On April 20th and 21st we joined our sister facilities on an overnight adventure to Pine Mountain, Ga. We started our day with a scenic drive around the mountain. We stopped at the overlook for some pictures and shopping. Next we headed to the Wild Animal Safari. The animals came right up to us and some even ate right out of our hands. We ended our first day with a cookout at the cabins!
Day two started with breakfast at the Piedmont. After breakfast, we headed to Callaway Gardens. The butterfly House was definitely a hit! After lunch, it was time to head home.
Elders from Healing Hands Lane. hosted a book exchange recently. Everyone who attended brought books they had already read and exchanged them with their neighbors. Everyone who attended said they enjoyed getting to discuss the books and picking out new books to take back home and enjoy. Thank you Healing Hands Lane for hosting this event.
SHC at The Courtyard celebrated Spring Break Day today with a Hawaiian Luau! Elders, visitors, and stakeholders enjoyed a picnic on the front lawn. The menu included Bar-B-Q sandwiches, coleslaw, baked beans, and pineapple upside down cake. Elders had the opportunity to visit the Lei Stand and Sunglass Hut to stock up on some new accessories. After lunch, elders participated in Luau games including ring the Flamingo and coconut Bowling.
Last week the Easter Bunny stopped by our cookout to visit with the Elders and find out what they wanted in their Easter Baskets. There were lots of smiles and giggles as the Easter Bunny made his rounds.
Today we celebrated spring with a picnic. This morning, elders gathered in the Quality of Life Room with their favorite picnic recipes. Pasta salad, finger sandwiches, deviled eggs, and cheesecake were the most popular selections. Next we loaded up and headed to the store. Once we had all the items on our list, and a few extra, we headed back to start cooking. Finally, everything was prepared. We invited some of our neighbors out onto the courtyard for a good spring picnic. Everyone agreed the cheesecake was their favorite thing we made. It was a lot of fun. It reminded me of the picnics we use to do after church in the spring and summer.
