Summer is here

We had a fabulous weekend this past weekend. It was the kind of weekend that really lets you know that summer is here. We have had so much rain and cloudiness lately, that we really needed a bright, sunny weekend. We spent as much time outdoors as possible.

It started out slow, Judd had to work late on Friday night, so we just hung out and ate pizza after Charlotte went to bed. Saturday morning we took a trip to Serenbe. Serenbe is a community south of Atlanta, close to Peachtree city that is striving to be a self sustainable community. It is all new development, houses cost around $500K. It sits on 900 acres, has a farm, stable, town, and 100 miles of walking trails. It was beautiful. There was a farmer's market going on that we walked around, then we explored the town a little bit. We started to hike on the trails, but Charlotte was not in the best of moods, so our outing was cut a little short.

Saturday afternoon Judd had to work, which meant cancelling some plans. But, we headed to Decatur square around 6pm for dinner. We had a yummy dinner at Raging Burrito. After dinner we walked out onto the square. It was a "Concerts on the Square" night and everyone had their blankets and chairs spread out on the square listening to the concert. All of the kids were running around like crazy and dancing - Charlotte joined right in and loved it. We left around 8 and headed to Bruster's for some ice cream. A great summer night.

Sunday I used my Spa Sydell gift certificate that I got for Mother's Day and had a great afternoon of pampering. I had a massage and facial. I had never had a facial before, and it was FABULOUS. If you've never had one, treat yourself sometime.

Because no post is truly complete without a picture, here is Charlotte exhibiting some great table manners.
