Stone Mountain 101
So after the Country Living "Fair", we felt it was only "fair" (hee hee get it?) to take the girls to see Stone Mountain. It has been a very long time since we had been to Stone Mountain - they have a lot of stuff for kids that completely slipped my mind.
And of course, where there is a rock - the girls must jump off of it. Thankfully into a parent's arms.
Did you know who is carved into Stone Mountain? ...Hold please while I look it up on Wikipedia (oh come on, you didn't think I retained that information did ya?) Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson (and their favorites horses).
And did you know there is a train that goes all the way around Stone Mountain? Yeah, me neither. It was a very pleasant little loop we took on the train.
After the train ride we started to get settled for the laser light show. What? You didn't know there was a laser light show? Well, I did! (but I totally forgot until Anna's Mom mentioned it. snarf.)
Once we got the girls into their pajamas there was much tomfoolery and hijinks until the show started.
Hannah took this picture of us. Didn't she do a good job? Look our heads are not even cut off!
This is the best picture of the laser light show we could get. Besides all of the Confederate propaganda it was a very nice show. Free bird!
