At the beginning of December, Jason had a meeting in Atlanta so we took the opportunity to visit Great Grandma and Grandpa. While there, we attended a lovely brunch for 89th Grandpa's birthday where we caught up with family. Grandma and Grandpa brought us to the botanical garden where there were millions of Christmas lights on display. We all walked through the evening with twinkles in our eyes. The boys planted ten dozen tulips for Grandpa and took a swim in the cold pool in their pants. And Jason talked us into going to the Coca-Cola museum while he was in his meeting. Here is my honest assessment....the museum was strange. First we entered a locked area where we listened to a spiel about Coke, then we were allowed to enter the "Happiness Factory" where we watched a surreal movie about creepy, eyeball-less puffballs with giant lips and feet. I'm not sure how that brings about happiness, but oh well. We were then allowed into the museum where we actually learned a little about the history of Coke and watched the bottling process. In the room with the vault that stores the secret recipe for Coke, the presentation was so loud that I was sure that the vibrations in my chest were going to give me a heart attack....NOT recommended for anyone with heart problems, though there were no warning signs to be seen. The grand finale waited in the final room where we could sample different Coca-Cola soft drinks from around the world. The boys' faces were hilarious as we took tiny tastes of each. It was a very interesting glimpse into pop culture.
