Senoia for Two

Surprises are the very best when they are completely and totally unexpected.
I mean, sometimes you can kinda figure out surprises, but when you are completely shocked, it's the best. :)

Cody and I took a day on my Spring Break to have a day date together.
We dropped Harper off at school, and hit the road.
He didn't tell me where we were going. I kinda assumed we would drive around, find something to do and just have fun together. But he had a specific place in mind, and I was just along for the ride.

That's what's really great about him.
Throughout our relationship he's always planning fun little random trips, and it's fun just the two of us no matter what we're doing. 

After driving about an hour and half, we start passing through this cute little town and he stops.
He asked me if I noticed anything.
You sure?
Yeah, just some metal wall and houses....OH.

Metal wall - really, really long metal wall - town inside metal wall - gate with security tower to get into town with metal wall. 

It was Alexandria!

Any Walking Dead fans out there??
Alexandria, the fictional little town surrounded by a metal wall to keep all those zombies out!
And the little town of Senoia right outside?
That's Woodbury - part of the show too!

How cool, right!?

I was shocked and excited.
We parked the car in this perfect little southern town, and just walked and looked at this set, this town that we've seen SO many times on TV in real life. It was pretty incredible. 

We spent some time being typical Walking Dead geeks. 
We even went into the Walking Dead store - AND - say Rick himself walking around town. 
(Just kidding - some guy pretending to be Rick, but literally looked exactly like him)

We ended up eating lunch at Nick and Normans - Norman Reedus' restaurant downtown.
After lunch we did some shopping around town, found the cutest little alley way, and just enjoyed the day together before heading back to pick up our girl.
