FC: 2011 Stone Mountain
1: Trudy and her family have gone to Stone Mountain camping before. The kids always talk about all the fun, climbing on the Sky Hike and riding their bikes around the campgrounds. This year Trudy and Allen convinced us to go, then she talked Mama and Daddy into joining us. We all departed on July 16, 2011. After a little trouble with the RV, we made it the next day. Thank goodness Daddy was with us (always smart to have a good mechanic around). Once ariving, we quickly set up the RV and Camper, checked Mama and Daddy into their hotel room, then hurried to make it to an Atlanta Braves' game at Turner Field. During the following week, we enjoyed all Stone Mountain has to offer....The kids climbed on the Sky Hike REPEATEDLY, we enjoyed the Yogi Bear 4D adventure a couple of times (no one could ever forget Mama's screams EVERY time the water squirted her), Daddy and Heath enjoyed watching the men blow glass, rode the train around the base of the mountain, was educated on how the mountain was formed, and the history of Georgia. We attemded the Laser Light Show several nights. As a group, we rode the Ducks, a few of us took a turn at driving. At first we rode the Summit Ride to the top of the mountain, later that week Daddy wanted to hike to the top. So we all set off to hike it to the top. Everyone made it except ME... We toured the Coca-Cola Company in downtown Atlanta, spent several afternoons enjoying the beautiful enviornment while the kids rode their bikes, and enjoyed the pool at the hotel (boy, the water sure was cold, yet refreshing). Saturday, July 23 we packed up and returned home, thankfully the ride home was uneventful. I think we can all say it was a GREAT week. I am so very thankful that we were able to all be together and enjoy each other's company. I hope we are able to have many repeat vacations together.
