Stone Mountain!!!

The rest of our day at Stone Mountain was a blast! Since we had to be up early again the next morning to drive to Augusta we couldn't stay for the laser show that night and we got everything done before it started to get very crowded. I think people tend to come later because they plan to stay until the laser show, which worked out perfectly for us! We all did the ropes course and there were 3 levels. We started out on level 2 and I must admit that even I was a little nervous when we started out. I was SO proud of the kids who rocked it, especially Ella who is terrified typically of certain heights experiences. She made it all the way around and Preston did as well. Addie is our completely fearless one and she was flying through every obstacle. We all did level 1 and then all of us but Ella went up to the highest level. It was so fun and we totally beat the crowds which was a bonus :-). I wish I had some good pictures of us up there, but you aren't allowed to bring anything including phones.
The kids also played at a big playground and did a rock wall and we all went to a 4D movie (not great but worth it for the awesome picture we got in front of the green screen haha), rode the train around the park and then took the Skyride up to the top of the mountain and then back down again.
I would love to come back here again if we have more time in Atlanta again and hike up the mountain and take the Skyride down...and check out the laser show...and I still want to go to the Coca Cola Museum. Atlanta is a fun town!
We met up with Mike's family for dinner at a BBQ place we tried last year. The food is decent but we had fond memories of the strawberry cake. Our two tables got the last two slices, phew! We also tried the Vanilla Raspberry and I think I liked that one even better!
Then it was off to the hotel to try and get some sleep for another big day on Monday!

We bought a print of this one and I totally left it in our rental car. I am sad not only because I don't have this gem, but also because I didn't get to see the reaction of the person who found it haha!!!
