Up and Vacation!

Hi Everyone!
This blog introdution is a variety of things we did.
On Thursday Mom, Ian, Jacob, Ellie, Kim, and I all went to see the movie Up in Digital 3-D.
Up has become one of my favorite movies.
It was really good.
We went on vacation to Nashville, TN. and Chattanooga, TN.
The pic above is the Hermitage. (Andrew Jackson's home)
Jacob really wanted to see it! He did a report on Andrew Jackson so he was interrested in seeing his house.
This was in Nashville.

The pic above is the Parthenon.
It was the same height, lenght, weight, structure,and looked exactly the same.
It was an exact replica of the original Parthenon.
This was in Nashville.

This pic is from Rock City.

I thought Rock City was fun to explore.

In the birdhouse you will find the three muskateers.

This was inChattanooga.

Last but not least this pic was at the Chattanooga Aquarium.

Above you may see Ellie and her little friend Penguin.

It was probably my faveorite part.

We also did Ruby Falls and the Incline in Chattanooga.

That was the best vacation yet!

See ya later! : )

  3. Hi Katie! Mommy should be working but here I am looking at your blog...SHHHH!! don't tell my boss :)
    We had a good time on vacation, didn't we? And I love how you remembered all the statistics about the Parthenon, I even forgot that it weighed the same and! That must have been a really big scale to weigh the Parthenon, huh? Cause it was B-I-G! You sure have got a lot of nice people leaving comments, don't you? Keep blogging, can't wait to see what you write tomorrow! Maybe we should take a picture of you in your Alter Girl Alb....I think that would be a good thing to blog about since you love serving at church.
    See you at home this afternoon, and always remember, Mama loves you, pumpkin!

  14. Katie, I love the blog that you have set up. It is just too cute. I love the pictures of your vacation too. I live probably an hour from Chattanooga myself and have been to the aquarium but that was years ago when it first opened. I would love to go and see the other things you got to see. It looked like fun. Take care and congrats - your blog is great!

  15. Hi Katie. Welcome to the world of blogging. I love cats too. We have 3. Their names are Simon (large white cat) Ranger (small gray cat) and Annie (medium size siamese cat). We also have a dog. So we have lots of pets at our house. I am a cross stitcher like your Mom. I enjoy reading her stitching adventures.

    Hope you have a wonderful summer!


  16. Hi Katie,
    Enjoyed your Saturday blog, you are doing a great job and MeMe is so proud of you. Can't wait to see what you are doing tomorrow. We went to the Sommerfest parade today and it was really hot but we had fun. Today was Aunt Missy's birthday so is really getting old.....29! Bradyn was afraid of the clowns in the parade. See you soon 'Sweat Pea'. I think you should get a pic of you serving, I would like to see that. Remember you are MeMe sweet young lady. I Love You! TTFN

  17. Katie, it looks like you had a wonderful time on vacation! I hadn't heard of the movie that you mentioned but can imagine how fun it was to see it in 3D.

    Have a good weekend!

  18. Hi Katie! I read your Mom's blog, so it's nice to know you have one too! Looks like you had a great vacation. Your pictures are very good! Like you, I love cats, so I liked the cat pictures too. I hope you have a great summer and that you keep us updated on all your adventures!!!

  19. Congratulations on your new blog, Katie! It's looking great and yes, the view from your window is wonderful and I can't wait to read more stories about what happens out there.

    Congratulations, also, on such a wonderful school year with all of your awards! Don't think about the fact that school starts again in 8 weeks.. think about all of the fun and learning you can achieve in those 8 weeks. Your vacation to Tennessee was a great kickoff!
