Oh how we love tradition

September 2, 2014

Our beloved Labor Day weekend was blessed yet again. We love our trip to Callaway Gardens.

This year we were joined by college friends who have just moved to Atlanta. God bless them, they are still in transition, and yet happily joined us on a little road trip and day’s adventure. Everyone has a buddy!

Our kids were delighted to have experienced a tethered balloon ride; something new to them.

Papa has been up in a free flight balloon a few times, but ironically has never commented on how hot the propane blasts are up against your face. Sweet Michael accompanied them, but chose to sit on the bottom of the basket to avoid the heat. Katie said it was the greatest experience ever. I love her enthusiasm over new experiences.

After the balloon ride, it was all about the beach and Robin Lake. The kids had a great time and really is the only time they play in such an environment.

Thank God daddy got in the water. Elizabeth had a great time playing with daddy.

These two girls have had so much fun together. Clare can’t seem to remember her name, often giving her an alternate name. At any rate, they have laughed and played pretend for three days straight. Clare is going to have serious withdrawals when the sleepovers and carefree days are less available.

Check this out!!! This was truly the greatest new-to-us invention we’ve witnessed. What an amazing water sport. Still not certainly sure how it works, but really fun to watch.

The Blue Morpho butterflies did not disappoint. We were so lucky to have been visiting the butterfly garden during this particular festival. The house was FULL of these gorgeous butterflies.

The gardens are also full of natural butterfly attracting plants. I especially love the flowers at the Sibley Center.

The Sibley Center is also generally our last stop. It’s the perfect place to play and they have the best climbing trees also.

There is sure to be some catch and frisbee and football throwing also.

This 6-year-old makes a great daycare leader. She had the girls doing all kinds of things! Simply precious!
