Snow Mountain | Mommy and Me Monday | 199th ed

December 8, 2013 in mommy and me

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

The weather in Atlanta has been nothing short of nasty this last week. I think it’s rained pretty much every single day this week…making things depressing to say the least. And it’s been hot, too. Friday, I almost turned the AC back on. We had plans to go to Stone Mountain’s Snow Mountain Saturday with my cousin in town, but the weather was so wishy-washy, so we waited until the last minute.

We decided to make a go of it. And, it was perfect. The threat of rain seemed to really scare people off and there were little to no lines. The only bad thing? I failed to bring a jacket and gloves for myself. I think that’s better than forgetting the kids stuff!

{Just like last year, the obligatory top of Stone Mountain picture. Yes, it was COLD up there.}

E is still a little too short (surprisingly only 2 inches) to ride on Avalanche Alley (the large tubes), so Mr. Serious and my cousin took the big girls up. They were able to ride like 5 times each. The lines were so short and moving very quickly which made for some very happy girls.

{Who told these two they could grow up so much? Emotional mommy much!}

Apparently, N thought it was funny to call my cousin “Aunt Emily” or “you”. Of course, neither one is her name. But, she was a good sport about it.

While they were tubing, E and I hung out in the Snow Fort area. She was able to ride on a little tube that was moved around. Pretty sure she didn’t really know what to think about it.

She was much happier just sitting in the snow and putting it in the bucket, one handful at a time. (And, me being 37 weeks pregnant, I was pretty happy with her just sitting there and playing in the snow.)

The oldest was done with the big tubes and decided to bring daddy over to the little kids area. They thought it would be fun for her. Again, she wasn’t really impressed (and honestly, seemed a little disturbed that daddy and her big sister just pushed her down a hill!)

After playing in the Snow Mountain area, we went and changed into warm and dry clothes that we had packed and grabbed lunch. I noticed many people had vouchers for their meals and drinks and found if you buy your tickets online in advance, you can include a meal plan with it. Great idea and way to save money….you know I’m all about a deal.

Snow Mountain is such a fun place for a family to go…even with kids of all ages and sizes. There is definitely a place for everybody to enjoy it.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

Stone Mountain provided us with tickets to Snow Mountain. All thoughts are my own.

I’ve heard of that place but I didn’t know what all it had there so I’m glad you showed it. That actually looks totally fun! On a weather note, you are NOT kidding about depressing weather lately!

We love Snow Mountain! We went last year and had such a great time! It’s so nice to have this as an option here in Atlanta where it rarely snows. Now we get to partake in the snow just like the North!

Man, the weather really has been nasty in Atlanta lately. I have never taken my kids to Snow Mountain, but have been trying to work out a time with friends to finally take my kiddos.

That looks like so much fun! I love Stone Mountain, but my family has never been in Atlanta during the winter months to experience it. We have visited several times to enjoy the laser show during the summer though. Your little one looks so cute sitting in the tube. And kudos to you for getting out and enjoying the day. When I was that far along, it was painful to go to the grocery store. I can’t imagine a day in the snow. :)
