Weekend Visit to the ATL

The wifey and I went up to Atlanta to visit the family last Thurs-Sunday and had a great time!

Uncle Chris Pileup!  Aww...
My sister Jen had a new baby girl, Colette (below) on June 7th and we used that as an excellent excuse to take a long weekend getaway.

Very alert for only 2 weeks old!
My sister Michelle and her husband James were also there with niece Hadley and doggie Maddie, so we got to see everyone all at one time, which is always fun!

We went out to dinner at our favorite Italian place close to them (Ippolito's) shortly after we arrived on Thursday evening.

During/after, but nothing the long sleeve bib can't handle!
We then stopped by the Splash park that just across the way...

Friday we did some playing outside and had a party with some more relatives Friday evening.

David mowed the lawn and Max always loves to "help" daddy mow the grass.

Saturday morning Michelle/James/Hadley and dog Maddie headed back home, luckily she had her new airplane toy we got her, cause she wasn't being a happy camper before that, from what we heard. 

Saturday afternoon the wifey and I headed to Chateau Elan Winery for a little mini-getaway within the larger getaway!

We had a gift certificate from our recent 10 year anniversary that the wifey's sister/brother-in-law got us and it was only 20 mins from where my sister lives.

That was a really great place.  We did a winery tour at 5pm with some sampling after, purchased a few bottles to take home and did dinner at their Irish Pub Restaurant and then played some pool and had some more wine in their lounge.

Then on Sunday, we headed back to Jens to hang for a bit more and I was left to watch Max solo for a bit and we had some outdoor water fun.  It might not be normal activity to let Max play on/in his water table with his pajamas on, but that's what fun Uncle Chris is for!  Check out the video at the bottom to see just how much fun he was having!

Be sure to check out the rest of the random pics and videos below. Good times!

Sorry on the small videos, I apparently don't know how to properly upload videos in a larger/zoomed in size on Blogger.  You can click the enlarge button to get a better view.
