Labor Day Weekend 2015

We had a busy Labor Day weekend and did a bunch of fun stuff, but still had a little time to relax.

Saturday night, we went to Atlanta to celebrate our anniversary.
I picked a restaurant called Einsteins and the food was so good. We were able
to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. 

Then we drove down the street to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to look at a special event they have going on this summer and fall. It is called "Light in the Garden". And each night at dusk thousands of  colored fiber optic lights turn on all around the gardens.

It is really hard to capture in a picture, but it was beautiful. This was a "forest of lights" and all the lights changed colors. Really pretty to see and walk through and get an up close look.
I was surprised at how many people were at the gardens to see the lights. At Christmas time, they have a display with Christmas lights, so we might go back with the girls to see it this year.

Sunday we went to church and then we headed over to Six Flags Amusement Park. It had been a couple of years since we had taken the girls, so we went for a day of fun.
                                                                 Don't they look excited!
Rachel and Rebecca planning our next stop while we waited in line. We rode a couple of the smaller roller coasters and had lunch together.  Rebecca is not quite tall enough to go on the big roller coasters yet.
Raphael and Rachel went off to ride the big rides and I took Rebecca on a few more of the smaller rides. We went on the train and a fun balloon ride, she was in love with the balloons.

We had a great time at the park and headed home to get ready for Monday. I didn't take a single picture on Monday.   We had our friends the Curry family come over for lunch and just ate and talked while the girls played.  Then Naomi and I picked up another friend and we went to see the movie War Room.  Good movie and strong reminder of the power of prayer.

And that was our weekend!
