Flat Smiley's First Trip

Our Flat Smiley has recently arrived home safely from his first trip.  At the end of last month, he went to visit the Neill family in Griffin, Georgia.  On the Resurrection Day, they took him to enjoy a family feast and an Easter egg hunt.  The family graciously introduced him to some of their favorite local attractions such as Atlanta Motor Speedway (1.5 mile race track), Stone Mountain (which has a carving of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, and Lt. General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson), and the Georgia Aquarium (the world’s largest aquarium featuring more animals than any other aquarium in more than 8 million gallons of water).  The family also took him to Chuck-E-Cheese and Toys-R-Us.  It was a sweet treat for Flat Smiley to visit Marble Slab Creamery; he brought home a napkin from there :) .  Flat Smiley had tons of fun with the Neill family during their spring break vacation.  They took him to Edisto Island in South Carolina.  He collected some sand and seashells to bring home.  On their way back home, they stopped by Paula Deen’s store and restaurant called Lady and Sons in Savannah and then Bass Pro Shop.  We thoroughly enjoyed reading the journal that the family recorded about their adventures with our Flat Smiley.  We are so thankful to the Neill family for their hospitality and kindness.  Flat Smiley’s first trip was truly memorable and filled with smiles
