- winter wonderland -

here are more photos from our recent snowmageddon! we thoroughly enjoyed the winter weather, hopefully it won’t be another three years before we see snow again in atlanta.

- one more snow day -

as you have probably heard by now, atlanta was rocked pretty hard by a snowstorm this week. beyond the treacherous driving conditions, the snow was really fun and actually stuck around for a few days. here are some of our favorite instagram moments from the snowpocalypse! we will also post some non-instagram photos in the near future.

before you judge the south for such a traffic mess after only a few inches of snow, be sure to check out this great politico article covering all of the underlying factors involved.

- deepdene park -

we are very fortunate to have such beautiful parks in atlanta! one of our favorites is called deepdene park and is part of atlanta’s olmstead linear parks. it’s also right down the road from our house, which makes it even better. these parks were designed by frank olmsted, who also designed central park in new york city, prospect park in brooklyn, the emerald necklace of boston, the biltmore estate in asheville and the nation’s capitol grounds. not a shabby resume!

deepdene features a large field with a surrounding track, as well as 22 acres of canopied forest filled with creeks and bridges for exploring. it’s a lot of fun for both adults and children and a great escape from the surrounding business of atlanta.

- happy birthday gubby -

for gubby’s birthday, we had some cake with the kids before heading out to try the kimball house, the new restaurant in downtown decatur by the brickstore and leon’s full service owners. it’s in the old train depot across the street from the dq. the food was delicious, as were the cocktails! we are excited there’s a fun new place in such a beautiful old building.

check out their menu!
