trip. We have done and seen quite a bit. We are trying to go out on Jen and Kim's boat, but the weather may hold of back from doing that. We got here yesterday afternoon our plan is to leave in the early am...Jason likes driving when we don't have to fight traffic, I have to agree.

We had a great time in Atlanta. We ventured out on the public transportation system, Marta. It was a good idea, or so we thought. We were gonna go to the aquarium, but from the stop is was about a 5 mile walk. I definitely did not wear shoes for that! So we spent more time on Marta than we did in the city. Oh well, it was a first for Jason...public transportation. Saturday was a much better day, we went to a spa and had an hour couples massage...I must say if you haven't had the chance to do that, I highly suggest you do. It was AMAZING!!! After that we decided to go to White Water, Six Flags water park. Talk about being a couple of kids, we had a blast. We went on several slides, one of them was called the Cliff Hanger...I was so scared. It literally was a 90 ft. drop and for about 60 ft. it was a straight fall down...did I mention I was SCARED to death. Needless to say we did not go onto the Cliff Hanger again, but we can say we did it:)
I almost forgot, we went out Saturday night with Erica and one of her friends and you will never believe what we did. Jason not only danced with me and really well I might add, but he and I karaoke. Jason has NEVER karaoked, me it has been a few years. So this was a huge thing for Jason! We had to convince him the people would never see us again, it was so much FUN!! I have to say that was probably the best part of our trip...we both just let loose! We sang Picture, by Kid Rock and Sheryl of the most over sung karaoke songs ever, we mostly did it for Gracie she loves that song and we knew the words so that made it a bit easier on Jason.

In the next few days I will post some pictures and possibly the video of our world premiere of PICTURE:)

So you think you will never see anyone from that night of karoke huh??? I was there!! JK..but I do live in the ATL area and ran across your blog a couple of weeks ago when other bloggers were doing "Pigtails for Gabi". Your daughter was so precious!! I have a sweet 6 month old son named Jacob who has DS. He had heart surgery June 21 for a VSD. What kind of surgery did your Gabi have?? I wish I had of known sooner that you were passing through town it would have been great to meet you guys. You have been in my prayers since I have been reading your blog and will continue to be. Thanks for sharing your precious baby girl with us, she touched many lives that you don't even know.
