Mother's Day weekend in Atlanta

It had been a little too long since I had a weekend with my family, so for Mother's Day, Kern and I flew to Atlanta.  My aunt and uncle live there and my parents and Gran Fran drove over.  It was the perfect meet-in-the-middle location.

We didn't waste any time--as soon as the plane landed we started having fun.

The boys played golf: Kern, Dad, Uncle John


For an early Mother's Day celebration, Gran Fran, Mom, Aunt Susan and I had lunch at the Swan Coach House.

I treated my mother and Aunt Susan treated her mother to a lovely meal where we were surrounded by beautiful roses.


Sisters: Marcia and Susan


Gran Fran and me



Throughout the weekend, we got to spend time with most of my cousins and their kids--it was so wonderful.

Kern, Dad and I took Carter and Brooks for a golf cart ride.  As soon as we got off at the neighborhood playground, Brooks didn't waste any time climbing into the driver's seat.  He was ready!


After a fun afternoon of playing, it was finally time to wind down on the couch.

"Dude time"


Kern enjoyed an afternoon of kayaking on Lake Kedron.


Mom made the most beautiful three-layer strawberry cake and topped it with fresh flowers.


The mothers cut the first piece!


Sweet Joella and cutie-pie Will.  

He and I bonded and had the best time playing together!


Gang's all here!

The weather was perfect all weekend--we spent a lot of time on the porch.


The best mommy!

The best type of Sunday drive!
