One Spoiled Dog

A Request from Carolyn

Carolyn asked me to make a cover for her Bible and a matching bag.
 The bag has a pocket on the inside and the outside and also two pencil holders.
 There is even a pocket inside the cover for a little note from mom. :)

Stage Races

The Stage Race kicks off the cross country season every year.
We begin the hot day with a coffee coolatta!
 This is a 3200 (2 mile) race with a stage every 15 minutes.
 It was so hot!!!
 Luckily Christian had one of the earlier stages.
 I was very proud of my runner!
 His finish time was 12 seconds slower than his goal, but it was still a race PR.
 Good job, boys!

He's No Scarecrow

Coleman had an MRI today (nothing to worry about, just part of a routine check!) and we have confirmed that he does, in fact, have a brain. :)
And a pretty cute one at that!

Dream Cars at the High

Jim has been dying to see the Dream Cars exhibit at the High and we finally got there today.

A little workbench project from 1947
 This concept BMW is made of FABRIC.
But my two favorites (that Jim didn't bother taking photos of) were the Electric Egg and the first minivan!

Following the car exhibit, we wandered around outside and participated in the the kids' art program.  (Don't let Christian fool you-he is only "helping" so that Carolyn would finish faster!)
Further evidence!
Jim and I were very content on a bench in the shade.

Sunday Afternoon Fun at the Food Truck Park

After church we went to the Atlanta Food Truck Park for lunch.
This was Jim's first time!
We sampled several new trucks: Christian had crab cake sliders and Coleman had a jerk chicken wrap.
 Carolyn had a crepe monsieur.  Jim had Floribean wings and I tried the jerk chicken nachos.
There was live music today and we listened while we ate.  The trip would have been perfect if there had been any breeze!
