On my hook

In my World of Crochet.

Labor Day Family Get away!!

Woo Hoo we figured out where to go for the 3 days off Keith had over Labor day.

We ended up at one of our favorite cities to visit. Chattanooga, TN. We hadn’t been to the Tennessee Aquarium since they added the ocean side and redid the waterfront, so we thought we’d take a trip down and see it.

The Aquarium was great as always! We went in the ocean side first in case Kaila got worn out in the main one since we’d been through it a couple times before but hadn’t seen the ocean side. (A good call by the way)

My favorite of course were the penguins which were one of the first exibits in the ocean building. They seemed to be awfull taken with Kaila.

 This penguin just sat there and stared nose to nose with her for a long time. Of course before I thought to get a picture Kaila had started to lose interest and I almost missed the photo.

The Fish this year seemed to be real interested in Kaila. They used to all run away from her, this time alot of them stared at her face to face.

These are some Pahrana’s that just sat there staring at Kaila till she left. It was so weird and funny. They looked like they wanted to see how she tasted. My flash didn’t let me get a good picture. I’ll try to brighten it and replace it later.

 Some of the neat exibits in the Aquarium. These are my next favorites. I could just sit in the Penguin, Sea Horse or Jelly Fish rooms and watch them for hours.

Sea horse.


That’s quite a fancy fellow right there. 🙂

And the Jelly Fish.

I just love the way they have them glow. So gracefull and beautifull.

Just some really big fish swimming in the tank.

As you can maybe tell from the picture Kaila is winding down and we are only about halfway through the main Aquarium by now, but that’s kind of what I figured would happen.

After the Aquarium we took a little boat tour and then rode the electric trolley back up to the Chattanooga Choo Choo where we had parked this time so we could ride the trolley. It’s free to ride but we always run out of time to ride it on other trips.

On our way home we decided to try to find something to do on the way home so we ended up stopping in Lynchburg, TN to tour the Jack Daniels distillery. It’s a free tour and such a neat place.

Kaila took this picture of Keith and I hahaha It looks like she had a little too much already and this is before we went on the tour. 🙂

 And this is Kaila with Jack’s statue in front of the cave that they still get the water for the whiskey from to this day.

 

On the crochet front I took 3 projects on the trip with me but only worked on 1 of them. I did get alot done on my 8 pocket tote.
