It was a beautiful weekend in Atlanta. It screamed fall, and even though we got a little sunburned, it was amazing!
The girls had recently heard a commercial on the radio for Stone Mountain’s Pumpkin festival and asked if they could go for their birthdays (maybe those 8 and 6 posts will come soon). We booked it on the calendar after Stone Mountain agreed to host us and made our trek over there Saturday morning.
We took advantage of the pumpkins hanging around in various displays to get some fun photos. The only thing missing was the yellow brink road. Please also note that my 8 year old will be taller than me in about 0.2 seconds!
I found some pretty funny pumpkins in the pumpkin patch, too!
There was also coloring crafting, pie eating, and treat finding. We didn’t get a chance to do it all. There were two little girls begging to go on Sky Hike (the ropes challenge course).
Before that could happen, we had to check out Ride the Ducks. It was actually our first time on the amphibious car ride. We were all pretty thrilled to check it out. A certain little girl likes to see herself on the camera now and wave “hi” while also saying “hi” in the sweetest voice ever!
I even caught a rare glimpse of all my ducklings with me. Quack!
All of the kiddos even had a chance to drive the boat. Which, of course, was amazing!
Of course, no mommy in this picture, but it’s my new favorite. So I have to share!
I know we’ve been to the Pumpkin Festival before, but alas, the last pictures I’m finding are from 2010! Half of my oldest’s lifetimes ago! Look at my baby!
Have you been to Stone Mountain before? Or a Ride the Duck Ride (check out our splash entry into the lake on Facebook!)
*Thank you to Stone Mountain providing the tickets to the park and the Ride the Duck ride. All thoughts are my own!
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.
**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.*
