Hope everyone had a fun labor day weekend. I would like to thank Karen over at The Graphics Fairy for the feature on my coastal mirror. That was exciting to come home and see that.
We did absolutely no laboring. We hopped in the car and took a drive to Atlanta to visit son #1 and son #2. I thought I'd take you along on the drive with me. It was a beautiful day and the clouds were amazing. It's a long post so if you have to pee, go now.
Henry and son #3 took this position for most of the ride there.
The first leg of the drive from Niceville to Atlanta we take hwy 331. I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with this road as it's the fastest way to get to the beaches. We pass through a lot of teeny tiny small towns. Try not to blink. You might just miss them. First up is the town of Florala. A litte bit of Florida and a little bit of Alabama all mushed into one tiny town. The truck was for sale. Wouldn't that be fun to drive while hunting for junk?
My favorite tiny town to go through is the town of Brantley. It's the front porch capital of the south. There is a sign that says so. One cute porch after another. You should see how cute they are around the holidays. Some may be a little blurry, I couldn't snap fast enough. You can make them bigger if you click on them.
I love this green door!
They were having a boiled peanut festival in Luverne. Southerners will come up with any excuse to have a festival.
After getting through the hoards of people trying to get to the boiled peanuts we got stuck behind this guy. I'm guessing the spoiler on the back is just to make him look like he could go fast. He caused the vein on hubby's neck to bulge just slightly.
We passed the Smart factory. All the smart people of the world come from here.
We passed a lot of this....
Not sure where the chicken is going but apparently it's the finest.
More beautiful scenery....
Are the clouds not amazing?
Finally we hit the interstate. We can move it along at a quicker pace now.
Until we hit a bunch of these. Auburn fans heading to the game. I took this shot for Linda @ Coastal Charm. We should have timed it better as GA Tech also had their first game just ending as we hit Atlanta. Oye!
But we made it fine and found this cushy bed waiting for us at the Double Tree. I loved the orange and green together. And their cookies are like a bite of heaven.
We had to go eat here. Everyone loves it here. If you can't find something on their humongo menu then just go home and eat a bowl of cereal. I had the crabmeat melt with sweet potato fries. Yummy.
And look what just happened to be across the street from our hotel. All of these stores all conveniently located in one shopping area. How nice of them to do that for me. I may have picked up a thing or two or three.
I squeezed in just a little bit of time on our way home to stop here. It was so insanely packed with people. It was like a herd of cattle moving through the store. I didn't even get anything. I picked up the new catalog and #1 son can go back for me. It was crazy to think I could just browse quickly here.
And this is how the trip home looked. We all pretty much slept. So, what did you all do over the weekend? Was there labor involved?
