Let's go to the suburbs!

I lugged my cam along on a trip to visit my parents' house. I took them to a Trader Joe's and introduced them to the phenomenon that it is. They took me to the Cheesecake Factory at the mall! Tres chic!

The I-75/I-85 "Connector," all 15 lanes of it. All the traffic on the left was going to the NHL All-Star game. Glad we weren't stuck in that ish.

M-M-M-M-Mega Church for those with MegaBucks. Humble, much?

We've got lots of these five lane 45mph roads to get you from Home Depot to Wal-Mart.

Here's some nice mixed-use stuff that's been going up all around town. I approve! :)

Little houses on the hillside, little houses made of ticky-tacky, little houses on the hillside, little houses all the same...

If my folks weren't flying the Stars and Stripes, I wouldn't know which house to pull into, lol.

I rescued this Japanese Maple from certain death when I was a landscaper back in the day in Athens. It was only a foot tall at the time, look at it now!

Suburban McMansion jokes aside, they have a killer backyard with lots of songbirds, squirrels, bunnies, feral cats, and the occasional coyote.

Surprise! Mom returns from shopping.

The little houses are apartments.
