Goats on the Roof!

One of the many places to visit on the way to my grandparent’s house is “Goats on the Roof”.  We have never been, but we always drive by on the way there and back.  This time Granddaddy Great promised to take us this time :)IMG_8499Goats on the RoofIMG_8485

It’s a little gift shop / snack bar.  They sell sandwiches and desserts along with all kinds of gift items.  But the best part is feeding the goats (on the roof!) One way to feed them is to pedal a bike that takes the food up to the top.  And let me tell you those goats are waiting!!IMG_8486IMG_8489IMG_8490IMG_8491IMG_8492IMG_8493IMG_8496IMG_8483IMG_8494

Jack found this bear hat and wanted to get a picture in it.IMG_8498IMG_8500IMG_8501

Jack was feeding them using a hand crank but the poor thing has the most sensitive eyes :) IMG_8502

As we were leaving we came around the corner and found the babies!!!  So adorable!!  We fed them and their momma.  Then we used lots of sanitizer!!IMG_8504IMG_8505IMG_8506

Summer Road Trip 2011

We headed out last weekend for our vacation!  We decided to go see my grandparents up in Clayton, GA.  It was wonderful….IMG_0974IMG_0994IMG_8421IMG_0981

Catching Lightning Bugs! (it was catch and release!) one actually worked it’s way out of the top holes and we had to ‘re-catch’ it in the living room!!


The big kids were so excited to take me on “their” trail to “their” waterfall this time.  As soon as Collin went down for a nap we hit the road.  It’s just right up my grandparent’s street.  Our walking sticks are courtesy of Granddaddy Great. He made them :)IMG_8423Clayton, GAIMG_8428IMG_8430

I just love the joy in their faces!


All the sparkles in the water!! Hailey thought it looked like glitter!!All the sparkles!

This is why it is ‘their’ trial:  Last Thanksgiving they hiked this for the first time with Granddaddy Great and his dog Daisy.  They stopped about halfway and carved their initials into this tree!

We made it to the waterfall (or water fountain like I called it more than once!) IMG_8443

There was this huge butterfly when we got there. I think it was having to wait for it’s wings to dry… it just stayed so close and then all of a sudden took off.Butterfly at WaterfallClayton, GAClayton, GAIMG_8448IMG_8449IMG_8456
