This is our new favorite hang out spot! Especially when the weather is too cold for the park.
I think they are worn out!! How cute is this?
And here's our little cheerleader! She loves banging on the seats!!!
A visit to the aquarium again. Isn't she crazy beautiful?!?!
I did Sadie's hair last Friday. I did flat rope twists up into one puff! I LOVED how it turned out! It officially lasted a week! Completely thrilled with that.
I think they feel comfortable at the aquarium, don't you??
MLK Jr. day parade in Atlanta! What a wonderful day to live in this city!
Sadie sporting her adorable faux frohawk. I LOVE doing her hair! She had so much fun watching the parade.
This was the closest we got to a family pic, thank you Owen for taking it!!!
HOW COOL! Not sure what group this was but they sang and stomped and there were lots of races amongst them...do you see Ebenezer Baptist Church behind them? This is THE church that Martin Luther King, Jr. himself preached at!
Oh man...I love this picture. I am quite certain that I have the best husband alive. He also is the best daddy alive. I am not partial at all by the way.
So you might be wondering...we were 2 of only a dozen other white people at the parade. As sad as I am that more of my Caucasian friends don't come to these parades, some comments from other patrons are less than encouraging. One guy was trying to sell me a picture of MLK so he hollered at me, "You look like you come to these things all of the time." What do I say to that? I wanted to yank him by the ear pulling him aside to remind him that my children could feel the stares and his comment did not help them feel like they belong here. Matter of fact, us being here was the complete reason MLK Jr spent his life preaching about love, acceptance and equal rights. Blake and I were so thankful that with each year that we go to the parade, or maybe as we mature, we feel more comfortable and sweat less ;)
