Weekend Fun!

Tim A. Cummins @ 6:50 pm  

Saturday, Kathy and I hiked half way up Stone Mountain.  It was kind of sprinkling, but still beautiful.  Very peaceful.  Nice restful day.
I also thought that the Snow Mountain attraction (new this year!) was really cool. K and I want to go down it once it’s open.
I taught the kids how to shoot a rifle yesterday. I’m a real pro-nature, live and let live, bird feeding kind of guy. But when I was younger I used to hunt and shoot guns a lot.
Sunday morning we went over to see our friends at Truth Tabernacle of Praise church with Pastor Bobby Atkins.  He did a great job.  We especially enjoyed the music.

This afternoon we went to see the First Emperor exhibit of the terracota soldiers from China at the High Museum.  It was awesome. 
The only downside to the exhibits is that I’m not allowed to take pictures.  Part of me doesn’t feel like I’ve really seen it unless I also see it through the lens of a camera.

It’s also the final year of the partnership with the Louvre/High.  This final year is the Masterpiece editions.  I especially enjoyed the painting of the Astronomer by Vermeer.  I also saw a piece of pottery from Mesopotamia that was over 4,000 years old!  Kathy said, “Doesn’t that make you feel young?”  Have to admit, it did.
