The journey to South Carolina was anything but direct. First was a stop at Erik's parents who are located in the Knoxville area of Tennessee. After a night's stay we made our way down to Chattanooga for a day of sight seeing. We rode the incline, the world's steepest inclined railway, up to Lookout Mountain and toured the old battle ground site. After that we went to Rock City--a treasure in itself. We had such a good day just spending time as a family. It's honestly not something we get to do very often. Ella had the best time of anyone, taking in every bit of historical data she could get.
Lucy walked like a champion this day. I was so proud of the way she pushed through being tired and really tried her best to keep up with everyone. There were a few times when she got tired, though. This is a side of Lucy I don't see that often.
Jack was in hog heaven with miles and miles of trails to run on and the freedom to roam about fairly at will. I'm pretty sure it was a day the kiddos won't forget for a while. It just goes to show you that there are fun memories to be had in the simplest of excursions.
