Family Fun Weekend

Last weekend we took a little mini-vacation. We had planned to get away for a few days, but Josiah is having surgery tomorrow to get ear tubes and to have a cyst removed from his mouth. And of course his pre-op appointment was scheduled for last Friday. So, since we couldn't go away, we decided to take day trips here in Atlanta. We went to Stone Mountain, the zoo and a state park.

We loved Stone Mountain! The boys had a great time- we rode the train, rode the tram up to the top of the mountain where they ran all around, we rode the "Ducks" and the driver let Caleb drive- Noah fell asleep so he didn't get to drive!- we saw a family band called Laughing Pizza that has videos on PBS, the boys played in this indoor barn obstacle course and there was a ropes course that Caleb LOVED- seriously, he loved it. It's on the video- watch him as he wait to go on the zip line at the end of the course- he can't stand still he is so excited! We had a super fun day- I am sure we'll go back again (I am still kicking myself for not upgrading to a year long membership!).

Then on Friday after Josiah's doctor's appointment we went to the zoo. We had a great time, although the zoo was packed out for spring break. I think the best part was feeding the parakeets. The boys really liked it.

And Saturday we went to Sweetwater State Park. We had a picnic and went fishing. Caleb caught his first fish! It was very exciting. We caught two fish total, not bad with a 4 year old, 2 year old and 7 month old in tow! We had a wonderful weekend together as a family. I'll post some still shots in the next post, but for now, enjoy this video from our weekend. Thanks to my amazing husband for making it!
