Lake Winnepesaukah

Today was one of the most fun days I can remember. We went to Lake Winnepesaukah ( you can check it out at )which is on the Tennessee/Georgia line. It is just about an hour drive from our front door and was SO MUCH FUN!!! This was Ramsey's first trip to an amusement park and boy did he have fun. I don't think I had been to lake Winnie since I was 16. It was just how I remembered it. Lake Winnie is much like Six Flags but is older, a little classy (if you dare to consider six flags classy), but much cheaper (you can even bring in your own coolers for drinks and snacks) and hardly any lines. It is like taking a step back in time. Ramsey was definitely fearless and was game for just about anything suggested. I was so proud of what a big boy he was and he was well behaved too. Here are a ton of pictures of our adventure: Ramsey and his cousin Ansley ready to go!: First stop, train ride around the park:Sitting with Nama: One of Ramsey's favorite was the motorcycles where he go to push the horn: Driving his bug: Boats: Cars. Of course he picked the jeep:

Ansley in pink: Big Slide: Ramsey enjoyed riding down with his Nama: Riding Dumbo with Papa Morgan: Me and Ansley: They also had a splash park (included in admission) for the kiddos. I had brought a change of clothes for Ramsey so I let him get totally wet: Getting his hair wet: Driving the antique cars: Across from the splash park was the HUGE playground. It was so not crowded that Ramsey pretty much had it all to him self and loved it!:

Sliding: In the middle of the park is this big lake that you can do peddle boats (also, included in admission) and they have lots of geese and these huge fish that will eat anything you toss them including popcorn, fries, and cheetos: Leaving the park with his own popcorn. Worn out but happy: The results of a day well spent:

Lake Winnie is the best value for your money by a mile. They have tons of adult rides but I didn't get too many pics of those. They have a roller coaster just like the Scream machine and Morgan and I rode it and had to wait in line like maybe 5 minutes. Nice! I can't wait to go back, but next time we're taking Cope for sure so he can see his brave, wild child in action!
