The Coke Museum

A couple weeks ago, Jamie and I invited Arri and Joel to spend the day with us down in Atlanta. After church, we met up at our house to head downtown. We rode Marta in, which was a fun new experience for everyone but Jamie, who'd done it before. Actually, there's nothing too exciting about riding Marta, but it was nice that no one had to drive and we got to observe some of the really interesting characters who use public transportation. Here's a couple pictures of the amazingly long escalator we took up to street level at the end of our ride.

We went to the Coke Museum which was smaller than I thought it would be, but still fun. They had some really cool old Coke paraphernalia. The picture below is Jamie, Joel and Arri checking out some of the cool stuff. And a shot of the old vending machines, which I thought were pretty cool.

Here we are in our awesome classes before the 4D show. I'm still not really sure what it was supposed to be about. But we looked pretty good in the glasses.

This one is Jamie and Arri playing a game in the museum. I don't think either of them understood the rules. They just wanted to push the buttons.

The best part of the museum was definitely getting to taste all the crazy Coke products from around the world. There is one drink called the Beverly - a soda from Italy - that apparently no one likes. Jamie got a picture of Joel's and my Beverly faces.

After the museum we walked through Centennial Park. The wind was so strong that day we were getting blown over.

These are hard to see, but I tried to get a couple pictures of the damage that has yet to be repaired from the tornado. Several of the hotels still have broken windows patched up with tape and plywood.

Before heading home, we had dinner at Ted's Montanta Grill. It was a fun day! I hope Arri and Joel enjoyed it as much as we did!
