Just turning on the gravel road that leads to this paradise relaxes me. It is remote and what is considered primitive camping (that means no toilets or showers) and I love it.....not the no toilet or showers silly, the remoteness.
I am very lucky that I found a sweetie who loves this kind of camping as well. He was as enchanted as I by Jones Creek and we have been taking our family there since I took him for his first visit. This time we had our grand babies (well, two of them) join us for a few days. I can't explain to you how surreal it was to have my grands in the woods that I grew up in...happy, happy, joy, joy!
Sorry for the brief post but it has been hectic since we got back and...I am off to Alabama for a few days. I need to dust and sweep!
Jones Creek Part 2 Always an adventure! when I get back.
p.s. I still peel my potatos "the navy way"!

We got up Saturday and headed to Cleveland, Georgia. Home of Babyland General.
First was Happy Birthday to Poppa!
And since they got married on his birthday, Happy Anniversary to Nanna & Poppa.
And...since his Birthday is July 3rd.....Happy Fourth of July......work with me.
Poppa got lots of Birthday love.
Nanna got Anniversary hugs.
We had an even dozen for the cook out celebration. It was another HOT but beautiful summer day in Georgia.
The kids had a go at the sprinkler while they waited for lunch.
Kodi climbed a tree.
Brodie climbed a Kris!
And boys will be boys no matter what their age.......note the horns.
It was a really nice day and the perfect opportunity to snap a four generation picture.
Like I said, Happy, Happy, Happy!

I will not start any more projects until all UFOs are gone!
I will not start anymore projects until all UFOs are gone!
I will try not to start any more projects until all UFOs are gone!
I will not create any more UFOs!
Hey, wait, maybe a UFO abducted "it"!
Yeah...that's it! Cause I DON'T lose things. Really! I don't.
It was a long, HOT day at the mountain, but boy was it fun! This is the lawn, at the foot of the mountain, where we set up our blankets. We weren't there long before we were all glad for the coloring fans. The kids never stopped long enough to color them but the adults sure did use them.
The laser & firework show was a perfect finale to a great day!
And a good time was had by all!
...............Or so they told me.......Thanks Kids!
Can't wait for next year.

Okay, that wasn't so bad. Lets just pick up starting with today and if we don't already know each other we soon will, I hope.
This week I have been trying to get ready for a family outing to Stone Mountain Park. It is something we did almost every year with all the kids (seven, for those not in the know) as they were growing up. We always had such fun! The train ride around the mountain, our picnic dinner, and the laser show were always my favorites. Several of the kids are really looking forward to some of their new attractions. One called the sky hike has a few interested, while others think the new 4-D movie will be great fun. There is really something for every one to do no matter your age or interests. This will be our first trip with the grand babies (four, as you can see in my profile pic). I am so excited. It is an ordeal trying to get all of us together at one time these days. There are 18 of us now and that takes some serious scheduling. I am so glad it has worked out. (THANKS KIDDOS!) The best part is the kids all seem as excited as I am
.....well ...okay, most of them are almost as excited as I am and that's good enough for me.
I have a few simple projects I am working on to take with us, will try to share those later this week. Also, look for pictures from our family day at the mountain sometime next week.Jody
