Spring Break in Helen, Georgia, Part One

I am having a lovely vacation with my family in Helen, Georgia! I thought I would go ahead and upload some of my photos. Looking forward to catching up on the blogosphere when we return home.

Sonic on the way...
Sonic has four hot dogs on special right now, and we decided to try a couple. This is the New York dog. It has my favorite hot dog toppings- kraut, onions, and mustard.
This the Chicago style dog, minus the relish. It was also quite tasty.

Hofbrauhaus in Helen...

Hofbrauhaus ended up being our favorite German restaurant in Helen. They serve a fantastic spinach salad with a garlic, dill dressing that is worth every, single calorie. 

Haufbrauhaus also has a spaetzle with cheese sauce that brings spaetzle to a whole new level.

German potato salad- the only potato salad I want on my plate!
Relaxing in the room...

Taking Simon to the City Park...

And at the resort...

 Some sweet treats...

Cookies and cream fudge.
