We started our two week stint with my mom joining us for a few days. We had some great time to relax together and journeyed into the neighboring town of Helen. This is an alpine themed village that has a lot of things for the family to do. We started our day in Helen with a picnic in the local park.
Then, the kids tried their hands at a fun game of mini-golf.
On our way back to the cabin, we stopped and tested our luck at panning for gold and gems.
On our last day together, we spent some time at the FAMOUS...."Goats on the Roof"! Just kidding; I wouldn't expect anyone to have ever heard of this crazy place! But, the name says it all; there are goats on the roof.
After feeding the goats and snacking on some yummy ice cream, Nana and Poppy went on their way back to the big city! (Where you will not find goats on a roof! Ha!)
Hey, those goats look familiar!!
One day we hiked down to the Chattooga River.
One of my favorite places! It is beautiful!
After a little picture taking and lingering on the rocks, we came across this little fella! Needless to say, we stayed away from his "home" from that point on!
Me and my swim buddy!
This picture cracks me up!!! Zac loves playing in the river and jumping from rock to rock -- but here, he lost his footing and couldn't make it over in one jump. The look on his face is priceless! **He did make it across and went back and forth about 100 more times!
