Okay, so the blog is not back as much as I anticipated. But there are so many blog worthy moment lately that I am going to backtrack and the move forward in double time. (or at least I say:)
But in February we went to Chattanooga (Chattaboogie as we call it) with some very good friends of ours for a little weekend trip. We had such fun and it was so nice to get out of town and away from all the responsibilities I left behind in Nashville for 2 nights. Our friends, the Ballews, have twins, Minor and Maston, Hunter's age and then a little boy, Bowen, who is turning 2 this month. So that means, we had 5 boys 4 and under. If you have a boy then you can sympathize immediately!
But we started out leaving after the Daddys got off of work on Friday. Chattanooga is only 2 hours away (door to door) so we got there in time for dinner and had adjoining rooms so after we ate we put a movie on for the kiddos in one room and we hung out in the other. This is what we found...
I mean seriously? How adorable/unbelievable is that?? Those were some major sleepyheads!
But then next morning we were excited to get to the Aquarium (or Acreamium as Drake called it)
And the first stop was the sting rays...and we even got to feed them! Check out the boys faces and hands...
|Sheer excitement and Fear!|
|Me feeding a sting ray, NOT a highlight of my life! (check out Hunty's face)|
|I love the boys faces here and the fact that Drake started grabbing the leg of the wrong man|
Then on to the Butterfly Garden which Hunty loved and STILL wants to go back to all the time. Drake on the other hand was terrified.
And next stop: the Penguins! As cute as they were, however, I couldn't help but think of the movie "Happy Feet" which made me instantly sad to be in there with them. But they boys of course loved them
|A typical attempt at a picture of those silly boys!|
But then...on to find the SHARKS!!!!!
