Update...And News About My Trip

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone !!! How is everyone today ? I hope you are all doing well. It has been raining these last couple of days in my neck of the woods. It has also been another week at work for me.

Anywho....I wanted to share some information about my trip to Stone Mountain Park with my family. My folks and I and my youngest niece Megan and my puppy Chip stayed at campsite #434 which turned out to be a pull through which my dad liked.

In the afternoon after we got set up and everything we went to eat at a place in Stone Mountain Park called "Ms. Katie's". The place was nice and the food was wonderful and quite delicious. They had good old fashioned Southern cooking. They had these onion petals and they were very very very good. I ordered the grilled Salmon with garlic mashed potatoes and macaroni-n-cheese which was quite good.

After eating we went to the theater in the park to see the movie "Journey To The Center of The Earth" which was in 4-D. Its always fun to go to the theater in Stone Mountain Park. They are now showing "The Polar Express" there in 4-D. I wish I could be there to see it since we left the day it began on Sunday.

Later on we got back to the campground. We waited at the campground until it was time for us to go to "Ride The Duck" which is a boat ride and a bus which goes through the park. Our captain was named Roy and he was quite a fun captain. We really enjoyed him being our captain.

After Riding The Duck we then drove to Target and I found some cute Christmas stickers and ornaments. Then we went to eat at a Mexican restaurant which wasn't all that good.

We then got back to camp and I can say that our first day at camp was quite fun. On our first day at camp we also went to an Indian Pow Wow across the street from Stone Mountain Park which was quite interesting.

The next day my folks and I and my niece packed up our camper and our new puppy and we drove home. My oldest niece decided to NOT go with us since she spent the night at a friend's house.

Going to Stone Mountain Park was a nice trip and we had fun. I can't wait to go back to Stone Mountain Park. My folks and I and my youngest niece and my puppy had a great time. My puppy Chip did NOT try to escape or anything he just stayed with us at the campground. We did NOT bring him into the park however.

So how was your day my dear world ? Have you had a great week so far ? Of course the Thanksgiving holiday is almost here. I did purchase our Thanksgiving turkey.

At my work they are already putting up the 16 and a half foot Christmas tree in the front lobby of my work and it is huge let me tell you. Are you getting ready for Christmas ???

At the moment I am reading the book "One Shot" by the writer Lee Child which is a very good book. Here is the website for the writer ----> .

That's all for now. Take care everyone.

I am glad that you, your family and your new pup had such a good time camping. Yes, it's been raining here but yesterday it did not and we had sunshine about half a day. I hope you all get in another camping trip before winter sets in and you have to winterize the camper. Hugs, Helen
