Weekend in Albany (not New York)

Last weekend we drove down to Albany, Georgia, for my cousin's wedding. It was beautiful! They had it outside, which was risky in late November, but it turned out great. Of course, AM had a great time running around with her cousin Frances, who is 2 1/2. We couldn't get too many pictures of them because they stayed in almost constant motion, as evidenced by these final pictures...

Also, while we were in Albany, we all took AM (and Otto, though he stayed in the pumpkin seat) to a park on the Flint River. It was a fabulous park, and the playground was perfect for AM. The park is adjacent to the Riverquarium, so the "theme" of the park is turtles. In addition to the very large turtle to climb on, there are also river/turtle-themed mosaics throughout. Also, there are bigger-than-life xylophones that AM and her daddy enjoyed...nothing like making music for the entire park to hear!
Giant turtle! Groovy mosaics!
Jungle gym! A roller-slide!
Giant xylophones!
Favorite thing that happened this week
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We had a great Thanksgiving "feast" as AM called it with lots of family. AM was pretty good about trying lots of different things, but by far her favorite thing was deviled eggs. I think it's pretty strange that a three-year-old likes deviled eggs, but since then she has even asked for them for breakfast! Ick.


  1. Hey Alice! I'm updating my neglected google reader and thought I'd see how y'all were. Hope all is well!

  2. It was risky to have the wedding outside in November, but we took that chance...and I'm so glad we did!! We couldn't have asked for better weather. I'm so glad that y'all could make it!!
