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.

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.
