Last week was our spring break here in Memphis, TN. Now that the girls are older and both have more patience for car rides as well as more interest in seeing and learning new things, we decided to take a road trip.
It was 6.5 hours from door-to-door, and that included 3 stops. We stayed in a hotel that bordered Centennial Olympic Park, The World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium. On the drive home, we stopped in Birmingham, Alabama, to check out the McWane Science Museum, too.
All in all, the trip was a great time, and the girls can’t wait for our next adventure.

…on our way to Georgia. Our first day in Atlanta we saw…
After Centennial Park…
The next day we took in both the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola.
There was also a pretty amazing dolphin show, but no photos or videos were allowed.
That afternoon, we headed to Coke. I was impressed with how family-friendly it was and how much they built out the brand experience. Probably the coolest part was the 3-D video experience because along with the video, your chair moved and rumbled, air and water were squirt in your face and I even felt like someone jabbed me in the shoulder with their finger at one point.
And now for the Birmingham portion of our trip. If you aren’t from the South or don’t currently live in the South, you are probably thinking, “Alabama?!?” But I give tons of props and two thumbs up to the #ALLCAPSAWESOME McWane Science Center and it’s four floors of kiddie science stuff.
We also played with bubbles, pet some sharks and got to see an octopus and moray eel while there.
Next stop? Chicago in the summer. I cannot wait!
What vacations have you enjoyed as a family?
