We had my parents in town for a long weekend to celebrate Father’s Day as well as something else big — their closing on a home in Marietta! The guys started renovations this morning, so they will be moving up to GA later this summer and will be living just about 20 minutes from us — just in time for baby H’s arrival!

We spent the weekend eating around Atlanta (as usual when they’re in town) and had the most delicious dinner at Ocean Prime in Buckhead. I’ve never noticed it when driving down Piedmont, and now I’m sad we’ve been missing out all these years. Everything we had, from the hot bread and appetizers, to entrees and desserts, was fantastic. The service was excellent, too. My mom said her Teriyaki Salmon dish was the best salmon she’d ever had, and we couldn’t get over the desserts — especially the Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake, which was a surprise favorite.

Mom and I made some headway on the nursery gallery wall, and I can’t wait for the adorable cross-stitch she made for the nursery to come back from being matted and framed. We capped off Father’s Day with an incredible dinner cooked by my brother, which included steaks, loaded baked potatoes, creamed corn, sauteed spinach, garlic bread, salad, homemade ice cream, AND a skillet cookie baked on the grill! If only we could have him cook for us every night. It was the perfect ending to a fun weekend with family.
