Hoosier visit

Last week my parents and little sister came to visit from Indiana. My dad had a business trip in Georgia and, since it was my sister's spring break, he decided to make a family trip out of it. It was fun to have them here and really fun for them to see Graham since he was only 2 months old last time they say him. 
We wanted to go to the aquarium while they were here, but so did the rest of Georgia so it didn't work out so well. When we showed up on Monday, there was a line to get in about a mile long and it was FREEZING outside so we opted to not wait. The Coke museum was the same so we left and went to the bodies exhibit at Atlantic Station. I've been wanting to go for awhile and it ended up being really cool. The most interesting part was seeing the fetuses (is that how you spell that?). I can't believe how small Graham once was. 
They wanted to eat at a really southern restaurant so we went to The Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle. It is a southern buffet. It definitely had some interesting food. I got to try fried green tomatoes and potato pancakes (which were delicious) and collard greens (not delicious). Pretty much every fried food you can imagine was there, along with a few foods you would not have imagined being fried. 
I'm so glad they were able to come down Graham of course loved all the extra attention!

I love the last pic of your parents and graham, can I get a copy? i like to pretend they are my mormon parents.

Also you look super HOT in your pic, and super tiny!! I hope you don't win our bet...I'll be pissed.

So my cousin just got back from his mission to Indiana and it turns out he knows your parents! All I said was "We have a friend whose parents live in Kokomo. I can't remember her maiden name right now, but they moved there a few years ago from Oregon or Washington." Immediately he said "The Parkers." Funny, huh? I guess your dad was ward mission leader while he was in their ward.
