After lunch we went to the Creative Discovery Museum. The kids could have stayed here all day! Not Mike or me. It was fun watching them play, for the first hour or so. Then we started getting ready to go! But they were not! I think we stayed there for 2 1/2 or 3 hours!
We ended up leaving Chattanooga around 5:00. This was not a good thing! It was also storming when we left. There were warning all the way to Rome so we opted to go over towards Alabama and go down. We were only in about 5 or 10 mins of rain and no traffic once we got off the interstate. It was just a nice ride home.
We stopped in Fort Pane to eat supper. At McDonald's of coarse! There was an in door play ground and the monkeys had a ball. They were not ready to go home when we got ready to leave. I think we were there for about an hour.
We were about 15 minutes from home when Abbie decided that she needed to pee. We were in Borden Springs. NO bathrooms any where. So we stopped on the side of the road and got her out. She looked at me and asked if she had to pee in the grass. It was funny! But Abbie has now pee'd on the side of the road in the middle of no where! (in the grass!)
Alan had come and got the sick van to work on while we were gone. He brought it back after we got home. It was still sick. Wednesday I carried it to the parts store and got them to put it on their computer to see if it would tell us what the problem was. Yep, a $60 part. We had already spent around $400 to get to this $60 part. Well It really needed $200 wort of the work done. But the other $200 was just waisted. Oh well. It is fixed now! It is so much easier to load everyone into the van than it is the car. The monkeys are way to close in the car!
Any way here are some pictures from our trip.
