Labor Day

We had a great Labor Day! Shawn's best friend, Blake, and his wife Saleela came to Atlanta for the weekend on a visit from D.C. I have heard all about Blake, and Saleela has been a friend since I married Shawn - but until this day, I had never met them!! I can tell you this - THEY ARE FANTASTIC!!! Friends for life and I can't wait to get together with them again. We had such a great time. Here are some pictures to go along with our day.

We happen to park right across from each other in the parking garage....made it easy to meet up!!
We met at the Atlanta Botanical Garden's. It was so pretty and the weather was gorgeous - it was just a fun, relaxing day! That fountain is blown glass - it was so cool looking!
Family picture minus Adalyn....I needed to get her out of the stroller, but I never did.
These lily pads were so cool!

The botanical gardens had just started a chocolate exhibit - which is always fun to get free chocolate!
The girls got to decorate their own chocolate cupcake and finger paint with chocolate syrup.  We also did a chocolate egg walk.  They had fun!
Another family picture without Adalyn....she was asleep in the stroller
I did like the picture of Shawn and I - I thought it turned out well.
Cool chocolate sculptures
These were blown glass pumpkins, fruit, vegetables and water lilies. They were so cool!!
For our AZ family - this is some type of cactus - that sprouts like once a century - and we just happened to see it. (YES - I realize that I should apologize to Shawn, Blake & Saleela, because I don't remember the name of the cactus.)

The girls playing in the water - yet again. They had a lot of fun!

Thanks Blake and Saleela for coming to town and letting us hang out with you on Labor Day - we had a blast!!  It was so fun to watch Shawn and Blake!  It had been 8 years since they had seen each other, but it was like yesterday!!  It was GREAT!
