Inner tubes, beach umbrellas and picnic baskets were spread out along the shores of Lake Lanier at Mary Alice Park this past weekend. Chris and Shelly Young traveled from Ellenwood, near Stockbridge, to the park to spend Saturday afternoon with their friend Rachel Johnson and her 3-year-old son Dylan. The Youngs brought their children, Paige, 3, and Evan, 1.“It’s [Evan’s] first time at the beach,” said Shelly Young.
