Weekend Wrap Up {A day late}

*This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but for some reason (my error) yesterday's and today's got switched*

Whew. The last few days have been a whirl wind. 
I'm in the final days of summer up on the mountain, I leave tomorrow. 
But I'm ready. I'm homesick, miss my doggie, and am ready to have my own bed again!

Anyways, this past weekend was super busy, but fun-filled at the same time.
I'm wrapping it up for ya today!

We spent the day outside ATVing, fishing, fire building, and bird house building. 
My grandpa, cousin, and I worked on hoisting the birdhouse we handmade because if it's not suspended, the birds won't nest  due to those silly squirrels.  
We finished the day with watching, my current favorite movie, The Breakfast Club.


We woke up early to go back to Chick-fil-a to have their breakfast buffet.

mmmmm.... So good. Because the picture is a bit blurry, I will gladly go into detail of what my breakfast consisted of:
Grits, Bacon, Eggs, Biscuits, Chicken, Sausage, potatoes.
ahhh, I'm telling you, it's amazing. 

Then, we went to Goodwill and found a couple of things. 
{I came out with two new books!}

After that, we went over to tour Berry College. It was such a cool experience. 
Martha Berry was such an amazing woman who really revolutionized education in the United States!
By the way, does the picture above look familiar to you?
Well, it does to me! This was the plantation house they used in the movie "Sweet Home Alabama", which just so happens to be a favorite of mine. 

Our trip was cut short because our Sweet Jakey, got sick. 
So, we headed back up the mountain. 

Later that evening, we went over to Cloudland Canyon State Park for their annual Star Party!

A professor came and taught us all about summer stars, then once it got dark enough, we set up these huge technical telescopes and looked at the stars. It was clear enough that we could see Saturn! I've never seen a planet up close like that before, so I thought it was pretty amazing. 

better known as hodge-podge day

We did a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.
First, My nana and I made the best french toast ever. 
Then we worked it off by working outside in the heat. 
We were trying to re-uposlter a chair and literally had to pick the glue off with screwdrivers. 
Don't worry, I'll show you guys the before and after!

Then, we cooled off by watching.... you guessed it
Sweet Home Alabama.
I just had to see the scenery we saw the day before.

Then, I made cookies. 

and we concluded the day by fishing!

Jakey caught a large bass

and I caught....

a log. 
Yep. I caught nothing. 

We had fun, nevertheless, 
and even Charlotte had to join in on the fun!

It was a great weekend and one I will remember forever.
Love you Nana and Papa!
and Jakey!
