The Coleman Hill Slide

Saturday, May 9th, 2020

When I asked Kimberlie what she wanted for mother’s day, she requested a good hamburger. The best burger in central Georgia is at Ocmulgee Brewpub in Macon. Unfortunately they are closed on Sunday and they aren’t offering dine in right now. So today, I called in an order and we took it up to Coleman Hill and had a picnic in front of Mercer Law – my old stomping grounds.

A few years ago, some local group added a concrete slide on the hill. Rilianne and Mackenzie loved it and Kimberlie and I gave it a try as well.

Kimberlie and I left work early today to join Rilianne in PAC time. PAC means “Parent and Child” and is a pre-K requirement.  Rilianne iced valentine cookies and we were basically there to clean up the mess!

I took the day off of work today to make it a five day Christmas weekend.  Kimberlie had to work so I took the kids to Macon to Bass Pro Shops. Its become an annual tradition to visit their Santa Wonderland and take advantage of their free photos with Santa.

Christmas Lights in Macon – Year 3

Saturday, December 21st, 2019

This evening, we rode up to Macon to see the downtown Christmas lights, Santa, and the reindeer.  This is becoming an annual tradition and its nice to see the lights grow each year.  This year featured a gigantic light brite!

Chick-Fil-A Santa

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

We still have more than a week to go until Christmas and we sure have seen a lot of Santas this year!  Tonight we went to our local Chick-fil-A, where Rilianne saw Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Santa Cow. She also made a craft.  Meanwhile, Tristan was having his own Chick-fil-A experience — orientation.  More on that later.
