Stone Mountain

While Mom and Dad were here, we went to see Stone Mountain, which is basically a giant confederate monument. Below, you can see the carving of Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis. At night, they project a laser show on the side of the mountain. 

Mom and Dad before the show

I was a little skeptical about the laser show, but it was actually really fun! Everyone laid out blankets and set up lawn chairs out on the grass. They played a bunch of country music and songs about Georgia and the South that went along with the show. It was just a good excuse to get outdoors and lay under the stars. I tried to get a video of the laser show, but it was too dark to really see what was going on.

The real treat of the night, however, was getting to watch this guy. Before the show, he was busy showing off his hacky-sack skills. Once the sun went down, we figured the show was over. Nope! He came prepared! He pulled out his headband flashlight and kept on hacky sacking. His teenage sons also got up and started dancing during some of the laser show. Quite the family.
