Independence Day Weekend

Wow! What a weekend! Mike and I had his nephey, Payton, this weekend from Thursday night thru Saturday night. We woke up early on Friday morning to take Payton & Joey to Stone Mountain where Mike & Joe waited for 90 minutes to do the SkyHike where it was supposed to take another 2 hours to complete. In the meantime, Payton & I went to climb logs & play in the small creek after we watched the Journey to the Center of the Earth in 4D (Which he LOVED). Afterwards, we decided to take the Scenic Railroad (Thomas the Train's Friend ;) ) while Payton napped. We spent the rest of the day on the lawn waiting on the laser show to begin with fireworks following.

Saturday was just as busy (if not busier) with a Marta ride to the zoo and back to Centennial Olympic park to watch the fireworks there. We took Payton down to the ring of fountains to play and it was PACKED OUT! We were a little nervous since we didn't want to get wet & we were having to watch Payton with 100s of other children without doing so. :) The fireworks were a little bit of a letdown from Stone Mountain's firework show, but it was fun nonetheless. After the show ended, a drunk & stoned-out-of-her-mind woman came up to use our cell phone because she had lost her husband. We had to wait with this 40-something year old woman while she found him. Needless to say, we didn't get out of the park until just about everyone else had left...bummer! We dropped Payton off with his parents & went home to sleep until noon.

Sunday was a day of relaxation! We did some laundry, watched 2 movies & I never even came out of my pajamas. MUCH NEEDED!
