The Market

On Monday everyone was home because it was Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  I had been reading about a new shopping and eating place in Midtown, so we took a trip to check it out.
The Ponce City Market used to be a Sears Roebuck store. They fixed up and turned into a unique place to go.  It was a busy place and lots to see. We wandered all around and checked all the different places out.
We ate lunch from a burger place and then the guys had coffee.
The day was windy and cold, so we bundled up and braved the weather to go outside.
We followed the path to the Beltline.

It was a fun afternoon out and a very interesting place. We definitely want to go back in the spring and summer when the weather will allow us to explore a little more.

Southern Snow Day

The weatherman had been forecasting a chance of snow for our area this weekend.  Thursday and Friday it was all rain, but finally Friday evening, a few snow flakes appeared.
                                 The girls went out for a few minutes to run around and play.
Rebecca went to bed excited for more snow in the morning and woke me up before seven. She was ready to get outside.  I made her wait until nine, and then I bundled her up and sent her out.
Sadly it didn't snow much over night, so there wasn't a lot to play with, but they had fun anyways.

               Neighbor friends came over to play and then all these girls came inside for a playdate.

Photos From My Phone Friday

Happy January!! This was the first full week of school for the girls since they went back after Christmas vacation and it felt like a long week.  All of our usual activities are back on schedule and I seem to being having a hard time adjusting.

We did celebrate New Year's Eve and the girls both stayed up until midnight.  We played games and ate lots of snacks and it was fun.
At midnight we went outside and banged on pots and pans. I am sure our neighbors with the baby loved us :)
                                                Lots of play  dates and friends over to visit .
We ventured to the library and Rachel finally got her own library card! The girl is a book worm and she was pretty excited... she can check out 75 books at a time!

We all went ice skating one afternoon and this was the only picture I took. Rebecca is getting better at skating each time she goes, but thankful for the skate-mate to help her out.
Last weekend, Raphael and I went to Chateau Elan for a cooking class. There were three other couples and we all had our own little cooking station.  It was interesting and our chef, Michael, was super nice and very patient.
We got to keep the lovely hats and aprons. The menu was mussels. duck, and cheesecake. I had never eaten mussels or duck before, but it was good.
                                  It was a lot of fun and we would try it again in the future.

And that's about it. Monday is MLK Jr. day, so everyone has the day off and looking forward to sleeping in !
