Girls' Night Out: Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Last year the girls in the family went to Garden Lights at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  For some reason I couldn't make it...probably sick and pregnant.  I was really excited to go this year.  And Eric and I decided that even though it was going to be a late night, that Evie could go, too. I'm glad we took her.

My mom and sister, Evie and I took off during Atlanta rush hour (yeehaw!) for the Gardens.  I am so glad we chose a non-peak night AND went early.  

The gardens were magical. Such a fun night out.


 They serve drinks and snacks, like hot chocolate with a little something-something extra and I had a glass of champagne with cranberries.
 I was glad we had Evie in the stroller, though next year I'll probably have her walk and put Maggie in the stroller. Or skip the stroller and wear Maggie.  It was too chilly to bring our little Mags since she was still recovering from her post-flu cold.
 I had a lot of fun playing with the manual settings on my camera to get some different "looks" with the lights.
 Our city is just so beautiful at night and even more magical with the garden lights.
 Evie REFUSED to pose for any pictures. So I had so sneak in this one of her watching the train :)
 It would be the perfect date night spot, but it was just as fun as a girls night out!


These glowy lights were synced to music and changed color with the tunes. Very fun. We could have watched these for hours. It was fun to dance with Evie and watch them change.
After the Garden Lights we drove to Hob Nob  right outside the park for a quick dinner before heading home.  Evie Girl was fast asleep.  She couldn't stop talking about how much fun "Big Girls Night Out" was.  And that she got to have a hot choc-o-late.  Looking forward to next year!
