Stone Mountain Park...part 1

We have found a magical place. As Blake said, it's the perfect place for our family. Here are just a FEW pics of the hundreds I took over the last two days. Hope you enjoy! This is Stone Mountain Park... Emery is uber affectionate. And we all just eat it up. She was just kissing on Blake and I actually caught one on camera!

Cooper helping Emery play the games too! He is amazing with her, so patient and wants her to get to do everything. Not that Owen and Sadie aren't that way too, but there is something about Cooper and his Emery.

And somehow...if this day could get any better, we actually ran into Usher. THE Usher. The boys ran out in front of us and started playing with these kids and Blake looked up and thought, "That guy looks really familiar." Then it hit him and he walked over and told me. We were SO close and it took all I had to not make a fool of myself, but Blake reminded me that he was with his family. So I opted to take this picture of the back of his head. HA!

This place was so cool, it had air guns for the kids to shoot these soft balls in the air.

It's a bit fuzzy, and my hair is odd...but look! EMERY IS SMILING!!! This is her silly face. She is such a hoot!

This is her "whoa is me" face. She keeps us laughing!

Putt putt was a huge hit!!! Blake attempting to play putt-putt before Emery steals his ball. It was like soccer/golf. He was hoping I would put the camera down and get the baby...but this girl wants to BE IN IT. She loves being one of the big kids!

She found the train...

This is currently my fav style for her hair. It's just too cute and so fun! Remind me of this when I am needing hairstyles for school pics one day. Mkay?

Blake was in Miami this day. We stayed at the park for 5+ hours. It was a blast, but we were all pooped at the end of it! Owen took this for me! Thanks buddy!

Stone Mountain is HUGE. Calling it a park is a little misleading. We have spent about 13 hours there in total and still haven't seen it all. I found the lake with the kids and we had a blast just throwing rocks and sticks and talking to the ducks. Right as I went to snap the pic, she put it in her mouth. Nice.

At the playground. Notice below how Emery is too busying gabbing to take the picture!?

Thank you Gigi for helping us find this place and for our season passes!!! You have no idea how much fun this has brought us already! This was on the train ride.

She found the perfect pumpkin and was trying to pick it up!

Looks like so much fun! The one of all four of your blessings looking at the lake just made my heart smile. I mean what beauties they are and what a perfect family you make. Love it!
