Chattanooga Catch-Up (15-16 February )

I've fallen off the blogging wagon and fallen hard. But here's a little catch-up fun. 

We took a short trip to Chattanooga - it's only about an hour away from us. What a great town! We're already talking about what we'll do the next time we are up there.


View of the Hunter Museum of American Art from the Walnut Street Walking Bridge - one of the world's longest pedestrian bridges. We didn't get to go into the museum this time, but enjoyed all the outside art that we found around the museum and the Art District. 

On the other side of the bridge in Northshore, we had some wonderful ice cream at Clumpies Ice Cream (I enjoyed pumpkin spice and Aztec spice dark chocolate - yum!). More walking around, including peeking into some cool shops, a stop at Cooleridge Park to ride the carousel, playing in the park and then finally dinner at Taco Mamasita's. So good - and a locally sourced restaurant!






After another swim at the hotel, we all had a good nights sleep to get ready for breakfast and - another swim in the pool. After drying out we spent all day at the Tennessee Aquarium. There is so much to see, that we had to stop for lunch and come back to finish! Lunch was at Good Dog, another locally sourced restaurant and lots of fun for the kids. 







(The kids are lying down in the glass dome to watch the shark and rays swim by.)


Yes, Nazeriah was with us - she just want interested in having any pictures taken ...

There was an amazing jellyfish exhibit, lots of star fish, and a wonderful sea horse exhibit. Even had dragon sea horses! We will definitely come back.
