We took a family vacation to Chattanooga last weekend. This was our first vacation with both boys, and I was a little concerned. They actually did really well. As soon as we checked in the hotel, we went swimming. We made sure to pick a hotel with an indoor pool.
This was Joey's first time to swim. He seemed to like it pretty well.
The boys were cold when we got back to the room, so all three of them took a bath.
That night, we went to dinner at Sugar's...voted best BBQ in Chattanooga for the past 3 years. It was very good, and Andrew ate soooo much.
Andrew liked watching the horses. He would yell, "neigh neigh" as they passed.
The next morning, we went to the aquarium.
He even walked up this ramp with some help from Dada. After coming off of the ramps, he had some difficulty walking. It seemed as if his balance was off, and he had sea legs. We assumed that it would get better in a few minutes.
We entered the aquarium and started looking at all of the animals, but Joey and I were not having much fun because Andrew's walking was not improving.
Taking a break:
While the boys looked at the penguins, I was calling the pediatrician. He was still only able to take a few steps without falling.
The next morning, we ate breakfast at a local place called Aretha Frankenstein. We do not like to eat at chains on vacations. It is fun to try new places that we would never get to visit.
After breakfast, we went to the Children's Discovery Museum. Andrew had so much fun at the water exhibit. I did not see the smocks (notice the little girl next to me) so Andrew got soaked.
Andrew was so excited that there was a library in the museum.

Hula-hooping with Dada:
Taking all of the checkers to make a stack:
Finally, it was time for some yogurt. Andrew calls it "yo yo." His favorite yogurt is cookies n cream.
You can't tell by this picture, but Andrew danced for several minutes on this sign. He had so much fun.
