Strawberry Picking

Back in May we had the chance to go strawberry picking while my mother-in-law was in town. The kids had a blast and filled their bellies with pounds of strawberries I'm sure. Natalie wasn't much help at picking because she was too busy nibbling on all the berries. The day we went it was actually really cold in the late morning, but luckily it warmed up a little throughout our time there.

Atlanta Bucket List

We've been living in Georgia just over 10 months now, and I'm finally starting to get a footing with directions and street names. In Iowa roads run north/south and east/west for the most part, and its a beautiful thing that I clearly took for granted. Here roads look spaghetti on a map and I usually have no clue what direction I'm heading in. Also I'd love to meet the person that decided it would be a great idea to name ALL the roads Peachtree. Peachtree Street, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, Peachtree Parkway, Old Peachtree, Peachtree Corners just to name a few! So confusing.

Anyways there are definitely tons of things that we love about this area and being close to all a big city has to offer. So I started a little list of places we want to visit this year.

-Martin Luther King House
-King Center
-Lake Lainer
-Atlanta History Center
-Piedmont Park
-Zoo ATL
-Stone Mountain
-Capitol Building
-Fernbank Museum Of Natural History
-High Museum of Art
-Atlanta Botanical Garden

And here's some other recommendations if you're visiting Atlanta.
-Ponce City Market
-Georgia Aquarium
-Krog Street Market
-Centennial Olympic Park
-Atlanta Belt Line
-Westside Provisions

We are still discovery everything to do here, so please let me know anywhere else you'd add!
