Braves Game!

Today I went to my first major league baseball game! How exciting! The weather was really nice, though I was a little hot in my shirt and tie. We watched Atlanta's team, the Braves, play the Houston Astros. The Braves lost, which was too bad, but we still had a good time. Going to a baseball game sure was a lot of fun! I love baseball--it is the American pastime, after all!

Zoo Atlanta

Today I visited Zoo Atlanta. It is a great zoo with lots of cool animals. Here are some photos from my day. Can you name all the animals in the photos?

And here is a bonus photo of Kate pushing me around in the stroller:

Phipps Plaza

This afternoon, I went to Phipps Plaza. There are a lot of fancy stores at that mall! It is a fun place to window shop. It is a nice mall for walking as well. Here are some photos ...

Here I am on the grill of a Bentley. A Bentley is a very fancy car--but, honestly, I don't see what all the fuss is about.

I hear this is a fancy store. I didn't go in.

A little music appreciation ...


The store was already closed. Not sure they would have allowed us to take a lot of photos anyway ...

Window shopping at Armani
(Actually, this is the door ... but you get the idea.)


And ... not quite as fancy-schmancy ... but here I am in front of the Hanna Andersson store. They have cute clothes for kids ... or so I hear. :o)

The Governor's Mansion

I have driven by the Georgia governor's mansion many times. Today we got a few photos. The governor of Georgia is Sonny Perdue. He is a Republican and has been the governor since 2003. The governor's mansion is where the governor lives. When a new governor is elected, he or she will live here in this same house. It is located on West Paces Ferry in Atlanta. The governor's mansion sometimes holds special events--like a Christmas tree lighting ceremony or an Easter egg hunt. Tours of the home also are available on certain days. It is a pretty nice place to live, don't you think?

More from Downtown Atlanta

Hi, Friends! While we were in downtown Atlanta yesterday, I saw a few other big landmarks/famous places. We walked around after our aquarium visit, and here are a few of the things I saw ...

CNN! Did you know that CNN (which stands for Cable News Network) is based in Atlanta? It sure is!

Here I am in front of The World of Coca-Cola. It is a special museum about Coke. Did you know that Coca-Cola is headquartered in Atlanta? I love Coke--do you like to drink Coke?

The American Cancer Society--this organization does great work!

Here I am in front of an entrance to Centennial Olympic Park. Did you know that the 1996 Summer Olympic Games were held in Atlanta? They sure were!

Another shot of me and a park entrance.

While we were taking photos downtown, someone else was doing the same! I made a new friend. This is me and Flat T.J. If I remember correctly, Flat T.J. was visiting Georgia from New Jersey. It is always fun to meet new friends!

The Georgia Aquarium

Today I went to the world's largest indoor aquarium: Georgia Aquarium! It is located in downtown Atlanta, and it was awesome! You would just love it--there are so many different kinds of fish and other creatures that live in water. Check out all these great photos!

Do you see the shark? I'm down there at the bottom of the tank--see me?

Here's another shot of me and the shark!

Having lots of fun!

Check out this scary-looking crab! I am glad he was on the other side of the glass! hahaha!

Look at me with the stingrays!

Hey, is that a hammerhead shark?

What an exciting outing!

The Library

Today we visited a nearby library. Karen and Kate had to return some library books. The library is a great place. You can learn so much there! Kate likes to go to story time at the library, too. Do you like to go to the library?

In these photos, Kate is holding me in front of the library sign. I think I may be getting laminated soon, as I am getting a little beat up riding around in Karen's purse all the time. A little extra protection will be nice. :o)
