If you are ever in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend visiting the aquarium. The Coca-Cola museum is nearby, as well as Centennial Park which had a concert going on at the time. We sat by the fountains and enjoyed the concert from a distance for free. We also went into the CNN building for a quick drink and look around.
It was storming when we headed to the airport to go home. A Cessna 414 was also there waiting for the worst of the storm to pass and departed just before us when there was a gap in the cells. We took off and once to 7,000 feet were above the clouds and it felt like we had entered a whole new sunny world. We took advantage of that time to take fun pictures with Lollipop, the GA Aquarium mascot we had purchased.

We received instructions to go direct EMI then the instrument approach to Frederick. Unfortunately this involves going past Frederick, go 20 miles out and then back in again. Luckily, we were able to find a hole in the clouds and cancel IFR and spiral down to land. A pilot friend watched us to this from the ground and said he got a bit dizzy watching us! We had just an hour to get Turbo before the kennel closed and got the airplane unpacked and tucked in in record time. We were exhausted and all smiles. So was Turbo when he saw us!
