Anyone eaten at the @bgburgerbus? Situated in historic Ball Ground next to the railroad tracks, eating lunch in this bus was a fun adventure in itself! There was a bit of a wait, but they offer $1 off beer and wine while you're in line and the line moved quickly. We had an amazing booth in back of the bus that the kids thought was the coolest thing ever and they kept asking when the bus was gonna take off. Since I don't eat red meat I went for the handmade veggie patty which was made up of more than a dozen veggies and served with chipotle mayo in a pita. Incredible!! Jared and Gavin approved of the hot dog and burger and we can all attest for the onion rings and fries! Next door, there's a gazebo with built-in tables, a picnic table in the shade and a public park if you get the food to go. Save time to visit the downtown shops. Such a cute town!
Jared and I used to live in @virginiahighlandatl down the road from what is now @poncecitymarket and it was so fun bringing the kids to our old stomping grounds today! After showing them our old neighborhood and first date spot, we parked at PCM for lunch and craft cocktails in the Food Hall, strolled the @atlantabeltline and grabbed @kingofpops to cool off. We did some shopping in @parisonponce (which has a gorgeous floral mural) and on the way back, the kids loved watching the bikers come off the Beltline and drop their bikes off at the free valet. There is even valet for dogs at Barking Hound Village so they can get pampered (and even a bath) while you shop! Already planning our next trip back with our bikes and to take a trip up to the rooftop for boardwalk style games and mini golf. And I need to go back without the kiddos because there's so many amazing shops I want to explore!! . . . #poncecitymarket #parisonponce #beltline #atlanta #virginiahighlands
It's so easy to give some old furniture a total makeover using chalk paint. Went by @brushstrokesbymaryanne yesterday to pick up some materials to paint and stain our kitchen table that needed some TLC. Swipe left for before and after! It's so easy to use chalk paint (they sell Annie Sloan which I think is the best on the market) and it doesn't require all the prep work (and mess) of typical paint. Mary Anne is so helpful so come by with a project in mind and she and her team will guide you on what you need and how to make it happen. And they offer amazing workshops including one where you transfer photos onto wood! . . . #shoplocal #cummingga #forsythcounty #52forsyth #diy #chalkpaint #workshops #girlsnightout #antiques #anniesloan
Every Tuesday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. is family night at CFA at @collectionforsyth . Twinklz the clown was there last night painting faces and literally making everything with balloons a kid could dream of. Twinklz made a princess wand for Teagan and sword for Gavin and painted their buddy's face like a tiger and it looked incredible. She would be such a fun edition to a kid's birthday party! . . . #forsythcounty #cummingga #52forsyth #cfa #chicfila #collectionforsyth #facepainting #balloonartist #birthdayparties #familynight #twinklz
One of Gavin's birthday gifts was an Atlanta Braves Kid's Club membership which is currently available for $20! He redeemed it at today's game for a drawstring tote, Braves jersey and VIP access to run the bases after the game, plus his Kids Club passport is packed with coupons like buy one get one free tickets and a $5 voucher to Hope and Will's Sandlot. There are still 5 home games remaining this season so come check out the new stadium and all the fun things to do here with kids! More ideas on what to do and where to eat at SunTrust Park is on the blog.
Mother daughter dates call for @jenisicecreams and shopping at @avaloninsider.
These sweet baby cows near our house just may be the cutest additions to FOCO. If your kids are obsessed with moo moos like mine, it's opening weekend at @warbington_farms and taking a hayride to feed the cows is among the things to do!
