This past Saturday we went to Forsyth Park to the Sidewalk Chalk Arts Festival put on by SCAD. They did an awesome job! This year was year #35 for them, but our first time to go. We will be back! There were lines & lines of sidewalks decorated all through out the park.
They had more than just sidewalk art-lots & lots of activities for the kids.
Crista, Addie Grace & Annabelle got to travel around the whole in 80 days & got their passport stamped, jumped on bounce houses(there were about 10 different kinds to choose from) and rock in a GIANT 2 sided rocking chair.
We took our lunch & had a picnic in the park & later in the afternoon we got a treat from Leopolds ice cream. It was our 1st time to have their ice cream & it was oh so yummy!
This one was my favorite
but here are a few more we liked too:
I also found the perfect spot for a photo shoot! I can’t wait to take my soon to be 4 year old back & take her picture.
Favorite Foto Friday-Flashback style!

If I can remember correctly these selfies were taken after a call from Tommy saying “I will be home in a few, meet me outside. Let’s go to dinner!”

Happy Easter from the Randall family! Our Easter celebrations started on April 12th with SUMC’s egg hunt.
Then we had a Toddler Tuesday Easter Egg Hunt. It rained & we had to do it indoors.
She has had some of the funniest faces lately. Who knew that opening an egg was such had work.
The very next day we had her Easter party at school.
Spring Break started after her Easter Party & on Friday we went to the mall with our neighbors to have a picture made with the Easter Bunny
We got up really early on Easter morning to get ready for church. Annabelle ate her 1st chocolate bunny(just the ears-she still has the rest left)
We celebrated our RISEN Savior at church. We had these yummy treats for our Sunday School class(note to self buy more doughnuts next time 5th & 6th grades love Krispy Kreme!)
We drove 2 1/2 hrs to Nana & P-Pa’s for lunch & another Egg Hunt with the cousins
Eli (4) Peyton (6) Annbelle (13 days shy of 4) Paisley is still too little to hunt eggs-she will be big enough next year! If you found an egg with your name on it, you got a GRAND prize! (they all 3 got fishing poles)
Very rarely do we ever have a family picture & I am sad that we did not get one yesterday. Here are a few of my favorites from before church:
We are tired today from all our Easter celebrations. Christ is Risen! I hope you will continue to celebrate our Risen Lord all year long.
Favorite Foto Friday- on a Saturday.
Happy Easter Weekend!
It is time again for Favorite Foto Friday! I have not done a lot of picture taking this week-boo! I have a few great ideas for some spring pictures for Annabelle. I hope I can pull them off!
Last Thursday we loaded up our car with some friends & went to Hodges Strawberry Farm. We have been picking here since Annabelle was still in a baby carrier.
I will let the pictures do the talking.
Annabelle, Addie, Crista & Coral (it was so hard for me to get a good picture of all 4) This was as good as it gets.
A fake smile but I will take it!
About 8lbs of berries Annabelle & I picked! They were oh so good. We will be going back really soon!
and this picture would be my favorite! I just love her expression here! Strawberries are her favorite fruit and she ate her fair share!

About 2 weeks ago, P-Pa added a new animal at the farm. He sent us a picture & told Annabelle she could name her. After a lot of thought, she came up with Rainey!
The last Sunday in March we went to meet her & take her some treats. Rainey is 8 years old & she is a rescue horse. Her owners did not treat her very nice & beat her in the face. She has been living with another family for about a year now, but she still will not let anyone touch her.
She will eat out of our hands & we can not wait till we can love on her! Annabelle really wants to brush her.
Rainey seems to like all the chickens & dogs. We watched her show off a little to the neighbors horses, Wilbur & Bella (that’s what Annabelle calls them even though they are both boys) Rainey enjoyed the apple slices we brought her but did not car too much for our carrots. Lucky & Joe did not mind and ate them up. I have never seen dogs eat carrots before-strange.
We helped P-Pa put the tin on the roof for her shelter. That tin was really heavy!
P-Pa also has 25 bittys! They are so so cute! We just love the baby chicks!
With new bittys & a new horse I bet we will be spending a lot more time at the farm 🙂
As I mentioned in my last post, we have been busy-busy around here. Busy in a good way, enjoying all the things that are keeping us busy.
Our church’s Easter Egg Hunt is next weekend. (I am the Special Events Coordinator for the children’s events) So, Annabelle & I have been busy planning an Egg Hunt! I am really looking forward to Saturday!
We have been collecting eggs, filling eggs & counting eggs.
Annabelle likes to help fill the eggs because the candy you put in the egg should match the egg. After a few dozen eggs I was able to help her mix colors. If you are at our Egg Hunt & get a blue egg with blue candy-it is probably an Annabelle stuffed egg 🙂
This week I am hoping to collect 500+ more eggs so that we will have just as many as we had last year.
Happy Egg Hunting!
