Happy Birthday!! What a beautiful day--other than the ticket-darn! YOU have a darling family--what a fun day to be together all day with people you love!

I am so happy to have found a person blogging from Chattanooga. I am going to have to try the restraunts you talked about. They sound so good! My sister is coming to visit next month. Do you have any suggestions for me of what to do or where to go? She has two small children but is up for some sight seeing. I would love to get any ideas. Thanks sooo much!!
