Winter Break

The girls have the week off for winterbreak so I took a week of vacation too.  We checked into the Westin on Sunday afternoon and spent the afternoon and early evening swimming in the indoor pool.  We had sandwhiches and chips in the room and watched Ferris Buller's Day off before going to bed.  On Monday, President's Day, we woke up and went back to the pool for a couple of hours.  When we checked out, we thought we were heading home, but Daddy took us on an adventure.  We went to the Varsity for lunch and then over to Piedmont Park to play for the rest of the day.  Peyton has so many memories of the park from when he was growing up.  We were surprised to see the new parking garage.  There are so many changes at the park, but it's a beautiful place.  It reminded me so much of being in Central Park.  Next year I want to take the kids to Washington, DC and to New York.  They should be plenty old enough by then.  This time, Destiny spent the night with Grandmother Tingle and is enjoying her alone time at Grandmother's house.  I hope it is still just the two of them.  She needs to spend some time with one of her grandmothers alone.  She thrives on one on one time and she doesn't get much of it around here with all of the girls fighting for attention.  I am stealing my own time with Peyton this week....taking him away to North Carolina.  I don't want to have to fight for one minute of his attention from the four prettiest girls in the world.  The last picture is of the house that my grandmother lived in on Waldo Street in Atlanta.
