Bebe let Marion play with her jewelry
Always a surefire way to make her happy!
And I got sweet, sleepy Raleigh smiles
Because you can never have too many pictures of a man holding a baby 🙂
We also had time for a playdate with one of Belle-Mere & Grandman’s friends and her two little kids
Not that we ever need an excuse to visit Piedmont Park
But having friends to play with
And leaves to enjoy
Certainly added to it
And those that know me from my Atlanta life will know just how proud this picture of her rock climbing makes me 🙂
Daddy on the slide!
Eliza Jane has finally gotten over her suspicion of the swings
Although she remains suspicious of group photos
No better ending to a day at the park than lunch at The Varsity!
Complete with a fried pie, of course
That is one satisfied baby
With room for one more bite of pie, naturally
The grandparents also treated us all to a horse drawn carriage ride through the park in the evening!
It was so much fun we couldn’t capture it in a photograph!
I promise you, it was a lot more fun than this! (I just couldn’t resist posting this picture, as horrible as it is. It’s just a perfect summation of a moment in the life of a toddler.)
And then mama had to get creative! We did a lot more walking than anticipate and Eliza was tired (and heavy) so I used my pashmina to make a wrap for her. Babywearing FTW!
Why yes, we did feed our kids gelato at 10:00 p.m.
Because you can’t visit Atlanta and not visit Paolo’s!
And on our final morning, breakfast with Bebe
Where Eliza learned to drink straight from the syrup bottle
Which made her super cooperative for pictures! And the drive back to Mississippi, haha!
