This summer is going fast - two weeks until the daughter goes back and three for the grandson.
Our next stay-cation was to Lego Land Atlanta Style. And of course we started by eating at the Landmark Diner - near Buckhead. Now daughter had a Groupon - we love those things so it was pretty cheap yet good! The waitress told us that it had been there for 25 years and was the first diner here in the area.
I loved those chairs.

Grandson and Queen Chatty.
As we drove towards Phipps Plaza we saw this building that said Piece Of Cake.
This is daughter and grandson in front of the store - of course we had to stop - dah! We did not buy cake though.
Not sure what all these statues are about - but there were a few on the streets of Atlanta - anyone know?
At Fernbank Museum they must be studying poop - yes poop for real. lol
