to celebrate memorial day, we packed our lunches and went to red top mountain state park for some lake swimming!!! the park is only about 50 minutes from atlanta and offers great hiking trails, camping, cottages, lake swimming, miniature golf and even boat rentals. there’s lots to do for sure.

the swimming was nicer than expected, although fairly busy with the holiday. the water was super green and translucent and not too chilly. it only cost $5 to park for the day, so it was a nice inexpensive excursion. we will definitely be headed back!

on a side note, there was an o brother where art thou type baptism happening when we were at the lake. it was very interesting!

we got up at the crack of dawn and headed to the yellow river game ranch on groundhog day to see if georgia’s general beauregard lee would see his shadow. they claim he is 94% accurate, and we are always up for some agritourism, so we made our way to lilburn to see what it was all about. as the sun finally started to rise, the general came out of his house and did not see his shadow, predicting an early spring!

there was a fairly big turnout for the celebration, including various members of the press and medieval times. lots of people even brought signs to cheer on beau. waffle house was also on hand providing coffee and hot cocoa during the cold, foggy morning.

afterwards we walked around the ranch to check out the other animals before heading to dunkin donuts for a little treat for the kids! oh, we also watched bill murray’s groundhog day, as per holiday tradition!
