I cannot think of a better way to spend a Saturday. Seriously.
Have you ever had a day you realized was perfect while it was happening? They are rare, I'll admit. But I experienced it this weekend.
It all started with my nephew's 6th birthday. He wanted to go to Stone Mountain, so my brother and his wife invited us to go as well. Then, my niece, who is in college, said she was free the same weekend. We asked her to come with us, and she brought her roommate.
We spent the entire scorching day at Stone Mountain Park doing everything we could while we were there. We hiked. We mini-golfed. We drank lots of water only to watch us all become drenched with sweat in minutes. My nephew was the embodiment of joy the entire day, reminding us all to try and look at the world through the eyes of a six-year-old.
It was awesome.
We stayed until the sun went down and watched the laser show--the first time I had seen it since I was in high school. Perfect.
One of the neatest aspects of the day had to be the fact Stone Mountain is not far from my house. However, we hadn't been there in more than a decade. I always find it so refreshing when you realize there are so many awesome things to experience near your home.
Before I leave you, let me show you something my brother had made for the Star Runners Universe.
Is he great or what?
