On the way...a little side trip

Sunday, June 17, 2007

As we were driving down to Houston, we started seeing signs for a place called "Rock City." Since Dave is a geologist this seemed like something we ought to go see. It was very interesting. We had a great time and I am sure we will never forget it!

P.S. Yes, I did write "driving to Houston" above. We drove there ---20 hours each way! And um, yes, we are crazy!

  1. Wow! 20 hours each way that is a lot with three young ones. Great thinking to stop and make a side trip. I love the picture of your three children sticking their faces out of the circles on the building. So cute!

  3. Kim,

    That's quite a drive. I know you hate flying--is that why you drove? I have avoided flying for years now. It looks like you had fun. Hope the drive went well. How did Kate do in the car for such a long time?

  10. Did you buy a See Rock City bird house???? "see rock city" signes are EVERYWHERE starting ata bout a 100 mile radius from it! Next time be sure to stop in Chatanooga and see the aquarium and the downtown river area. Arts View Bluff district is a nice place to stay there!

    Did you go through Birmingham? If so then you went right through our area!

    Kudos on driving 20 hours! YIKES

  11. I love your sense of adventure to just take a side road trip! We are always so focused on the destination, that we forget to enjoy the trip....

  12. Wow- 20 hours one way,you are brave! Sounds like you had a great time. We're hoping to take the girls on a road trip before the end of summer. Probably not as far away as yours though :0)

  15. Love Rock City! We visited there when I was a kid and it was a lot of fun. I'm a KY girl and you will have to take the crew to Mammoth Cave someday. It's awesome and I know the boys would love it. Ms. Kate seems like an adventurer so I'm sure she would like it too. Enjoy your trip and keep posting the pics. You are a great picture taker!

  17. I absolutely love the Ritz Cracker story!!! I swore before I had Ainsley I would not have food in my car nor would I EVER talk on my cell phone while driving my child around. I am guilty on both counts! My very favorite day of the week is when my car goes to the car wash and is spotless when it is ready for me!!!
    Miss you!

    P.S: Impressive on the 20 drive. I don't think I could do it...
