We woke up this morning ready for a busy day of work. We knew today would be an exciting one, after talking extensively with a CASA representative who told us they had ready at the trailer site for us. When we arrived at the trailer's location, we saw two large white tents, a table of breakfast food, a makeup station, and many girls and the CASA reps eagerly waiting our arrival. There was even a news channel there to film the day! Allyson's friend Kelsey from the Prudential Awards showed up with the rest of her family to help us throughout the day. Kelsey started a project called Bands4RAINN, which raises money for survivors of sexual assault. She had a blast and did a great job helping the girls to find clothes throughout the day. The girls had a lot of fun choosing their items, and we enjoyed working with all of the kind and amazing girls during their shopping appointments.

After packing up the trailer, we headed out to explore the World of Coke in Atlanta. We had so much fun tasting the flavors from all around the world and choosing our favorites. We highly recommend going to the World of Coke, it such was a great experience!
