Family Vacation in Tennessee

I’m back! It’s been a while since I checked in. Oops. We were on vacation in Chattanooga, Tennessee over spring break and had a fabulous time. Here’s a glimpse into our week.

We spent a day at Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park. We learned a lot of Civil War history and Clara completed the Junior Ranger program at both parks. I highly recommend this program. It is available at all National Parks (for FREE) and gives kids a fun and educational experience.


On our second day we visited the Tennessee Aquarium.

Giant crabs!

I loved the extensive exhibit of jelly fish and sea nettles. They are such fascinating creatures.

A family portrait.

We took a two hour cruise on the Tennesse River. It was Clara and Nicholas’s first time on a boat.

Here we are exploring the Cumberlad Caverns (with a tour guide, of course!).  

In The Hall of the Mountain King. I could totally hear the music in my head. It also reminded us of the book The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald.

No vacation would be complete without locating and visiting the local used bookstore. Chattanooga did not disappoint. They had a huge McKay store. We were able to find many books on our booklist to add to our library. If you’re looking for a great list of kids books, check out Honey for a Child’s Heart by Gladys Hunt.

Now it’s back to “real life”. Just a few more weeks before the summer fun begins!
