Last day in TN

Day 5…Chattanooga

ruby falls

Bright & early the next day (and by bright & early I mean about 10), we piled in the car & drove a couple hours south to Chattanooga. Amanda had found a cave with a waterfall inside (Ruby Falls) and Lookout Mountain that she wanted to visit.

Kalia enjoyed the waterfall, but not so much the cave tour. It was cramped and the terrain was hard to navigate, especially someone with trouble walking & keeping balance.

Ruby Falls was BEAUTIFUL!


And when we finished touring we climbed up the mountain a bit to get a view of Chattanooga. We had a late lunch of Popeye’s Chicken (we don’t have that around here…it was REALLY good), then drove back to Nashville.

We did a little shopping at some consignment shops, then crashed back at the hotel. Everyone was pooped from the long night before and the early/long day today.


It was time to head home. We left the hotel around 8:30, stopped off for breakfast at IHOP (yum!), then high-tailed it back home. We were ready for our own beds & familiar things (Kalia made it in the house approx. 3 minutes before she had her books & puzzles drug out). Chinese take-out for dinner, a movie and thus ended our family vacation 2011.
