Hot hot hot in Atlanta, Georgia

I thought I'd better post this before the month of July is over!

Our friend Mark moved to Atlanta several years ago; he told us the nickname of Atlanta is Hotlanta. Whatever the connotations, it was hot, hot, hot, temperature-wise, over the fourth of July weekend.

Our relatives happened to be in Atlanta and we had planned on taking them to see the Fourth of July fireworks at Stone Mountain. Having just arrived from Southern California, they wanted to relax and get acclimated to the heat and humidity so they declined. We immediately switched to Plan B, which was to attend a ballroom dancing party at Mark's friends' place in the suburbs. It was our first time at such an event. What fun! Great music, fabulous food, and great companies. It was such a joy watching these graceful dancers whirled and tapped around the dance floor. Check out the video and let us know what you think!

The dance party ended early. Guess where we saw the fourth of July fireworks? At the Home Depot parking lot at nearby Roswell. What a neat little town! We'll be back.
