End of Summer Fun

Earlier in the summer, my aunt and I purchased a Groupon deal for the Chattanooga Ducks.  (Basically, it's a tour of the downtown area in a WWII amphibious landing vehicle--a truck that also functions as a boat.)  We decided to hold the tickets until closer to fall and make a day of it in Chattanooga.

Last weekend, the highs were only in the upper 80s, so we decided to head up on Saturday.  It was a fun day in downtown Chattanooga, and I pulled out my camera for the first time in what feels like months and got some fun late-summer pictures of my favorite girls.

After the Duck tour and a delicious lunch downtown, we rode the free shuttle to a different part of downtown--marking Addison & Mackenzie's first public transportation ride, I believe.  (They were thrilled to be riding on a "bus".)  We intended to visit the antique carousel at Coolidge Park, but it was closed for repairs.  The girls happily settled for splashing in the fountains at the park.

When A & M got their fill of splashing, we performed a quick change into some dry clothes and headed back toward our car.  There were a couple of other places I would have liked to visit, but the youngest members of our crew were fading quickly.

Sure enough, almost before we even made it out of the parking garage, this was the scene in the backseat:

I declare it a successful adventure.
