Since making the transition to one family car at the first of this year, we have to be more intentional in the places we go and the things we do. We live on a pretty strict budget, so I think this “project” will be a great way to keep things interesting and fun, for free or at least inexpensively. Then, from time to time, we can also include new/cool shops or restaurants we visit, too!
After a very lazy Saturday, we decided that Sunday would be a day for exploring. We’ve both been dying to see the Boulevard Tunnel since the recent Living Walls ATL installation was painted this past April by artist, MOMO. In case you’re not familiar, Living Walls “is a nonprofit organization
that brings together street artists, academics and the public at large
to activate and engage communities.” [Facebook] Here is an awesome video by the artist about the Boulevard Tunnel Initiative.

I’ve always been a fan of anything with shamrocks on it, being that my birthday is St. Patrick’s Day. We took this opportunity for a little photo fun. I was getting a smile outta my kid one way or the other. *wink*
climate-controlled gondolas providing guest with breathtaking panoramic
views of downtown Atlanta and the surrounding metropolitan area.” You couldn’t pay me to go on this thing. I’m afraid of heights and have always been terrified on Ferris wheels. No thanks. I’m sure I’ll be holding my breath as the boys ride this thing together one day way to soon.
