"Rubber Ducky, You're the One..." ~ Ernie

Festivals, food and perfect weather...
So this past weekend Atlanta was full of action packed fun! There was a plethora of choices: Sweetwater 420 Festival; Dogwood Festival; Atlanta Hawks playoff game; some sort of Geek conventions; and Atlanta's all time favorite ~ FREAKNIK! :) David and I of course chose the safest of them all, the annual Dogwood Festival! It's always a great time walking around Piedmont Park and looking at all of the vendors beautiful art work from metal workings to paintings to pottery.

Here's a beautiful photo of my love stuffing his face with a crab cake sandwich

And on the serious side

One reason I wanted to troll through all of the booths was to find something unique for our little ones on the way. We did not find a thing until our last leg of the festival. How cute is this picture!?! We are going to put it in their bathroom. New bathroom should I say... (see later)

We found a new home!!!
That's right, we have a new home! We are so excited about this place. It is up GA400, about 20 minutes from our home now. It is closer to David's office and is at the end of a beautiful neighborhood. The home backs up to an 11 acre lake in the middle of Dunwoody! Who knew?! It's a 3-4br/3ba, full basement, two car garage home with a dock in the lake. And did I mention perfect? Some rooms are a bit dated, but there is the possibility of a purchase for us in a couple of years, so we could always renovate. For now we are going to rent because we felt like we shouldn't rush into anything with such a short time find the house for our future family. Hopefully things work out for us because this home is perfect for our two little boys and their daddy! Fishing at the lake, chasing the geese in the back yard and finding frogs (HUGE frogs) in the coy pond... Hopefully dad will not partake the last two! ;) There's also plenty of room for another baby if we decide it's the time in a few years. In the coming weeks I may be able to post some pics of the home if we get to go back before our move in date of June 1... Which is soooo upsetting. I will be 8 months preggers with two cribs in boxes, an empty nursery let alone an empty home and no decorations for their nursery because I am not able to set anything up/know the lay of the land just yet! We may get lucky and the present tenants will move out sooner so we can move in when this house closes. Fingers crossed!

And now, for your viewing pleasure... Ernie from Sesame Street ~
