Rainy Marriott, Retro Goodness, Icy Goodness, And Revolve While You Still Can

We spent part of the weekend in Florence, and stayed at the Marriott Shoals.  I promised the boys we would go swimming, because I remembered that they have a fun/nice pool there, and mentioned that we would try to have supper at the 360 restaurant, because it’s a revolving restaurant and neither of the boys has been to one of those yet.

We had a great view of the Wheeler Dam and the boys thought that was just awesome.

Which is good, because it rained Sunday night and Monday morning, and 360 was closed on Sundays!  But we still had a great time.  The boys played great in the hotel while Daddy was working, and Monday morning, we were treated to biscuits at Trowbridge’s which is so perfectly retro (since 1918):

A week or two ago, Atlanta Fresh had a sample tasting at Whole Foods and while I almost always pass grocery store tastings up, the boys got to it before I did, and turns out that was totally okay because the flavors were delicious (Tropical Sweet Heat!) and we brought home a small container of vanilla.  It’s frozen Greek yogurt, made small-batch with Atlanta-local milk that’s scary-stuff free.  So yummy.

And looking at the listing of revolving restaurants in the US, so many of them are closed now!  Wow.
