Harrison OaksRather than dwelling on that lost hour of sleep, focus on the additional daylight that allows us to spend more time outside enjoying the gorgeous Georgia weather.

Spring is upon us and as we move forward into those longer days, there are more than enough outdoor activities to keep you and your family busy around Metro Atlanta, many of which are pet-friendly and free to enjoy!

Atlanta is surrounded by ample views of its natural beauty and plenty of popular hiking trails. One standout place to visit is Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, near Traton’s Olde Anderson Estates and Harrison Oaks communities. Just north of Atlanta, Kennesaw Mountain offers trails that range in difficulty from the two-mile Kennesaw Mountain Trail to its 16-mile trek from the park’s Visitor Center south to Cheatham Hill and Kolb Farm. In addition, a paved roadway leads visitors straight to the top so everyone can enjoy  the breathtaking views.  Kennesaw Mountain is a pet-friendly, day use only park, open from dawn to dusk.   Read More→

Cobb County home at Harrison Oaks The back to school madness has begun! From new wardrobes to school supply shopping, we understand that starting the school year can be a bit hectic. To make it a little easier, Traton Homes has found some tasty food ideas that will make filling those lunchboxes more exciting.

PB&J Apple Roll-Ups

These roll-ups give a traditional PB&J a little kick by adding an apple into the mix. All you need is two flour tortillas, two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, four teaspoons of jam, one apple cut into wedges, one teaspoon of melted butter, two teaspoons of sugar and one-eighth teaspoon of ground cinnamon. You’ll want to make some for yourself, we promise. To make this tasty treat, microwave the tortillas for 10 seconds to soften. Spread each with a tablespoon of peanut butter and two teaspoons of jam. Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place two to three apple wedges down the center of each tortilla, and roll up. Move the rolls onto a baking sheet, and brush with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small cup, and then sprinkle half of the mixture on top of each roll. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and you are all set! Read More→
