Mini-vacation...

We left on Saturday morning to head to Chattanooga, TN.  It's only about an hour and a half from here, so we didn't have too far to drive (I still somehow managed to sleep on the way there!)  When we got there we unpacked and then headed downtown.  We walked ALL around downtown!  We started in the Bluff View Art District.  It was a really pretty area!  There were art sculptures all around!  Here is Garet with a battleship...
Does it seem like a funny picture?  Here is the uncropped version... 
=)  How funny!  It actually took us a minute to figure out what the heck it was!  I love looking at the art though!  We came across a bridge that you could see through!  It made me a little nervous!
I made sure to stay in the middle!

It was so hot!  But at least we had a beautiful day!  Throughout downtown there were random art sculptures.  I just fell in love with this dog!
That night we went out to dinner at a place called Sugars Ribs.  It is a BBQ place, and it was wonderful!  It was recommended to us by a friend.  There are a few goats outside that you can feed when you are finished eating! 

Sunday we went to Rock City and Ruby Falls.  Rock City was really neat.  There was a nice trial that took you to the waterfall.  We got there early so we beat the big crowd!
There were a lot of tight squeezes though!  And I am seriously poking out now... I feel like it anyway!  So when we came to "Needle Eye" I got a little worried!  =)
There was a split in the trail and we could either cross by stone bridge, or by swinging bridge.  I went to the stone bridge and took Garet's picture on the swinging one... and then I went over and crossed on the swinging bridge too.  It was scary but at least the view was pretty!
When we were about half-way finished Garet found the most AMAZING thing!  (if you can't read it, it says $2.25!!)
When we left, we decided just to drive around the top of the mountain.  There was a neat neighborhood, and all the street names were named after fairy tales!  (There was a Cinderella Lane and a Peter Pan Road...)  It was really cute.  Garet found a little path on the side of the road that lead to an awesome overlook!
It was raining off and on all afternoon and evening.  That night we went back downtown for dinner and dessert.   It's always so hard to come back and go back to work!  We had such a great time!
