Stone Mountain and Easter

On Good Friday we (Mom, Dad, Doug, Justin, and I) went to Stone Mountain. It is the world's largest outcropping of granite and it just happens to be located about 20-30 minutes from where we live. We hiked to the top of it. It was a gorgeous day and we all had a blast. We were worn out by the end, but it was worth it. If you are ever near Atlanta, you should visit Stone Mountain.

This was taken before we hiked it. We ended up directly above the carving at the very top.

This is at the top - right behind us it pretty much drops straight down and that is where the carving is that you can see in the first pic. We were facing the sun - can you tell?=)

The is what was behind us. We were standing in front of the building with the columns for the first picture.

Still at the top - it is amazing to me how trees can grow out of solid granite. How is that possible?

Skipping ahead to Easter Sunday...

We had a fabulous service Sunday morning and then came home and had a an amazing lunch. We had Chicken Deluxe (chicken breasts wrapped in bacon and dried beef, smothered in golden mushroom soup and sour cream, and baked for 4 hours), homemade yeast rolls, rice, and fresh broccoli with cheese sauce. It was sooooo good and I ate it all again last night! For dessert we had Four Layer Delight, and if you are lucky I will share that recipe later.=)

Here's two Easter pics:
