A day out at Stone Mountain Park @seektheweekend #StoneMountainPark #family

I won a family four pack of tickets to Stone Mountain Park through the web site Seeking the Weekend.  My family spent a day out at Stone Mountain Park yesterday. We started the day off by canoeing on the lake for about an hour and a half. Enjoyable, but tiring. It was actually my daughter's idea. She got the idea that she wanted to go canoeing. When I won tickets, it gave us the motivation to go.

When we got off the water, we headed over to Crossroads for lunch and other activities.  My only complaint here is that lunch was EXPENSIVE.  It was an okay meal (we ate at Campfire Grill), but still cost way too much.   We made our way through Crossroads, stopping for a little bit to watch the glass blowing demonstration.  We walked up to the train station as it was loading, so we took advantage of it and loaded up.  There were no stops like there used to be.  You used to be able to get on/off at the trail to climb the mountain, that wasn't an option this time.  There was a "show" of sorts, using trivia that the host gives you on the ride.  Your car has a actor/player as does the other cars.  They then compete in various "events" to see who will win.

When we got off the train, we decided to play a round of putt-putt (mini golf).

We were very hot at this point and getting to the point of being ready to stop.  So we headed over to the cable cars and went to the top of the mountain.

All together we had a great day as a family.  We didn't use the tickets to do the ropes course or check out the dinosaurs that were out there..  Canoeing took a lot more out of us that we expected, especially in the heat.
