A really Great day!

Couldn't wait to get to Fort Benning this morning to pick up
our Brandon at the Ranger compound behind the brown fence

Brandon couldn't wait to show his grandpa
all the modifications he's made to the GTI

And his Grandpa... The Captain, couldn't
wait to inspect the PFC Ranger's barracks!

Something about these boots wasn't
quite up to the Captain's inspection!

Our first stop was the Atlanta Cyclorama. Dad said they
can now Check this off their bucket list! It was checked off
my bucket list the First time we visited it a few months ago!

After the Cyclorama we headed over to Stone Mountain. I enjoy the park
at Stone Mountain and was happy to have Brandon and Heather with us!

Up, up and Away we go!


Snow Mountain looks pretty cool too! 

Here they are at the Top!

I love Covered Bridges!

And geese!

Brandon asked Heather to go on the bridge with him. She
said no because she doesn't like Old wooden bridges

But Brandon wasn't taking No for an answer...

And, that's how Heather ended up on the old covered bridge!

After our nature walk at Stone Mountain Park it was time for
dinner. Ever since we discovered The Village Corner German
restaurant and Bakery at Stone Mountain village we've made it our
stop for lunch or dinner at least once during every trip to see Brandon 

This time, the Captain and his Ranger-grandson enjoyed a German beer together

This was indeed a really Great day!
