Providence Canyon

There are seven natural wonders of Georgia, so we are trying to visit them all.  This one is Providence Canyon.  A really colorful fun hike with the kids.  We had a great time and it was nice to get our of town for a while.

There was a 1/4 mile hike down to the canyon.

Believe it or not, this is actually the trail.  It was really narrow in a few sections.

The kids' socks are now permanently orange.

Savannah's Birthday

We had a simple family birthday party for Savannah.

We started with pin the tail on the cheetah (Savannah chose the animal).

The we had an ice-cream cake.

Growing Peppers

We planted corn, beans, aloe, sun flowers and some peppers near the beginning of the season.  The peppers have done really well.  Here are a few of them.  We grew jalapenos, serranos, and tobasco peppers.  The tobasco peppers taste really good, but are really spicy.

Tabasco pepper plant is pretty colorful.

Fishing and playing in our neighborhood

Our neighborhood had a couple of nice large ponds / lakes.  The kids and I went out fishing and playing by our association club house.

All of the kids had their fishing poles, but Tucker and Savannah lost interest after a while and started searching for colorful rocks on the path.

Dogs always catch the kids attention.  Here is a neighbor that we met while we were out.

East Cobber Parade

We didn't have high expectations, but the whole family had a great time at the East Cobber Parade.  It definitely helps you feel like part of a community.
