Day 158: Piedmont Park

I went to bed ridiculously late last night, and because we had to get up relatively early to try and get away to Piedmont Park for the morning and be back in time for lunch and James' nap, this morning was a bit tough.

Piedmont Park was gorgeous. It's the Central Park of Atlanta apparently. It had a really huge dog park, and some lakes and a playground. Most importantly, it had a big fountain the kids could run through.

Everyone had a great time playing in the fountain, which was the last stop at the park before we turned around and headed back to the car.

I'm really loving how green and leafy Atlanta is. I realised today what I really love about Chris and Briana's house is it feels like it's in the middle of a forest. Looking out the window from the upstairs bathroom, all you can really see is trees. Lovely, straight and tall trees with big green leaves. Not quite as nice as a redwood forest, but pretty close.

The girls played "makeup over" after lunch, and then Briana took them out for frozen yogurt while James napped. After James woke up, Chris and James and I ran some errands. The girls had all gotten back by the time we got back, and were playing in the front yard.

I called a bunch of my friends while I wasn't having to entertain Zoe and caught up with them. It's good to be in a more conducive timezone for catching up with people.

I managed to get Zoe to bed at a more normal hour tonight, because we need to be up pretty early to get to the aquarium in the morning.
