An Afternoon on Ameilia Island
Hi! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We went to German school this morning, and now we are hanging out at home. It is freezing cold today in Atlanta. I don't mind though. As soon as I walked in the door I put on my cozy pajamas and turned on the fireplace. I even took a little nap! Then I watched a movie called Truth with Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett which is about a news story that was reported on 60 minutes about Dan Rather and his producer Mary Mapes. They ended up losing their jobs. The movie was pretty fascinating and had me thinking about how much truth is really in what is reported in the news. On another note, I think the children are happy just to hang out at home today too! The girls just watched a couple shows on Netflix and played with their dolls before I finally made them practice piano. Addy lost her first tooth last night, so the tooth fairy left her a couple dollars under her pillow. She is doing cartwheels in my bedroom at the moment It is one of her favorite places to do them because she has enough space. She has been begging to get her some gymnastic bars. I am on the hunt to get her some second hand. New including the mat, beam, bars run about a thousand dollars, Anyway, about Amelia Island, we went there about 5 weeks ago on our way home from Orlando. We stopped and had lunch at Barbara Jeans. The food is fantastic!!!! It is as southern as you can get! I had the chicken fried steak with cornbread and green beans. Then we spent some time wandering through the old cemetery and historic district. If you love old homes than Amelia Island is eye candy. The Spanish moss and coastal harbors don't hurt either so I am sure we will be finding our way back to Amelia Island again someday.
