Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

The Week in Review

I am going to add pics later on tonight but wanted to go ahead and share with you whats going on. If you are reading this blog, say a prayer for an unspecified prayer request for my family. It would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, I have posted a more serious message on the adoption blog. Feel free to check it out!

This week started out with me working Monday night. Family came into town Tuesday and stayed at a hotel a few miles away.

So, Tuesday night, Michael and I met them at the hotel and we had dinner over at Smokey Bones. We talked, we laughed, I gave out gifts. We went back to the hotel, chatted and went our ways. It was so good to see the kids.

Wednesday morning, I went to the hotel and met with the family and discussed our plans. We headed out to the Aquarium and had a pretty good time. The kids really wanted to see the penguins and by then, the 2yo had had enough. After this, we walked down the street and went to the children's museum which is sponsored by Sesame Street. I cant believe they charge parents and adults 11 dollars to enter but for the kids, it was so worth it. They had so many activities for the kids and it really kept them busy. It was fun. Afterwards, we went back to the hotel, the the kids swim and decided on Bugaboo Steakhouse for dinner. The kids liked the animals on the wall that talked.

Thursday, Michael had off so both of us went to the hotel to get ready for the exciting day. Six Flags. As you can see by the pics, everyone had a good time. Maw Maw stayed at the hotel with Owen but we still had a good time. Janie does not get scared of fast rides, but Seth waited with Aunt Amy for a few. Back to the hotel to pick up Maw Maw and Owen and we went to Chili's for dinner. After that, back to the hotel and all of us went swimming and then Michael and I left.

Friday, today, involved Amy getting up early and heading over to the hotel. We went to Cabbage Patch hospital where a young lady got a special prize from Paw Paw. After that, we drove through Helen, stopped at Wendy's and had a picnic. We went to a farmers market on the way home and after a break drove south the Newnan where we met other family members for dinner.

I have been sooo tired each night. usually I have energy even after staying up 24 hours, but I cant seem to stay awake past 1030..Geesh, the kids will wear you out. Tomorrow we will go to the hotel and say goodbye. I have tons and tons of pics from this mini vacation and hope to get some on here in the next hour. I hope to see them again soon!
Lucy has enjoyed doggie day care this week and will come home tomorrow!

Here are some pics!! Too tired to do more!
