The FOUR – Restaurants, parks, events, and attractions to visit this month in Atlanta: 

  1. Pastries A Go-Go in Decatur offers scrumptious breakfast goodies and friendly servers.
  2. Olivia’s Dollhouse Tea Room in Johns Creek is the perfect spot for a princess birthday party. (Birthday parties are on my mind because my little princess will turn FIVE in February! *gulp*)
  3. CNN Center Atlanta is a great field trip destination because children (and adults!) can go behind the scenes to see how the news gets made.
  4. Antico Pizza is the best pizza I’ve ever put into my food hole. So yum.

Where do you plan to take your child this month? (Assuming it’s not going to stay freeeeezing outside!)
