Yes, I know that I am terrible at posting regularly. Yes, I know that is the whole point of a blog. Yes, I will try to do better. Moving on...
At the beginning of this month, we took a trip to Huntsville, AL to visit some of Craig's old college friends. While there, we decided to take (yet another) road trip to Rock City in Chattanooga, TN. Admittedly, I was a little nervous to take a 1 1/2 year old up the side of a mountain. You see, heights and I are not the best of friends. I get that weak-in-the-knees feeling just thinking about Canon looking over the edge. I envision the worst. I panic. It isn't a pretty sight. However, I decided to suck it up and deal with it for the sake of a nice day. And some pictures. (That was Craig's argument to get me there. Pictures. The man is good.)
It took a few hours to go through the entire city of rock and was completely beautiful. The paths and alleys were so perfectly formed that it reminded me just how talented of an artist our Creator really is. The changing leaves were the perfect backdrop too. Gorgeous reds, golds, greens, and oranges flooded the entire area for miles.
As for Canon, he had SO MUCH FUN seeing everything, touching everything, climbing everything. I was relieved to find that the edges were pretty well guarded so it wouldn't have been easy for him to fall - if I happened to allow Craig let go of him for a second and a half. Seriously though, this kid would live outside 100% of the time if we would let him. This place was heaven to him.
Let's just say I am glad we went.
