Early morning wake up call. 5 AM. I slept over Amanda’s, so we enjoyed drinking coffee and chatting in the wee hours of the morning. At 6, we headed to Atlanta to pick up the older brother to take on Stone Mountain.
That mountain is something else. I have never conquered a terrain such as Stone Mountain. I have done Kennesaw Mountain, but that is all dirt trails.
I had a good time conquering this beast with the older siblings. We chatted and pushed each other to the top.
After the mountain, we decided to get stop and get some doughnuts at one of the best doughnut shops in the Atlanta area. Boy, they were the real deal. I got a toasted almond and a chocolate frosted yeast doughnut. I also sampled the bacon maple doughnut and chocolate peanut butter banana fritter. All were so dang good.
Later, we all went our separate ways and showered and whatnot. Bryan and I had an appointment to meet with a woman who breeds AKC Golden Retrievers. We drove about 75 minutes and when we met the puppies, we fell in love with a chunky little guy. We signed the papers and were on our way. We named him Apollo after the Greek mythological sun god.
For the rest of the day, we watched football and played with the little chunkster, and tried to get him acquainted to his new home. He warmed up pretty easily. He is so sweet and loves to play.
It was a wonderful day!
