After a visit to Tallulah Falls and Goats On the Roof we headed home until we decided to make a quick side trip to Clayton. This included a stop at the Hillside Orchard Farm. What a pleasant and fun spot. The highlight for me was a ride behind a small tractor that took us around the barnyard and crops. On the ride we stopped at the barnyard and were able to get off and walk around to observe the animals up close and a bit smelly. My favorites were the donkey family. Festus, the Pop, greeted us with loud braying and even a donkey smile. Jenny, the small white one and Mama, to June Bug, the larger brown one, also came right to the a group of us. Of course the fact that the driver, aka Grandpa, fed them apples didn't hurt the family of three's friendliness
We took our friends up to the Georgia Mountains this Saturday. Man, it was glorious Autumn day. The leaves are changing enough to make the trees look like a blanket of color. We discovered the Hillside Orchard Farm with an awesome country store full of jellys, jams, breads and fruit. I never seen so many variations of cider! We took a hay ride, heard some good music and strolled the grounds.

In less than a week I was back at Stone Mountain for the day. Beautiful weather, good friends and a chance to have a relaxing day. Priscilla was taken with the park and we only visited a small part of it. Beto liked it well enough but can't understand why trees keep getting planted when there are too many of them already ---------and he loves the outdoors. LOL
We took our guests to Stone Mountain Park today. Mainly to look for souvenirs. My mom had discovered this covered bridge the weekend before so we look them to see it. What a nice surprise. Our weather has been so nice. Air is crisp, sun very bright and warm. October has been fantastic to be outside!

Fall is here! We spent the day in downtown Atlanta sightseeing with our friends from back home. Took them to the old standards: CNN and World of Coke. Was delighted to see the trees are starting to change.
Some favorite pics of nature switching seasons...

Company is here so somethings like mail are going to be set aside for a few days. Look at the signs of the Fall season and weather in Atlanta, including all surrounding areas. Who wants to bother with bills, political flyers, advertisements or even grocery shopping.

My mom has been trying so hard to grow tomatoes here in Georgia. We just not have had the conditions to do it. Her plants have been moved over and over again, blown around in wind storms, pounded with rain, etc. So here are her four little babies she has sitting in the greenhouse window sunbathing. ;>

I know we talked about this back in 2010 when the Giants were in the playoffs but here I go again. Holy moly, I cannot take many more games that go past 1:30am. Living on the East Coast is TORTURE during the post season but especially when it's our Gigantes. My ability to function at work is very limited.
