The Georgia Renaissance Festival is still happening for a few more weeks! We took our very own little princess last weekend and had such a great time. The weather was absolutely gorgeous - unlike last year when we went in 95+ degree heat! We walked casually through the kingdom, meeting jesters, lords, and ladies along the way.
Amelia tried her hand at some archery, took a photo with the king and queen, and laughed at the Mud Show. If you are looking for something to do around Atlanta or the North Georgia region, take a drive to Fairburn. It's a royally good time!
And this weekend, May 18th and 19th? Is Pirate's Weekend! Perfect for the little tough guys in your life.
This key unlocks the next chapter in our lives.We closed on our new house this week! It is our forever home. Amelia will have sleepovers here. We will take prom photos on this front porch. Here, my baby girl will primp in her cap and gown with nervous excitement before graduation. This home may hold another pet, another child. This home will see us grow even more. It will be our haven, our safe place.
We face a tremendous amount of packing and moving ahead, but I look forward to getting settled again. In a few weeks or months, I will finally sink into the cushion of the couch and take a real moment to look. A quiet reflection to say hello to our new home, and all the next steps it will quietly observe.
Amelia is an extremely sensitive and loving child. She loves to snuggle and give surprise kisses. She has a sweet heart and a creative mind, always making up stories, coloring, or singing. Sometimes all at the same time!
Nearly every picture Amelia draws is finished off with a big " I LOVE MOMMY I LOVE DADDY" across the top of the page. She creates masterpieces and presents them to us like magical treasures.
We have had a lot of rain lately! Soccer games keep getting canceled, and we are bored of sitting indoors and staring at each other. Last Sunday, we decided to do something much more exciting - we visited The World of Coca-Cola in downtown Atlanta!
Amelia had never been there, and it had been several years since I've seen the place and tasted the drinks as well. So we were all excited for a fun day out. Even in rain.
So we added another Disney on Ice show to our checklist! Amelia and I took some fun friends to the Disney on Ice presents Worlds Of Fantasy show this morning, at the Arena at Gwinnett Center. Over the past two years, we have enjoyed Disney on Ice presents Rockin' Ever After and Disney on Ice presents Dare to Dream at Phillips Arena in downtown Atlanta. The Gwinnett Center arena was nice, although a bit of a long drive for us. But it seemed mediumer than Phillips, and all the seats were good. Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy features Mickey and Minne, the cast of Cars, the Disney Fairies, The Little Mermaid, and Toy Story 3.
