Starting off with an exciting race to the airport, not sure if we would get there in one piece, we had to make an hour earlier flight. Alden’s bag was an inappropriate weight. We luckily made our flight, some of us had to sit in the emergency row. The flight was around two hours; it was very special for Zoe Marsh, because it was her first time flying. Arriving in Atlanta ,we had a fantabulous time at the CNN tour, Austin Homes conquering his fear of escalators and heights, on the world’s largest escalator of 250 feet. Alden was able to go Harry Potter on us when she used the editing techniques of the invisibility cloak (green screen). We got to see how the weatherman uses his green screen map, and the high tech ten million dollar studio. Then we walked to Centennial Park, and sunbathed, played football, but unfortunately the fountains were out of order, but we found an alternative coin pool to swim in. Kaitlin, Cole, Austin, Zoe, and Megan went swimming in the two-foot deep pond, but many others got thoroughly splashed. After an encounter with a python, most of us were able to fit in a nice workout at the hotel, while others like Zoe Marsh took a thirty-minute shower. We went out to a classic southern grill, and the girls rocked their dresses. After the dinner we all went to one room for some quality bonding over a movie and candy. It was a great way to kick off the week, and all of us are already bonding and feeling the love.
