JAKES Day and Moccassin Creek

Yesterday, we headed up to Smithgall Woods to attend the Jakes Day by the National Wild Turkey Federation. The girls got to see lots of animals, including snakes, hawks, a owl, and turtles. Lulu and I had pictures take with a Harrison hawk on our heads. Lucy also got to shoot a BB gun. She is obssessed with all things law enforcement lately, including the show Cops. She enjoyed meeting all of the law enforcement guys. Or maybe she just has a thing for men in uniform, just like her mama. Yummers!

After Smithgall, we headed up to Moccassin Creek State Park to do a little fishing. How frustrating it is to see an assload of fish and not catch a single one. Lots of bites, but I think those fish are really saavy. Regardless, it was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the view. Lake Burton and Moccassin Creek are two of my favorite places. I would love to spend a week up there camping with the family. You can rent boats, bikes, canoes, kayaks, etc. They have a playground and a kiddie fishing pond. Really, we need a big, big tent and we are set.

Lulu and Scott went to Atlanta today to see a Braves game with his dad and his dad's great-grandson. Its Lulu's first game so I hope they have fun. Of course, Scott wore his Ryan Klesko jersey.
