I dont know that we can make it. I am likely going to be spending money for an indoor place while meeting a friend tomorrow and with parking, Imagine It is still pretty spendy. Plus, I need to bring a bunch of stuff by Bens school on Fri for the spring carnival, so I was hoping to have an alpharetta/roswell activity to take advantage of the drive. we may head to the mall if everyone is going downtown.

It doesn't have to be this Friday. The dragon thing is on through the end of May, and I don't see this dragon fascination ending anytime soon. Tracy is going to be out of town for a long time starting next week, so we can postpone it for a month. And then maybe Angela will feel up to joining us too.

Which brings us back to: what will we do this week?

Hmm...well, there's always the old stand-by of Chick-fil-A. Or Monkey Joe's. Beyond that...I dunno.

Either of those is fine with me. Marcos also suggested Monkey Joe's. Or we can have it at my house. I did more cleaning up today than I have all month, since I got the bird flu.

Maybe we should do Monkey Joe's, then, so as to burn off the maximum amount of energy possible. I am very tired of the rain already. I would rather not inflict my pack of boys on anyone's clean house at the moment. At Monkey Joe's, at least I won't be able to tell how noisy they are.

Link to the Monkey Joes you speak of?

We went to Southern Prep today and Elly had a blast running around nonstop for over an hour. Not sure if I am up for a 2nd loud place in as many days, but we'll see.

11ish?

We may be there, actually you can count us in if someone is calling ahead. I'm trying to talk Lance into coming so I dont have to chase anyone around... I dont know if hes going for it though.

The kids need to get out, and I suppose I do too!

I can call ahead. So I guess they'll have my name (Gretchen), and just mention you're with my playgroup? We'll plan for 11...see everyone there!

I am moving slow today, along with a sick baby and a dog with digestive issues. Just got back from the store and Bens school and I am done. Put a fork in me. Hope y'all had fun.

Hey--tomorrow's Friday again already--how did that happen?! And it's wet and nasty again. Anyone want to just meet up at Chick-fil-A for lunch?

Hi all, we'll be spending the summer (and possibly longer) in Atlanta. Is this something that meets up every week? Can anyone join?

We're up for Chick-fil-A. Do you want to meet around 11, then?

Becky, yes we do meet every Friday, and you're more than welcome. What part of Atlanta will you be staying in? (it's a huge metro area! You could be close by, or it could take an hour to drive over this way, depending on where you are staying.)

OK, see you all then.

NP, my ex-husband went to Milton in the late 80s. It seems like everyone I meet is younger than me, though, so you probably didn't know each other.

We'll be living near Emory. My father's side of the family is almost all in the Atlanta metro area, so I'm pretty familiar with it.

Becky, that will probably take you close to 40 minutes. Let us know when you're in town.

I was wondering if anyone might want to hit Sweet Apple on Wednesday? We're going to go out of town for the weekend on Friday, so we're hoping to bump playgroup up! I checked the weather and it said 60 and mostly sunny on Wed (let's not even talk about what it says for tomorrow and Tuesday! Yikes!)

eta: Renee, how'd it go? Who are you seeing? (PM if you want).
