We spend the afternoon in Chattanooga not long ago, and somehow I completely skipped posting the pictures.
My good friend Amanda's husband, Lyle is a teacher and his class was touring several different locations. We decided to join them on the riverboat tour.
While we waited for our turn to board we played at a nearby park and Emily Anne went down the "big slide" for the very first time all by herself. It was an exciting moment - but mostly it was stressful for her mommy!
Of course, there had to be more then one time!
On the riverboat tour we ate a yummy lunch while rocking on the waves and watching the world go by.
We got to see the famous Delta Queen which is in the process of being restored.
We also so saw some turtles, birds and very beautiful insects, but for some reason, I didn't seem to catch pictures of any of that....
The boys loved meeting the captain, and looking out through the front window.
After our riverboat tour we went to the park and tried out some interesting musical instruments. My boys always enjoy a chance to make noise...
And amazingly enough, these made some beautiful noises!
Then, the crown jewel of the afternoon, the carousel ride.
Look at the detail on these hand carved wooden pieces. Aren't they amazing?
