// Lately

As summer of 2014 is almost to it's last stretch and sadly bid our farewell, here's what's life has been to us. Well some of it. My son took his first flight lesson and he truly enjoyed it. Yes, he flew that tiny airplane for 30 minutes with the exception of taking off and landing. Leveled, turn and handle this tiny bird. He told me just like his Xbox game at home. 
With an occasional bump here and there due to air pockets and my stomach flutter, it is so peaceful up there ! What an experience for a 9 year old boy. 
Once we landed he asked me, "mommy, are you scared"? No, not at all darling. Really, not at all !!!
 I am more scared to ride this ferris wheel than a single engine Cessna airplane. Mostly because my husband shakes the basket. I looked down, my legs starts to shake. 
 This is the most delicious snow cones we have so far. It's so good I wish we all got one for each. 
 One of those movie night's they have during summer. We are line dancing. My son was shy to go down there by himself so mama has to do what mama should do. 
 Labor day was so hot, gave him an excuse to enjoy summer even more. 
 At the World of Coca Cola- Atlanta, me sampling some drinks from other parts of the world that Coca-Cola makes. My highest sugar level of all time. With all the sugary drinks that day, water was my choice of drink for dinner. 
 This is called the Vault where they hid the secret recipe for Coke. To add even more curiosity for the visitors, no one was allowed to touch it, get near it or step on the red line. For it triggers the alarm systems and the security will come rushing. The room where all the visitors were was only opens for less than 10 minutes no more no less otherwise it sets off the alarm, loud siren, red lights flashing and the door automatically shuts. Hmmmm, I wonder if the actual recipe was even in the Vault at all? Although I must say that it is not just the front facade of an actual safety vault but it really looks legit. Whether it is true or not, that is a good marketing strategy for their visitors. Keeps the people curious.
 This is one of the coolest features inside the World of Coca-Cola Atlanta. Standing next to a frame and your face comes up through bubbles. Just like inside a Coke bottle. 
I will be totally cheesy here, he's my Yin to my Yang and I really don't mind hanging out with him :)
Never would have imagine, my summer, our summer without our little darling boo....
Smile, live a little and I hope you have a fabulous day !
Thank you from the heart
xoxo
Sam
