Bodies in Atlanta and a Tattoo

Last Friday, Charles, Riley, George and I went to "Bodies...The Exhibition" at Atlantic Station in downtown Atlanta. The exhibit is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen!! Riley loved every minute of it, too. I'm glad she liked it because I was a bit worried that she might find it too graphic for her five-year-old brain.

Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos of the exhibit. If you've not been, or if you aren't sure what the exhibit is like, here's a video that shows much of what is on display (be sure your speakers are on)...

We had a great lunch afterward in Atlantic Station and then George took us to a great little shop, Liberty Tattoo, so I could get a tattoo I've been thinking about for several months now.

Rye and Charles watching me get settled in the chair.

Riley can't believe her crazy mommy.

Just after Bill finished the tattoo.

After the bandage came off.

All cleaned up.
This is the druid symbol for the holly tree.

I'll end with some random photos Charles took of Riley while he was playing with his camera settings. He's taking classes from the New York Institute of Photography.

What a nice pose.

Well, that didn't last long...

Now she's just plain goofy...
