High Museum & a special day for little bit

 i'm betting this post will result in blogger probation for me
because i've included 2,358 images.
& i even used some restraint.
it was just such a great day. a beautiful day.
at a museum. at a museum that allowed photographs.
so that's my defense.

little bit turned 11 last month & asked to go to The High Museum of Art.
since we completely flew through the younger years with not one single chuckie cheese request
a day trip to the museum was a definite resounding amen!
my sweet friend danielle put 4 tickets in the mail
(thank you precious friend)
so we snatched up her bestie & had a wonderful day.
 savannah was in class & emi was at the beach,
so dan & i and madison enjoyed the day with them.
lucky us!

we started out with lunch on the patio at Fellini's in Buckhead,
one of our family favorites.
next door was Cacao
a must stop destination for chocolate lovers.
i've never been to France but in my minds eye,
this is what a little chocolate bar in France would look like.

i bet you're already forgiving me for so many images. right?

next stop, High Museum
who's currently featuring the exhibit Picasso to Warhol

i kinda have a fear of heights.
walking up the plethora of floors via the open walkway
had me breaking out in a sweat. no lie.
madison found my fear quite humorous as she hung from the banister.
har har
i even asked a lady to walk on the outer side near the railing so i could be closer to the wall.
another true story.

we used our inside voices
& acted very mature

 see dan peeking through us?

 surely that was an acceptable selfie shot. am i correct?

let's hear it for museums that allow photographs.

then on to our favorite book store in decatur,
The Little Shop of Stories.
had to snatch up this super cute copy of pippi.

ended the day with some frozen yogurt
& called it a perfect day!

the end.

madison's necklace is from our new spring line & 
can be found here
We are excited to partner with African New Life in Rwanda 
and their tailoring program of women who proudly crafted these fun necklaces
(necklace is sold individually)

Love Love Love so many things about this post! Little Bit is THE MOST mature 11 year old I know. I guess it's the big sisters. I love the art and I love the fact that you do too. BUT, I HAVE to ask that REALLY all you put on your yogurt?????????????????

Unknown said...

Oh WOW, I am putting this right up there with my top five favourite posts of your Paige, this was a great read!!!

You made me laugh out loud with your poses in the museum - what a cool place to visit, wow!!

LOVE love love the chocolate shop...WOW and YUM!!!!

You girls look GORGEOUS as always....where are Madison's sunglasses from? Please can you ask her?!

If I win the lottery, I am coming to stay with you and you are going to take me out to all these places and then photograph me and make me look real pretty. Seriously ;) XX

You have an eleven year old who WANTS to go to the art museum for her birthday? She must be the perfect child.:-)

Great photos, never too many.


Kim said...

I love days when the whole family is together, but don't you just love an indulging day with one or two? So. much, fun!!! Looks like it was a great time for everyone!

Tiffany said...

Hi Paige!!

Looks like a VERY fun day indeed! I think those kinds of birthday celebrations are the most memorable :) Caroline is just adorable! Does she give you any grief at all when you want to take photos? My daughter sighs and rolls her eyes - i tell her SOME day you will thank me for recording these events and moments; cue another eye roll! I know I am right though!

ok 2 things to note:

1. Madison could be a model so very pretty! Is is strange for me to think I would really like her?

2. You my dear are a beautiful women; inside and out! I have told you before and I will write it again - i really appreciate and admire how you share your heart and your family!

Have a wonderful day!!

Shannon said...

Thank you for taking a ton of pictures!! It looks like the perfect way to spend a birthday. Makes me want to fly there to do it all exactly the same way. Now I know you have more pics on Facebook so I'm off to check those out ;)

Tammie said...

I have to say Thank you for all those images but in opinion it is never enough.. I love iamges when taken as well as yours and to have Beautiful models(your daughters) to shoot, what more can you ask for ? Right? Thanks again and Happy 11th Birthday Little Bit. (I think you may have to start calling her Getting Bigger Bit) Ha, J/K She is so cute and mature.

Could you say a special prayer for a group of sorority sisters who are burying one of their own tomorrow? She died Easter Sunday of injuries from a wreck. Her name is Kaytryn Parrish and she was a freshman at Murray State University in Kentucky. She was an Alpha Gamma Delta and was my daughters little sis in the sorority.

What a fabulous day and a great museum. I am actually thinking a trip to Atlanta would be fun!!! Keep boring me with those photo's Paige!!!!!!!

Just a thought, your blog is beautiful and so is your family and so are all of your friends, but I wonder, why is everything so "white"? Photo shoots of colored families or your daughters' colored friends? I'm not trying to be critical, I'm just interested.

Joanne said...

What a fun day! I am looking forward to going art shows and many museums when I leave Africa. Thanks Paige for your note I am so excited to receive everythingI

Chinese cabbage salad is a favorite for me...I eat it weekly in summer. What an amazing museum. I would be afraid to walk up those banisters too. Your daughter looks just like you in these photos. Love her bright pink ballet flats and how they pop in all the photos.

Lindsey said...

I love that Caroline wanted to go to the High Museum. In other news...these may be some of my favorite pictures. Love the colors...and the expressions!
