Chattanooga Road Trip

Last week, we took a day trip to Chattanooga to visit the Tennessee Aquarium and Rock City, where you can see 7 states from Lookout Mountain. It was a lot of fun, one reason being that I love a good road trip, and the second reason being that I love hanging out with my husband and son. This trip entailed both. Score! I figure the best way and probably the most fun way to explain how our day went is to show it in pictures, so here goes:

Our Chattanooga Road Trip

This kid is ready to rock the aquarium. He's got his shades, his dino shirt...

Let's do this, people. Take me to the sea turtles.

Eric to Waylon - "Do you want to touch the fish?"

Waylon, with his hands clutched in a ball at his chest - "No."

Can I just say - What is up with this turtle's neck?

We have a turtle, and his neck is normal. This is icky!

He pointed out Nemo in this fish tank, or as he calls him "Mee-mo."

Waylon and Daddy hung out with some GIGANTIC spider crabs inside their tank!

We had a bit of a tickle-fest before lunch at TGI Fridays.

We all took off our flip-flops and walked in the waterways they had all over the place.

Seems like everyone was doing it on that hot day!

You can see 7 states from up there: Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina,

South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.

Can you see the face in the side of the stone? Look closely. Pretty cool, huh?

I actually bought one of the "See Rock City" birdhouses for the backyard.

Waylon had fun in the gift shop.

We had a lot of fun and realized that there are a lot of things in Chattanooga that we want to do, so we will probably be taking more day trips there. Why day trips? No hotel costs AND no having to kennel our 3 dogs. Our neighbor can let them out and feed them for us, if it's just a day. (Thanks again, Danielle!) Plus, it gives us a chance to get away for a day and see the beautiful Tennessee countryside. Oh, we also got some geocaches on the way back - just another reason to take some road trips. So, yay for us. Do you have any road trips planned for the summer?
