This is the first in a series of posts about our vacation to Florida. We had a fun, if exhausting, 11 day trip. Highlights (other than the thrillling 40 hours of driving) included a trip to the Creative Discovery Museum in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a stay at Grandma’s, a trip to the beach, three days at Disney World, a day in Savannah, and a drive along the Blue Ridge parkway.
Louisville at night, handheld camera at 70 mph. Pretty bad, but I thought it was interesting.
Tennessee at 70 mph. It was interesting to watch the seasons change as we drove farther south.
All tuckered out from a late night and big breakfast.
Daddy wasn't the only one who had work to get done on the drive down.
You know you're in Tennessee when...

Driving into Chattanooga, TN. There are actually supposed to be two lanes here. For bicycles, maybe?
The Creative Discovery Museum in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Full of fun stuff for kids to do.

Here, Ian -- you stick YOUR hand in that hole in the rock...
Doctor Livingstone, I presume?
Mommy, can he come home with us?

And finally, the sight that greeted us as we drove into Lakeland, Florida. Vultures eating a dead armidillo. Yummy.
