Chattanooga/Chickamauga

Kids are asleep and my wireless is working tonight so had to blog about the wonderful time we had this week with Pam and her family. Pam is a blog buddy from homeschool blogger and has also been my trip advisor lol. The kids were soooo excited and had counted down the days.




We met in Chattanooga Tennessee where we were staying and rode the Incline Railway which was amazing (and not really as scary as it looks). From the top (lookout mountain) we got fantastic views of Tennessee and Georgia. It is such a beautiful place and it would have been easy to spend a day there just watching the paddle boats on the river.

From here we went to lunch at Steak and Shake - another neat dining experience. We've never tasted shakes like it! Then onto Chickamauga (Georgia) to visit the battle fields.




CJ has requested that he blog about the visit to the stream, fire snappers and the rest. But I must mention that we went back to Pam's house for a lovely meal - and even went away with some of the scrumptious desserts which we indulged in late in to the night once the kids were asleep, hehe. Thank you so much Pam - your caramel pie and brownie trifle as soooooo good and tell your MIL that we really enjoyed her cake :)

It was great to meet you all and found it hard to extract the kids from your house. I can see why the neighbour's kids have adopted you lol. Next time you'll have to come visit us!

You know of course you could have easily left your children and we would have taken them all!
Everyone is still talking about what a delight they were and how fun it was to meet you. We wanted you to stay longer!
We would love for you to come stay with us the next time you come over.

I am glad your two families connected. You all have been connecting via the internet for a bit. It is sooooo nice to make blogging friends more real by meeting them.

Blessings and ((HUGS)) my SSiC

I am trying to not be jealous, but it's not working!

Hubby and I grew up not far from there and I am hoping to meet Pam the next time we are in that area. I never appreciated all the history of the area while living there, but would love to take my boys to see some of the sites.
