Memorial Day weekend was great fun! I loaded my pictures backwards by accident, so here's the weekend wrap-up in reverse! lol. We spent Sunday and Monday in Chattanooga and had a great time! We ended Monday at the Chattanooga Aquarium steps to play in the water and a trip to get ice cream! Lily is such a little water bug... I hope her having a cast doesn't spoil her summer (she broke her arm this past weekend - more on that later). We are going to do everything we can to be creative and have lots of summer fun that keeps that cast dry! :-)
Before we went to play in the water, we took a boat ride!
Lily plays "boat" all the time! She likes to pretend she is on a ship with her American Girls! So, we decided to have lunch Monday and head down town to ride the Chattanooga Ducks! Mom and I have always talked about doing it just to get a little history and because we rode the Ducks in Seattle when we went! So, mom, dad, me, Chris, and Lily had a big lunch at Cracker Barrel and then surprised Lily with a Duck ride! It drives along the riverfront downtown and then drives right into the river (it's a former WWII land/water craft) and takes a tour of the TN river complete with nature sitings and history!
This is Lily helping Grandmommy decorate cupcakes for the party!
These two are inseparable - Lily's like my mom's little shadow! It's really fun for both of them! Chris was fishing at one point this weekend at the pond and Lily was out there with him. Lily came back in and I asked her where she was headed and she said, "Wherever Grandmommy is." LOL!!! Too. Cute. I have to admit myself, my mom is a pretty awesome gal and she knows how to make every ordinary day a fun celebration of life! :-)
