We had a busy visit to ATL - but it was wonderful...time with family, a trip to the aquarium, play date with my high school friends, braves game (thanks for the night out Lindsay!)...and then we finished off our days in Atlanta with a pedicure for me (more importantly, an hour to sit and read my book - painted toes were a bonus!), and a few rounds of golf for Brent! We were both in need of some time off so it was really enjoyed.
Then Brent and I took the kids down to Jasper on Thursday morning for a long weekend. Nina and Big Daddy joined us Thursday night and then Peyton/Ann/Addison came down Saturday around lunch. We had a great time. Lots of swimming in the lake; the kids loved the boat; Avery tried to fish; and eventually, they both loved the 4 wheelers. Griffin was stone-faced and serious when riding but he cried if you didn't take him on a ride!
Avery turns 3 tomorrow and Addison turns 2 next week so we celebrated the girls birthday while they were together. Aunt Ann made yummy cupcakes and we had birthday hats and candles (both per Avery's request!).
Addie gave Avery a suitcase of "Fancy Nancy" dress up clothes and she has been wearing them ever since. We were able to con her into sharing an item or 2 with Addie!
The grand finale for our trip was the 26th annual Shady Dale Rodeo!!! Mom/Mike kept Griffy so that we could take Avery. She loved the horses and cows but not the "scary men" - rodeo clowns! She and Addie managed to stay up until 11:00 PM!!!
Now it back to life, back to reality!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our week! Thanks to all who were involved! We enjoyed our time with everyone!
