Stone Mountain

 We took a trip to Stone Mountain to the see the laser show last weekend.
 This was Emily's first trip to Stone Mountain Park.
 The rest of us have not been in a while either. 
 It was starting to fill up on the lawn so 
 Karl grabbed our blankets to stake out our place while the rest of us rode to the top of the mountain.
 Jolie had been to the mountain earlier but doesn't remember it...
 It was very cool and breezy on top of the mountain....very relaxing.
 You could see the Atlanta skyline in the distance although it was hazy.
 Shek and his selfies.
 Jolie poses for me.
 Emily took several photos of Jolie...I love this's so carefree
She captured such joy just moments before Jolie fell and scrapped her knee. We headed inside found the park ranger and got a band aid...and headed back down the mountain to show Daddy...

Soon the laser show started and we saw all the old favorites of the show and some new things too...

Summer memories....are the best.

Just Keep Swimming

 Jolie started swimming lessons last week.
 On Day One, Mrs Sloan reads a book to the class about swimming safety.
 Mrs. Sloan and her Daughter were the teachers. Jolie knows them well as we carpool with them.
 Making a blow fish face...
 floating on the back with Isabella
 Learning to float
 Waiting for a turn

 GET your whole head wet
 Learning strokes from Ms. Bella
 Swimming lessons are fun.

  1.  Practicing the strokes

 More practice
 Learning the strokes in the water
 Swallowing a little water.

 Time to dive for pennies...
Jolie found seven pennies...

Swimming lessons were fun; We will be heading back again for another week of swimming lessons next week...

I love shoes, Karlie loves makeup and clothes, Jolie loves playdough,  Zach loves guitars, Karl loves boats..but Shek? He loves socks.

Everytime we go to the store, Shek checks out the socks. He gets a new pair, calls or texts Gam to tell her about it, takes photos of them ....He loves his socks. He has all these fancy athletic socks. He loves getting a deal on them at Marshalls or TJ Maxx.

Shek and Zach take an afternoon walk...but first, Shek finds his awesome socks.

These are his latest socks. I love the neon color... These are the current favorite.

Headed to tennis sporting some awesome socks.

Just Married

 Just Married....24 years ago....
It's hard to believe that it has been 24 years since these two kids got married.

Even though it seems like yesterday...
there's been a lot of memories over the years
