Atlanta Trip 8/1-8/7

We are back from a fun-filled trip to Atlanta. We saw the new-and-improved World of Coke and checked out Shawn's new downtown campus (GA State) on Friday with my mom, Travis, and Jared.

On Saturday, Shawn and I enjoyed his ten-year high school reunion at Andrew's Upstairs in Buckhead with the folks from McIntosh High. Shawn's web-advertising and co-hosting were so successful that the informal committee put him in charge of the class reunion of 2017! At the reunion, I was more than a little out of my element, but it was fun to meet the people I have heard so much about and put together another piece of the puzzle that is Shawn's life pre-Ginny. We surmised that I was the only wife of an alumnus to attend; there were several husbands, but no other wives. It seems that Shawn got the jump on his friends in terms of settling down!

The rest of our trip was spent at the Butlers' place hanging out with Butlers and Donaldsons, playing in the pool, and showing off our baby. Charlotte enjoyed the pool only if we caught her in the right mood and the water wasn't too cold. At least she looked cute in her bathing suit! She had fun with her cousins JeAnn, Logan, Robby, Savannah, and Halle. It will be so much fun living near everyone come fall! A couple people asked Britt and me if the baby girls were twins, not because they look very much alike, but because they practically share a birthday!

Love the pictures and the update. Is Shawn going back to school?

Good job on getting all these pictures and experiences on to the Blog. You do all this AND keep up with yours and Charlotte's journals! You're amazing.

Instead of saying "Shawn's Life Pre-Ginny" we'll just say "P.G." So "You met my High School friends from back when I was PG." and "My life has been better now that it is no longer PG." see, it has all sorts of double-meaning!

Oh, and commenting back to Jason & Ginny...
Yes, I start my MBA program at Georgia State University in October! Look forward to a big sweet blog about that next month. Complete with maps and everything!

This is random, I know, but I linked to your blog through Jon and Jen Stagg and couldn't help but realize when I saw a picture of Shawn that we share family! I am Brittany's cousin and it was so fun to see pictures of Savannah and Halle on your blog. I haven't talked to Brit and Jeff in a while and was wondering if you could give me her email so I can get a hold of her. Sorry to bother you with it but thank you so much! Your blog is adorable!
