Family Fun at Rock Ranch

This past weekend we headed to the Rock Ranch in The Rock, GA.
I had read that they would be having a hot air balloon festival, and I thought that sounded fantastic.
The weather was beautiful that day, and the kids had such a fantastic time!
Our chariot trailer to the fun!

Zip lines over the lake.

Paddle boats.

Train that goes around the grounds.

The carousel.

The face of enjoyment!

Cow Train!

Family Dodge Ball!

Underground slides!

Tiny Town.

Uh oh!

School House.
Ready to learn!


Pony ride!

Playing on corn!

Dancing on stage.
Wizard of Oz corn maze.

The Tin Man.

Wicked Witch!


Pretty Balloons!

Our view from the balloon.

Really the only photo that turned out of the family in the balloon. Lol.

We did so much in such a short amount of time. We didn't get to do everything the ranch offers. So I am sure we will be back! :)

Celebrating Mom's 70th Birthday!

Over the weekend my mom, sister, baby Hadley, and I went on a short trip to Rabun County.
Elaine's husband's family has a close family friend that has an AMAZING lake house.
Paul pulled us a favor, and asked the family friend if we could use their house to celebrate our mom over the weekend.
We had no idea how special this place is! Every room looks like it was ripped from the pages of Southern Living, or Better Homes and Gardens.
Seriously luxurious!
Anywho, there is no way our weekend could have been better!
Here are a few lovely pictures to give you an idea of our few special days together.
Honestly I couldn't capture every inch of awesome, but here is my best shot!
The view our first morning.

Just such a happy, fun baby!

Peek a boo!

The Birthday Cake!

                                               The home.
