Atlanta, Part One
We took at trip to Atlanta over Labor Day weekend to visit Adam's sister and her family. We pulled the kids out of school early, Grandma and Papa Don came to our house, and then we loaded up the van and all headed south. We arrived in Atlanta around 7:30 Eastern time, and Aunt Adrienne had dinner ready for us. All the cousins were happy to see each other and equally happy to dig into dinner.

Emily and Her Cousin Anna

The Cousin Crew

On Saturday morning, we celebrated Katie's birthday.  Katie loves everything about older people (she even has her own cane), so she decided to have an "Old Lady" birthday party.  The first activity of the party was lunch: grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, chips, beans, etc...  I don't think that was "Old Lady" specific, but it was good!

The Birthday Girl with Gray Hair

Katie asked everyone to dress up for a fashion show, and she served as the judge. Her negligent Aunt Lauren completely forgot about this request until the last minute, so I only had time to throw something together for Emily. 


Grandma went all out.  She didn't place in the judging, but I think she was robbed.


The winner of the competition was Uncle David.  This is a future glimpse of Uncle David and Aunt Adrienne in 40 years. :)


After the fashion show, the kids enjoyed wheelchair races.  Uncle David found a wheelchair at Goodwill for Katie's birthday present, and she was thrilled.  He marked off a course, and the kids formed teams.  This was fun for all!
 
Andrew was ready to race.


The Winning Team

The first half of our weekend was filled with fun and laughter!  Stay tuned for more Atlanta activities!

I have to say that that is the most UNIQUELY themed birthday party I've ever seen!

But you know, I rather LOVE it!
