Family Day at Zoo Atlanta + A TrulySantuary GIVEAWAY


On Saturday we joined seven other families from my mom's group for an outing to Zoo Atlanta. It had rained on Friday and I was nervous that it might spoil our plans but thankfully it didn't. It was pretty chilly but in the sun it wasn't so bad. The zoo trip was the first time most of the husbands/dads had an opportunity to meet each other which was fun. The baby line up:
Benjamin is the youngest of the bunch and the only one still in an infant carseat + stroller but we still wanted to include him in the photo even though all you can see is his little head peeking through. Haha!
You may remember me featuring this You are My Sunshine bodysuit in Simply Smitten back in January? Well we recently received the coolest package from Ron & Beth of TrulySanctuary and took this trip to the zoo/opportunity to wear our new TrulySanctuary tees. They are so soft and the graphics are such high quality. We received so many compliments! I wore my new heather royal blue Take a Hike t-shirt and Ben wore his heather black Bill Murray graphic tee. I think everyone should have a Bill Murray t-shirt. Seriously, who doesn't love Bill Murray? I grew up loving Curly Sue and just this week I watched another favorite, Groundhog Day. The best. Just like these tees. I will definitely have to get more. You already know I have my eye on the B is for Bike (and Benjamin!) bodysuit but I'm also digging Don't Hate and No Hablo. Hilarious!
>> I love my boys! <<
Does anyone else see the resemblance?? Bwahaha!
There were so many great exhibits. The lion was very cool and we loved the pandas and red panda but I think it's safe to say that this baby guerrilla was mine and baby Benjamin's favorite! He was adorable and I seriously wanted to roll around and rough house with him.
After we had been at the zoo for a couple of hours the majority of us headed over to another Atlanta hot spot - a restaurant called Six Feet Under, about a mile and a half from the zoo.
Neither Ben or I had been before and both really liked it. Our group was seated up on the rooftop patio. It would have been perfect on a warmer day but we were all freezing in the shade. The food was great though! I ordered fried green tomatoes and fish & chips. I tried hush puppies and Atlanta's Sweetwater Blue for the first time.
After lunch we said our goodbyes and per a friend's recommendation, my little family took a stroll in the sun across the street in Oakland Cemetery. I took lots of photos which I will share later this week. For now I'll leave you with a really cool giveaway! You can win your own awesome TrulySanctuary tee! There are lots of ways to enter and the giveaway ends on Thursday at 11:59 EST. A winner will be announced on Friday. Good luck!
