Fall Break

It was fall break for me and my sissys this past weekend, so they continued the tradition of venturing south to spend the weekend with me in Atlanta! Last year it was just my mom and Erika, but this year it was the entire family! Needless to say, we had a very full house... but it was so much fun :) In addition to a full house, we also had a very full weekend! The only time we spent in our apartment was to shower between plans or to sleep!
Atlanta Fish Market
We mostly just shopped and went out to eat haha but somewhere in between stores and restaurants Erika and I baked my dad a bday cake (his real bday wasn't until Monday) and we all spent an afternoon at the Georgia Aquarium. It was Mere's first time really exploring the city so we were excited to play tour guide!
Excuse my awkward lean...
Andrew was such a trooper all weekend!

The weather was AMAZING in Atlanta all weekend! We had the most beautiful blue skies and just perfectly comfortable temperatures. It was so nice that we took a little stroll around Olympic Park on our way to/from the aquarium.


Beautiful day downtown

We also got to celebrate my dad's 53rd bday on Saturday at an amazing little Italian restaurant in Buckhead and then went home to eat the delish Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake that my sister and I baked for him! I don't profess to be an expert baker by any means but this cake tasted like it could legit be sold at Cheesecake Factory! In my opinion anyway :) But I won't take all the credit - I was not responsible for making the crust!

Cutting into my masterpiece... anxious to see if the middle was cooked!
The cake was a success! And so was the weekend. As always, it went way too fast. The only thing that made saying goodbye on Sunday a little less sad was knowing that we will be home for Thanksgiving in just 5 short weeks! All I can think of that would have made the weekend even more perfect --- Buckeye and Browns wins! Oh well, such is the life of a Cleveland sports fan. Maybe next fall break!
