Since I didn't go, I will have to use my imagination to blog about their fabulous trip. One note: this is only the 4th time Sam has been away from me overnight. It was the very first time for me to be in my own home without Sam. It was strange. Quiet and productive, but strange.
Here they are, ready to go
It takes about 5 hours or so to get to Atlanta from here. I am not sure what they did on the way, but they met Jimmy's cousin, Warren, and his 4 year old boy for supper at the Varsity. Then they all went to a Braves game!
Sam at the top of the stadium. They had seats much closer to the field, but Jimmy said that Sam got restless after a little while, so they walked up to the top.
After the game, the boys spent the night with Warren and Holly and their family. The next morning they left to spend some time at Stone Mountain.

Although it was a very hot day, Jimmy, Clay, and Sam enjoyed many outdoor activities at Stone Mountain.

Sam's hair-do after all of that playing in the hot sun.
When they got inside the car to begin their trip home, the thermometer confirmed what they already knew--it was a hot day!
Jimmy and boys stopped by the Bass Pro Shop in Birmingham on their way home. Since it was air-conditioned, they really enjoyed their time there.
Although I got a whole lot done while they were gone, I missed them terribly. The house was very quiet! The girls enjoyed two full days of leisure, and I worked almost constantly in my schoolroom.
I think I am completely ready for school!!
