Spring Break Adventures

We started our fun-filled week with a trip to the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. We were even so lucky to have Nana join us. (Nana is my mom!) We went to the Ocoee Whitewater Center - where they held the Olympic Whitewater Rafting.

We stayed at our little cabin in the woods!

We also did simple, little fun things like going to the park and a picnic in the woods! We all had a great time! (There's a touching story about a man we met named "Kilroy". I'll share this with you in the future!)

Later in the week, John, myself and the kids went to Chattanooga, TN. We lived in Chattanooga for about five years and Sam was born there! John's parents and sister live there too, so we were able to have fun doing excursions and seeing family! We met John's parents (Grandma and Grandpa) at the zoo and started our day with a picnic.

I just love this zoo! It is small, but has a great variety of animals and rarely a crowd! When Sam was a baby, I would take him there and I'd give him his bottle in the enclosed chimpanzee exhibit! (Weird? yes. Fun? yes,yes!) Maybe this chimp recognized him! He was drawn to Sam and walked right over and stared at him for a good 10 minutes! Chimps are really amazing!

Then we went to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo, to the local park, out to eat at "our" old pizza place and then on to the Chattanooga Lookouts Minor League Baseball game! Whew!

What happens after this much fun? Taa-daa....

The week was fun and tiring! But what a great way to spend some quality family time! 'Til next time....
