Saturday, we joined a gaggle of LJ friends for the first annual LJ Meetup coordinated by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] mrs__smith  at Stone Mountain. It was an absolute hoot! We spent the afternoon lazing around under the trees while the children climbed trees, kicked around soccer balls, and ran themselves ragged.

Here's a picture of most of the womenfolk and children:  (It's impressive that [livejournal.com profile] lemon_says 's four-year old took it!)

Katie was off chasing a soccer ball or waving at a passing train or something. The men evaded being in the picture by taking various versions of this shot!

Every thirty minutes, the Stone Mountain train would come by to the delight of the children. Here's Amelia announcing it to all gathered:

Lemon-says's wheelchair was one of the most popular attractions of the day. We had to stop the children from giving each other rides down the hill. "No!  Do not push your sister/brother/friend down into traffic!"

I can't wait until the next one. :D

Heh.. that's awesome.

If I met up with everyone in LJ, it would mean quite a few areas:
Florida, NC, NYC, Texas, Idaho, California, and prolly another state or so. I'm jealous :)

This was a very localized and specialized meet-up. :) As in, "If you happen to be in the metro area, don't have football tickets to the Georgia or Georgia Tech games, and happen to be on mrs--smith's friends list, show up!" It was a really nice way to spend a warm fall afternoon.

I can't even imagine trying to get together with all of my friends list. Goodness. Some of my closest friends are in Minnesota and California!

Dude, I'd have put in there otherwise "(Not you, JESSICA!)" for clarity. :D

That looks like so much fun! <3 *hughug*
I will be getting my wheelchair soon - it's motorized and bright tangerine orange. Clearly I need to visit and wow the children?
