Ohmigosh It's HOT
Here in the sunny & humid South, it's just plain ol' HOT. Almost 90 in Stone Mountain Park today, and the a/c is barely able to keep up. At least the pool has been refreshingly cool, and the kids are enjoying the waterpark as an escape from all this dreadful sweat-inducing heat.
I've posted my two favorite snapshots so far from the trip - all of the pictures are up, cellphone photos at the Flickr site, and digital snaps are loaded up at the Fotopages site (a little schizophrenic, don'tcha think?). The kids and I went to the top of the mountain Monday afternoon and went immediately to the fence protecting the don't-go-here-or-you'll-slip-off-and-die zone (Vicki hates going down that low, but the kids loved it - imagine that!).
We also enjoyed the laser show Monday night (Sunday's show was mostly rain and lightning), and today we've made a trip to the Antique Car Museum. I also want to take Trace into the museum building where the sculpture is explained, along with some of the history of Stone Mountain - I think he'll enjoy it.
Packing up and leaving for home tomorrow, so we're trying to squeeze alot into today and tomorrow morning. Just really thankful for in-room a/c right now, but mostly thankful for good well-mannered non-embarrassing children - very important when it's so dang HOT.
