We took a day trip to Chattanooga last weekend...or as Henry called it, "Nooga." There are tons of touristy things to do in downtown Chattanooga, but we'd be lying if we didn't admit that one of the real reasons we went was to eat at the best breakfast place on earth, Aretha Frankensteins. The inch-thick pancakes alone are worth the hour and a half drive.

How could we visit Chattanooga without visiting its famous Choo-Choo? Even though there's not much do to but look at the train cars and climb on one of them, we did not budget enough time at this place. We spent about half an hour there but if Henry had gotten his way, we would still be there. Staring and pointing.

We also took Henry to his first movie! It was a 3D Imax movie about dolphins and whales. At first he was a little nervous when the 40-foot humpback whale came out at him, but then he settled down and watched intently for about 35 minutes. Unfortunately, that movie lasts 45 we left a little early.
He's still talking about going to the movie but he swears he saw penguins, even though Alexis and I were both there and can pretty much say with certainty that there were no penguins.

Okay, funny story even though it comes sans picture. Last night at dinner, Henry asked for more cheese. I think he meant to say, "more cheese, Daddy." But what came out--very clearly--was "more cheese, dawg." We laughed for a good while about that one.
I lied, that story does come with a picture.
