Last week, we took a mini-vacation to Atlanta. It was not a relaxing trip! But, we did have a good time.
First, we went to Stone Mountain. We had a picnic when we arrived. For our picnic we had sandwiches, grapes, Pringles, and cookies.
I didn't take many pictures on this trip because my camera battery was low. I had no way of charging it.
We went to the top of Stone Mountain. Allyson was excited about riding the Skylift. When we got to the top, she raised her hands and said, "We did it! Yay!" It think we've been watching too much Dora.
Then, she ran all over the top of Stone Mountain and climbed on all the rocks. It was cool and windy, but that did not slow her down one bit.
After that, we went to
The "ducks" are big trucks that go in the water. It's sorta like a bus ride that turns into a boat ride.
Allyson got to drive.
Then, we rode the train around Stone Mountain. After dinner, we had to find a place to set out our blanket to watch the laser show.
I took this picture of the carving while we waited for dark. Did you know that the area cut out for the carving is about 3 acres? It doesn't look that big to me. But, that's what they said while we were on the skylift.
Allyson enjoyed the laser show, but she ended up falling asleep.
We stayed in a hotel overnight and got up the next day to go to
The entire state of Georgia must have had the same idea. It was soooo crowded!

I got a good picture of the baby panda. She's so cute! She was taking her nap.
This white peacock just happened to have her tail open when we were close by. So cool! I've never seen a white peacock.
