I'm not sure what the weather is going to do tomorrow, but it turns out that dd has a make-up Spanish class. So I don't think we'll be able to hang out. Next week: hope for sun and warmth!

We're headed to the Sweet Apple Elementary playground this afternoon if anyone wants to join us! We won't be getting there until around 1 (another Spanish make-up!)

That Pirates Cove things sounds cool! How was it, did you go Lula's Mom?

Any gatherings in Metro Atlanta anytime soon that would be good for an 18 month old?

We did go! It was pretty good, the kids really loved it. There was a lot of sand... and a couple of incidents where kids got shot at close range with a ball cannon. Those things should really be locked to point up, but you can aim them anywhere, including at your small friend who's innocently building a sand castle nearby. Nobody was seriously hurt, but if it was my place that's what I'd do. We'd probably go more often but it was far! It took at least 40 minutes.

I was just talking with one friend about doing a hike this Friday, so that probably would be too much for your little one, right? Next week we will likely be back at a park, so if you're around please do come.

Hi Valarie! Yes, we still meet almost every Friday (except not tomorrow!) I guess we haven't been keeping up the thread much- it seems like a lot of people pop in to express interest but never show up, so the core group who always go have taken to just making plans on Facebook. But you and anyone else are always more than welcome. I will try to remember to come and update where we decide to go next week! How old is your ds?

I didn't mean to upset you Christine! Of course you are- I love it when you show up, but nobody comes every single week except Gretchen & Tracy so that is what I meant. It seems like after that giant baby boom last year, everyone went their separate ways. I was posting here, but only ever seeing Gretchen and Tracy on Fridays. I got lax and just started asking them where they wanted to go on FB. But now that the weather is nice, I hope everyone will come again.

Today is going to be too hot and humid for me to go to a park. I don't mind the heat as much as the sweating, ugh. I am kind of wimpy about melting heat! I'm going to go hide inside of the cheapy movies at the Picture Show in Marietta- 12:00, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Gretchen is going to go as well. Anyone is welcome to join us! If you go to the park, have fun- you are a stronger woman than I.

I know, it's been a while since that first meeting! thanks to you, though, I wore Sophie as long as she'd let me. It sounds like you have a new one, little Jack - is he the 3rd? And obviously, I didn't check this thread today so I missed you at the park. We were at the Riverside spraypark, fighting the heat. Hope you guys had fun and maybe we can see you next week. Is koalamommas still around?

yup, jack is #3. I was still pregnant with him the last time I saw you I think - i attended your session at the LLL conf last year

koalamommas is still around, but i'm not leading it anymore. It got to be too much for me with the kids and the ICAN work that I have been involved in the past few years.

Anyone from Marietta/Kennesaw/Woodstock want to get together? Roswell/Alpharetta is too far for me to drive

DS is almost 3 1/2 and is a doll, really sweet and smart and loves to play, esp with older kids. It would be nice for him to have some friends!

I am up for anything but pools which stinks since no one is going to the parks because it is too hot. But we want DS's first experience of pools and beaches to be on our vacation later this year.

Oh and I won't do the Childrens museum anymore. We have been there 6 or 7 times and have both caught colds each time.

Since it's "only" going to be 88 today, K and I are going to head to Roswell Area Park around noon (and hope we don't get rained on!) Anyone want to join us?

I am just finding this thread and would LOVE to join you guys sometime! I'll be looking out on Fridays. It would be great to hang out with some like-minded mamas!

In the meantime, I'm in ITP near Briarcliff/Shallowford. Anyone want to plan a playdate in the area?
