Chattanooga Getaway Part 1

Matt had a 4 day weekend and the kids were off from school today so we decided to go on a little getaway.  We headed just up the road to Chattanooga.  We used hotel points and food gift cards to make it a pretty inexpensive trip.  The kids were so excited.  They love anytime we get to stay in a hotel!  We left Sunday right after church.  Our first stop was the Tennessee Aquarium.  
 The kids really enjoyed the ocean side and seeing the sharks.  We got to see divers in the big tank.

 My favorite was the wall of amazing jellyfish.  So cool!
 Kate made friends with this little turtle.  It would follow her every move.  It was so cute!

 We realized we are  not big aquarium people.  But that's ok.  We still had lots of fun things to do.  Our hotel was right in downtown so we were able to just walk everywhere.
 We enjoyed dinner at a fun diner and then hit the indoor pool at the hotel.  The kids were so excited to get to swim!
 They were both little fish in the water.  Those swimming skills are still going strong!

 The diner where we ate dinner had amazing desserts so we got a piece of M&M cake to go.  The kids loved eating it in bed.
 They then curled up and watched the iPad.  So cute!  It was a long day full of fun!!
