All Aboard The Chattanooga Choo Choo

You may have noticed I haven't been blogging or tweeting lately.  Andria, Blake, and I just got back from our first family vacation in Chattanooga, TN. Blake spent nearly 16 hours in a car seat (round trip) and behaved perfectly.  Andria sat in the backseat with him and kept him entertained.

Chattanooga is a great city with so much stuff to do with kids and families.  The two Aquariums are awesome.  The salt water aquarium,  just built a few years ago, features the "Penguins' Rock" exhibit.  As you will see in the video, Blake didn't like it much, but eventually warmed up to the creatures.  It's funny how the penguins scared him, but the 10 foot shark didn't. 

We also went to the Chattanooga Choo Choo gardens.  We took a few family pictures in the same pavilion I proposed marriage to Andria on December 23rd, 2002.

Cute shots Todd!Looks like you guys had a good time. The Weather is pretty boring..all the Tropical Systems are "fish" storms! You did miss a little bit of Hermine, but it was a glancing blow for us here in LR.
