This past weekend we took our first visit of the season to Stone Mountain. Wow, have things changed from when I was a child! All I remember was a big mountain with a skylift, a historical museum, a nightly laser show, and a campground. Now, it's almost like a miniature theme park. We ended up getting a year long pass since there is so much to do. We started off with a trip to the indoor playground but it was a little too loud for Ethan so we didn't spend too much time in there. We walked past the water geysers(...thankfully, since we did not bring swimsuits) and the skyhike and headed for the train ride. It was a 5 mile ride around the base of the mountain and we knew Ethan would have a blast.

After the train ride, we walked past the miniature golf course, strolled through the museum, stopped for a snack, then strolled across the lawn on our way to the skylift to ride the gondola to the top of the mountain. Ben and I have walked to the top before and when the boys get older, I would love to do that again as a family.

What a day! And there is still more to do that we did not even attempt this time. Can't wait!
