I enjoy going to the city once in a while, but we would all much rather be able to get outside and play! Stone Mountain is in Atlanta but when you get into the park you feel like you are out. There are walking trails everywhere and it is so beautiful!
The day we got there Marc headed to his meetings and I hiked the mountain with the kids. This trip we took Mariah, Malachi and Myles with us. One of the girls has to be home to milk the goats. Madeline stayed home with Macheus (and of course, Matthew didn't get to go on either one of the trips because of school and work. Growing up is the pits! :o)
Apparently, it had rained the night before! The kids had so much fun playing on top of the mountain!
The boys were playing "restaurant".
After the hike back down we headed to the grist mill for a picnic.
They played in the water and both boys ended up falling in. Unlike girls, they just kept right on playing!
We headed over to the lawn to get a close-up look at the carving. I never grow tired of seeing it!
Sadly, the train was not operating while we were there. Myles adores trains and we had hoped to ride.
The resort at Stone Mountain is so much fun to stay at. The pool is great and the weather warmed up each day for them to swim.
He learned to swim last year and really gained a lot of confidence this year.
I got the kids started on their school work in the mornings and headed off for my runs. The weather was glorious and the scenery was gorgeous!
(Yes, I was a dork and took a "running selfie". :o) I texted it to Marc and told him the morning was glorious and I was sorry he was stuck in meetings. :o)
Why would anyone question whether there was a creator when they see the majesty of creation?
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork." Psalm 19:1
These two are such good buddies. They liked hanging out on our balcony.
This was the view from our room. The lake was beautiful!
Thankful for the time away to spend with my children. It is always refreshing to get a break from the routine and rejuvenates me when I go back home. Thankful that my sweet husband enjoys taking us on his travels! It is always so much fun!
