Chattanooga, Tennessee

After we left Georgia, we went to Chattanooga.  What a fun city!  We hit up the aquarium, had lunch at Mellow Mushroom, went to the Imax Theater, Children's Museum and Rock City Garden of Lights all in one day!










Lucas made a friend at the children's museum :)


Riley the dinosaur


Rock City Garden of lights ended on top of Lookout Mountain - fun!


On the last day of our trip we just hung out and swam in the pool.  Everyone needed a little R&R!

Trip back to Blairsville

The kids were off school the whole week of Thanksgiving and I was feeling like we could use a change of scenery so we decided to take a little trip for a few days.  It turned out to be a great trip!  Riley was happier than we've seen her lately, and she ate a TON which is always a plus!  We first went to Blairsville, Georgia to visit friends and see where we used to live.

We played

We enjoyed the beautiful weather


We went to Vogel State Park and hiked to the waterfall





Played some more

And took a walk to see our old  house
What a view!

The house looks great, sometimes I miss it!

We did a lot for only being there a day and a half.  It was great to see our old friends!

Someone isn't feeling too hot


We never like it when our kids are sick, but we especially hate when Riley gets sick.  She is too skinny as it is and when she doesn't eat much for a few days it can stress us out a bit!  Thankfully she is on the mend and it looks like her appetite is starting to return.  When I took her to the doctor she weighed in at 32.5 pounds.  Way too little for a 7 year old!  She has an appointment with a GI doctor at the end of this month, hopefully he will have some suggestions on how to fatten our girl up!
