excuse #1

Okay so the hotel we were staying in all week had free wifi, but the way they can afford to offer this service apparently is to not actually make it available. The network was unavailable pretty much the entire time we were there. Plus they gave us the wrong password when we checked in, so it took until Wednesday before we could try to log in with the right information.

Fascinating stuff, right?

Anyway, we had a successful and fun week in Hotlanta. Marlo and I spent most mornings napping and lazing about, before venturing out into Centennial Olympic Park in the afternoons. They have a fountain water show set to music that is sort of reminiscent of the one at the Bellagio except way suckier.

I took Marlo and Husband to the Georgia Aquarium - I had been before, about four and a half years ago when I bought my wedding dress in Atlanta. It's such an impressive place that it's hard to be nonchalant, even as the veteran in the group. I was happy to share it with my little family. Marlo was a big fan of the Belugas, who both swam over to check her out. Whales and dolphins like babies. I'm no marine biologist but I can tell.

Oh, did I mention buying my wedding dress four and a half years ago? It was our fourth anniversary a few days ago. We did not celebrate and there were no gifts exchanged. I expect that will be remedied this weekend.

I forgot to tell you about Marlo turning 4 months old. Suffice to say it happened, she grew, I can't believe how big she's getting, yadda yadda.

Burglars, go watch TV for a minute. Okay, now that it's safe, I'll tell you that we're going on an epic adventure of a trip, two weeks away with no swing for a baby who only likes to sleep at night in a swing. Hurray! Nothing like ripping that band-aid off and getting on with life! Oh, and did I mention we're crossing three time zones? And the last time we did that she didn't sleep for more than an hour at a time all night? What joy.

I'll try to blog my adventures. Considering I'm going to be stuck in a hotel room all week with a napping baby, I have very little excuse not to.
