The long trip up here is 2 hours shorter now that we start from Americus instead of Thomasville - thankfully, b/c my child HATES riding in the car. My Mom and I started the trip Sunday - stopped by Newnan to see my grandmother and then on to Atlanta to stay with my sister and do some shopping. Baby Boy Raybon got a few things :)
Tuesday morning we took Hawkins to Lego Land in Atlanta and he loved it! He was a little young for most of the stuff, but there were some areas he could play in and get some energy out. Our hope was for him to take a good nap on the way to Cashiers, but it backfired BIG TIME. He threw a major temper tantrum at lunch and then again when I tried to put him in the car. His behavior was enough to put me into early labor - that child is strong!
So...he proceeded to cry 45 into the trip when he finally passed our for a whooping 30 minutes - seriously? He woke up crying right where he left off as if there were nails in his car seat. To top all that off we got a little lost and turned our trip into a 3 hour ride! Yuck.
All that is forgotten now b/c we are here! Beautiful view, cooler temps and this funny guy to hang out with.
He loves his Big Daddy's glasses
And he REALLY loves the awesome park in Cashiers. We have been every day so far. The only problem is that it is not in the shade at all and it has been pretty hot in the afternoons.
Eating a corn dog!
Aunt Nina arrives tomorrow and Daddy comes next week - we can't wait! I hope this heat wave passes quickly so we can put back on our sweatpants!
