Mimi, Grandpa, Max and I spent the day at Stone Mountain Christmas. We stayed all day and had a great time. We saw The Polar Express 4D Experience and it was so cool. During the show it snowed. We thought that was the best!

We took the sky lift to the top of the mountain and enjoyed looking out at the Atlanta skyline. We rode the train twice. The second time was the Christmas sing-along train. One of Max’s favorite things was The Great Barn. This is Stone Mountain’s big playhouse. It’s full of slides, balls for shooting, and tunnels.

Max got to hear Mrs Clause tell stories at her gingerbread house, see Rudolph and the Abominable Snowman, and watch a beautiful parade that ended with a visit with the big man himself, Santa.

We had such a great time. In the car home, I looked over and found Maxipoo asleep. Fun Times.

We all got ready and went to Stone Mountain Christmas for the day. We enjoyed a fun day of riding the park’s train, riding to the top of the mountain in a cable car, and watching the The Polar Express in 4D. We also played in the ball barn. The barn is a fun house full of rope, slides, and balls. This was a lot of fun! We did have a tiny scare while in the ball house when we lost Max. We all fanned out and found him pretty quickly.

We left Stone Mountain around 4:30 pm. Max was super-tired and fell asleep on the ride home. When we got home I took him up to bed. He slept for a short while and awoke in a bad mood. He served many timeouts, and finally Jaddie took him back up to bed.

We’re all about to settle in for the night. We had a lot of fun and did so much walking today. We’re all very tired.

Today started around 7:30 when we heard lil’ man chatting from his crib. After a little Barney we headed downstairs to play with his trains. It wasn’t long before Grandpa showed up with breakfast for all of us. Grandpa rocks!

We had a big adventure today at Stone Mountain Park. Mimi, Grandpa, Max, and I went for the day and had big fun! Jaddie stayed behind because he’s still a little under the weather. We watched the Polar Express 4D. It was so cool. During the movie it snowed, the seats shook, and the sweet smell of chocolate engulfed our noses. After the movie we rode the train around the mountain. When the train blew its whistle, Max blew his Thomas the Train whistle, which he calls “Toot-Toot Pas.” It was super-cute! While at the park we visited the plantation farm. Max enjoyed chasing the goats, but I can’t say they enjoyed it much! It was so surprising that they even tolerated it, but I guess the resident goats are accustomed to wild kids.

The most fun we had was at the barn. The barn is a place where the whole family can play on slides, climbing nets, and trampoline floors. They also had a ball machine that Max really loved. You put balls into the machine and they shoot into other parts of the room. Balls were going everywhere and it was a lot of fun. We were sure Max would not ever want to leave, but he left without a fight.

Max didn’t have a nap at all today. This is the first full afternoon in Max’s whole life in which he’s missed his nap. And, believe it or not, he stayed in a good mood for most of the day. It was a little hard to settle him down when he got home because he had not seen his daddy much today and just had to play with him.

This was another great day!
