Spring Break in the Tennessee Valley

The Boy Scout decided to visit our friends in Chattanooga for Spring Break this year, so we made the trek down to our ole stompin' grounds. This is a pic of his buddy Kate, who he spends the most time with. She's always been his best friend, since they were little. (We had her up here last summer and went to King's Island.)
We had moved here when the Pickle was just 8 months old, so he never got to experience the tourist traps in Chattanooga. Here are some pictures of my favorite tourist trap, Coolidge Park. It's situated on the Tennessee River, has a carousel, big area for picnics and walking, and a huge fountain for the kids. As you can see, Pickle had an awesome time.

Unfortunately, he didn't want to get out. Which led to many,many tears.
This is the first time he's been able to get in the water without a swimming diaper, so maybe that hurdle is over. We can only hope and pray.

Always clowning for the camera, Pickle appears to be blowing Mommy kisses. Other than almost turning blue, he had a great time. I wish we had one of these fountains up here.
