Summer Weekending: Six Flags White Water and Father’s Day

Summer weekending week 2 was white water and father's day

Summer weekend fun doesn’t always have to be out-of-town. I am determined, this summer, to explore all of the things that there are to do here in Atlanta. There is so much to do here and I figure, we might as well take advantage.

This past weekend, we headed on over to Six Flags White Water for some water fun in the sun( or clouds) and water.

The new Wahoo Racer Ride was opening and Pookah had a great time checking it out before the ride officially opened.

Sunday of course, was Father’s Day.

I admit, I was feeling some kind of way about my first Father’s Day without my Daddy. It was….hard in it’s own way. But of course, the day wasn’t about me so I put it aside to examine later.

Father’s are always talking about how they get nothing but socks and ties. I has big plans for him, but CDub took it upon himself to schedule himself a round of golf with some of his fellow golf fathers. Which made me think: why don’t I just start doing that for Mother’s Day? Not schedule a golf date, but schedule what I want to do for Mother’s Day? Like a spa day? An overnight stay in a hotel? That way, I don’t feel disappointed and I ENJOY my day.

But of course, I really kind of love waking up to breakfast in bed from Pookah bear…..


Pookah and I filled the time with a little grocery shopping and a trip to Target….

We enjoyed a little time at Target

But after he made it home around noon, we headed out for brunch at the Thumbs Up Diner in Edgewood.

The wait was long( it was Father’s Day after all) but the food was awesome.

He enjoyed himself..and that’s all that mattered.

Afterwards, I we headed to Golfsmith for a Father’s Day gift and called it a day.

It was a great weekend, that of course went too fast.

I can’t wait to see what we get into next weekend.

How was your summer weekend?
