Callway Gardens

Granddaddy took our whole family (Mom's side) to Callaway Gardens for a Labor Day Weekend get-away. There were 17 of us, Dan, John P., Dave, and Kate were the only ones missing. We really had a good time, only a few hairy moments, which is pretty good with that many family members. After a long trip down on the backroads, Granddaddy does not like to drive interstate, and a even longer check-in process, we visited the butterfly exhibit. It was pretty but really, really hot. We let the kids run around outside of it and all watched the Bama game that night. The next day we ate a buffet breakfast and then we split up and some went to FDR's vacation home and Ginny and I got to spend some incredible time at the spa getting massages and pedicures (thanks Mom and Dad) Later we all spent the afternoon at the beach, and my child had an absolute blast. She lept running into the water full speed and flopping in. We also played in a jump jump and slid down an inflatable slide, ate sno cones, and watched hot air balloons fly over our heads. Then, all 17 of us went to the lodge for dinner that night. Some of the pics:

GO DHS!!

We recently took Caroline to Decatur High School's annual tailgate party before the first home football game of the season. She loved it and even Dan (who is NOT a DHS alum) had fun. Caroline got her face painted, ate dinner, danced to the band, watched the cheerleaders, got a balloon which she released, ate a sucker, got her picture thaken with the raiders, and played with all of her friends.

Where is Caroline????


Play Date

Caroline recently had a big night out/play date with her parents and her friend Maggie and her parents. Caroline and Maggie had so much fun together...they actually played and interacted the whole night. We went the Bridgestreet and it was perfect because it was a beautiful night and there was actually so much for these little girls to do.

We started at the fountains....

Checked out the toy games.....Rode the Carousel.......
Played in the bubbles.........
Ate some pizza and some bright blue chocolate "brick"......
And danced the night away to the outdoor band......
