Labor Day Weekend

What a fabulous Holiday weekend!  Mine started on Thursday when I got to pick up one of my best friends from the Birmingham airport- Allison Boone, lovingly referred to as Boone.  She was a college roomy, volleyball team-mate, and maid of honor at my wedding.  We had a wonderful time catching up on the ride home to Tuscaloosa while Luke, that perfect little buddy, slept peacefully in the back :).  We stopped for some sustenance at one of my favorite lunch spots in Tuscaloosa, Pita Pit- - it did not disappoint.
Friday morning we packed up and headed to Atlanta to visit my newly married sister Joy and her hubby Scott.  They live in an adorable apartment near the school Scott attends.  We played games and ate yummy fajitas my sweet sister prepared!  My other sister Katie and her husband Tim met up with us later that night too!  The next morning we all headed over to Piedmont Park where we met up with my cousin Laura and her husband Steve and some of our great friends Jeff and Andre and their sweet baby Jada.
If you are ever in the Atlanta area on a Saturday I highly recommend this beautiful park.  It had a super cute farmers market with live music and plenty of room to run.  I managed to scarf down an awesome bannana, strawberry, dolce de leche, and creme, crape- it was as amazing as it sounds.  We also picked up some delic homemade mango-peach salsa that is yumm-O! We will definitely be making a return visit to that spot.  Then we headed over to Atlantic Station to do some much needed shopping while the boys and Boone :) headed over to a sports bar to watch Michigan clinch the WIN over Uconn.  We finished the evening at another one of my favorite restaurants, California Pizza Kitchen and then finally headed home.

Sunday we had a catch up day where we went to church, lounged around, played a little b-ball, watched movies, and made a delicious vegetarian meal for Boone.  Monday we headed over to our great friends the Sandras' and enjoyed a lovely Labor Day meal complete with fried chicken (not for Boone :).

Sadly Allison had to go back home that night so we dropped her off at the airport.  It's always hard parting with such great friends and I already can't wait for our next get together.  After the bitter-sweet goodbye we headed back to T-town to join another party with the TCAT staff.  And... most definitely worth mentioning was the perfect I mean perfect weather!  Top 5 Labor Day weekends of all time.  Weekends like this remind me of how blessed we are.

I hope your Holiday weekend was as lovely as mine.
