"Chatta-choo-ga-na"

Yesterday we decided to take a road trip to Chattanooga for the day with our good buddies M & S. Although our destination (The Children's Discovery Museum) was a real hit, the roadtrip proved to be great fun itself. Four 4 year olds + one 3 year old in tight quarters for 3 hours = LOTS of silliness and giggles.
In 3 1/2 weeks these little faces will be back in school...5 DAYS A WEEK! I really cannot believe our days of weekday adventures are coming to a close.

As a sidebar, I HIGHLY recommend the Chattanooga Creative Discovery Museum. We spent over 3 hours there and left without experiencing everything...and at $8.95 a person it is a good deal!

I LOVE Chattanooga. I lived about 20 minutes outside of the city for a couple years, and it has been my favorite place I ever lived. Glad you guys had a great time, and the pictures are TOO cute!

We went last year and loved it. We have a membership to the Aquarium and love that, too.

It is so much fun and so kid-friendly. Glad you got to enjoy.

I know you are loving your leisurely time with them this summer..but I assure you that the teachers (including me!) are excited about having the children come back to the classroom with all their love, energy and wonder!

I live just a few minutes from Chatt! (I'm a college roommate of Brandy's -- who posted above!). I was just at the CDM a couple of weekends ago! It is the BEST place for kids -- so many fun things to do at a great price. I loved all the emphasis on art, too!

I am originally from Lookout Mtn (although over on GA. side) near Chattanooga. One of the places we love to visit while visiting the grandparent's is the Discovery Museum. They have some great things to do and my kids loved it, too.
Your little R would love to go next door to the Lookout's game, too.
Chattanooga as a whole has worked hard to make their downtown a tourist destination. Lots of fun things to do there! The Aquarium and river walk are great fun....as is the park on the other side of the river -- Chastian park. Sprinklers AND a merry go round!
