Most people know that Atlanta has tons of things to do.  As a child, I remember taking our vacations as trips to Atlanta.  You name it, they might have something somewhat like what you are looking for.  I am so blessed that we live here now and that I am able to take my children to different things around the city.  Recently we were able to take the day and enjoy ourselves at the Georgia Aquarium.  If you have never been before, you are in for a real treat. If you are familiar, you know how much fun there is to be had!!!  I like how the Aquarium is laid out.  The easiest way for me to explain it would be to say it somewhat resembles a spider.  You have the center of it all (where you can sit and relax, enjoy food and now they…

Let's be real here. Most times when it rains people start to complain.  I admit it, I do. It is hard getting a 7 year old that wants to run around in it and a baby under a year old in and out of the car in the rain.  Not even mentioning the fact that I really don't enjoy being soaking wet.  Here is the thing though... when did we start hating the rain?  As a child, we loved it. (Farmers still do, in moderation!)   One of the latest books to join our ever growing library is Puddle Jumpers.  I am SO GLAD that we received this, as it reminded me to enjoy all of these moments!!!  Seriously, it is really fun and it is FREE!!!   What isn't to love???

Lucky for me, I don't have a skink.  At least I don't think!
I had to look up on google to see what a skink was to tell you the truth.  It is a lizard.  (Did you know that before I just told you?)  I just love all of the "there was an old lady" books.  Yes, I have to sort of read it with a sing - song voice and that is fine with me. There is just something so fun about these books.  We were sent one about an old lady swallowing a skink and after learning what a skink was, we were good to go.
I thought it was a cute book and perfect to add to any growing library.  Kids (and adults) of all ages will enjoy the cuteness of it!  What all does she gobble?  You have to read to find out!!!!

Last week I posted about the Swedish Easter Smorgasbord that was happening at Ikea.  Today, I want to give you a quick recap.  Obviously it is over already, but at least you will have a better understanding for their next event. Come to find out, they have around 4 of these type buffets each year!
First of all, they close the restaurant down early for the day so that they can get things decorated and ready.  They had a big sign out there letting everyone know.  You can purchase the meal day of, or in advance.  I was surprised, they had a line going with people buying their tickets then... but also a good amount of people that had ordered their tickets in advance and were ready to go chow down.  Sign letting you know what was…

Plans for spring break?  I know some people plan trips, some plan staycations and some don't plan anything at all.  I am not one to judge,so don't worry about that here.  I have recently learned that some places have "mini camp" type events planned for spring break that is basically a sneak peak to their camps they offer during the summer.  While I LOVE the thought of that, as well as the thought of sending Broxton to a day camp of some sorts, lets just be totally honest.  It is not in the budget.  Remember, we have a new baby!!!!   That is fine with ALL of us,as we find ways to make the most out of our summers as it is!  I did want to share two camps that I recently learned about in case you were looking f…

We all know how crazy and hectic life gets. It seems like its even busier when you have children, well at least that is how I feel these days.  Add a second one to the mix and oh my goodness, we feel busy even when I know good and well that we aren't! Busy days are always going to be a part of life, but it is nice to know that companies like the Ovations Brand of restaurants ( Old Country Buffet, Ryans, Hometown Buffet and Country Buffet) have family nights planned.  Know what that means?  Dinner and fun (shhhh and education too!) while enjoying time as a family! This spring they are featuring a book character I loved as a child and it is one that Broxton is starting to enjoy now....  Amelia Bedelia!  She was always so f…
