Parents’ Weekend in Atlanta

I think I have forgotten how it feels. For the first time in a year and a half, Sid and I will not have a child under our roof when we go to sleep tonight. Even crazier, we won’t have one tomorrow night either.

It is with mixed emotions that Sidney and I hit the road this afternoon for a weekend getaway to Atlanta. When you are so attached to your little girl, it is tough to leave her behind. But, on the other hand, to be completely honest, I am so incredibly excited for a special weekend with Sid!

Our time away from Myrtle Beach will center around an Atlanta Braves game. Tomorrow night we will visit brand new SunTrust Park for some Major League Baseball. The Braves will host home run leader Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers in a primetime National League contest. But we are looking forward to more than just the ball game.

Besides baseball, a visit to the Cheesecake Factory is in our future. We also look forward to exploring the Cumberland district of Atlanta, an area of the city we have never visited before. Some relaxation in the hotel is another small treat that we are looking forward to as well.

This trip will also celebrate the five years that Sid and I have been together. We have now spent the past SIX May 16s together and this collage shows a photo from each one.

So here we go! Time to have some fun with the wife. Thank you to my in-laws for taking care of Sloan, we are really thankful for this opportunity. Any prayers for safe travel would be much appreciated. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Don’t Blink.
