Papaw's Vacation

So a couple of weeks ago, my dad had a week long vacation and we took full advantage of it! We did lots of fun things with papaw and the boys loved every minute of it! We went to see a Rome braves game, went to Stone Mountain, swam in papaw's pool and just hung out! Here are some pics from the braves game. We had a great time despite how HOT it was!!!

The boys were all decked out in their braves gear!! They were so excited to be going to a baseball game with daddy and papaw. They basically said it was alright if I tagged along!! :)

Luke wiggling in my lap...as if it wasn't hot enough before a 35 lb. little boy started laying all over me!!
I know I'm bias, but they are so stinkin' cute! I just love them!!
The boys are just so different and you can especially tell when trying to watch a ball game. Luke was glued in for about 5 minutes and then he just became a wiggle worm. Every now and then he would stop and watch for a few minutes then he would go back to doing something else. I turned around 1 time and found him in his seat like this looking at the ants that were crawling under his seat...I promise it really was an interesting game!! :)
Cade on the other hand, watched just about every play with great focus. He got into the cheering and the dancing in between plays too! Here he is dancing it up!! :)

Cade and his look-a-like being silly!!
So on Thursday of that week, we were going to go to the free movie in Hiram and then just spend the day chilling together....then being the man that my father is......he remembered on our way to the movies that he had gotten tickets for us to go to Stone Mountain that day!! What a fun surprise! I had not been to Stone Mountain in a long time and I don't think the boys had ever been so we were excited to try something new. They have all sorts of fun activities to do at Stone Mountain and we fit in what we could before the boys got to tired!

First up was the train ride! The boys were so excited to be riding on a "real" train.

Papaw and Cade waving in front of the Mountain!
I think the boys ended up being most excited about the big grassy area. All they wanted to do was run up and down the hill....well that is cheap and easy. So we let them just run up and down the hill!!

Then we headed over to the sky buckets to ride up to the top of the mountain. We had to wait in line for a little bit and again it was HOT, so papaw treated us to a yummy icee!!

This was before Cade decided to get scared about the sky buckets! He was fine until the tour guide jokingly said "okay, this is going to feel like a roller coaster so hold on!!" Then I got the terrified, I might die look from him! Thank goodness we made it up all right!
Up on top of the mountain with Papaw...this was the best pic we could get....they are silly!
I had to fight to get them to take this normal pic with me!
We had a big rain the day before and there were big puddles in the craters of the mountain. Papaw and the boys loved running through these puddles! This picture just looks so peaceful to me!

One last time playing on the field before we had to leave.
We so enjoyed our time with papaw and glad he spent some of his vacation with us!
