We don’t take it for granite.

Ba dum bump… ching!

(stole Lew’s joke there… that’s what I did)

We visited Stone Mountain yesterday with Marti & her crew. Did you know that Stone Mountain is the most visited attraction in the state of Georgia? Yessiree. Why? Because it’s GEORGIA.


We had a fun hanging out at The Great Barn. We threw fruit at each other and took goofy pictures. Marti and I figured out how to look super-skinny:

Don’t we look awesome? (the secret: lipstick)

After the barn we rode the tram (not to be confused with the box of death) to the top of the mountain.

Don’t our legs and feet look awesome? (again, lipstick) And yes, I am that pasty white in real life.

We enjoyed the views including: making sure the kids don’t fall off the side, trick-photography, and making fun of people watching.

Our girls? This is how they are the entire time they’re together.

Attached at the hip. Which means that Marti and I pretty much spend the day saying things like, “Ohmigosh they are so cute!” or “Look how cute they are!” and “How cute are they?”

We also tortured the kids with plenty of group pictures. Because if you can’t torture your kids then what’s the point of having them?

This is one of the 137 shots of them standing in that exact spot. Ahhh… parenting.

We got back down the mountain crammed into another tram. Thank goodness none of us are claustrophobic.

Um, nevermind.

We were planning on having a picnic on the lawn, but the rain changed our plans. Instead we had a mini-tailgate party and tried to see how much food we could stuff in our faces before the rain started.

The answer: A lot.

    “Because it’s Georgia.”

    My favorite parenting ploy when picture-taking… “The longer it takes you to smile and gimme the picture I need, the longer you’ll be up there!” MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!!

    I don’t know, but since I’ve trying to take artsier pictures, my kids’ looks of disgust come across as contemplation, so we all win!!

    I think Blue Cross covers psychological therapy, so we’re good.

    You guys are so funny :o) Has Marti recovered from her trip in the “box of death” to the top of the “mountain of death”?

  6. Marti says:

    Mwa ha ha – yes, I recovered. I just keep going back to that one picture, Jen. We look SO SKINNY! And you know, I don’t think it is just the lipstick…
