Back from Spring Break

We had a wonderful visit with both grandparents. Our first stop was Chattanooga. We wisited with both my sister's and brother's families as well as my parents. We played with cousins, went to the Tennessee Aquarium and went to the Creative Discovery Museum. I will have to take Gabriel back to the Museum because he wanted to climb more but everyone else wanted to move on the the rest of the museum. Matt will have to go with me and climb with Gabe or explore with Abby while I climb. On Wednesday we went to the creek below my parent's house. Where we throw rocks and sticks into the water. Abby fell into the icy cold water and had to be rescued. I was impressed that she flipped over onto her back and kicked her feet as fast as she could. I guess all the work we did with her last summer really paid off. Matt took the accident in stride which I was very glad about, if you know Matt well enough you know he usually freaks. We then left Chattanooga for Knoxville. We picked up Amy who spent the night with us at NiNi and Grandaddy's house. The next day we all went to that wonderful children's pizza place, not, Chuck E Cheese. The kids had a great time and Sarah took Gabriel under her wing and played games with him. He is still talking about that. Amy spent the night again and then we went home the next day. And the trip home was the worst trip I have ever taken but we made it home which is all that mattered.

What was wrong with the drive home?

long story...Left clothes in closet had to turn back, Gabe left MO at house cried when I said we couldn't go back for him, we were too far away at that point, Gabe got hungry so we waited in line at McDonald's for 20 min., Construction took another 30-45 min., then there was a wreck with environmental cleanup another 30-45 min to get through that. Then we had the assorted stops for potty breaks and diaper changes. What normally takes 5-5 1/2 hours took us 7.

Mo has two identical brothers who decided to skip the trip and keep Daddy company.
