Sunrise in Monument Valley

Thursday, July 10, 2014


It's no secret that Emma loves water, so we got her a little pool for the back yard and a little flower fountain to play in. As you can see she had a great time.

The cutest view of all. Wearing nothing but a baseball hat.

In the afternoon we went over to Coolidge Park on the North Shore of downtown Chattanooga. They have a 100 year old carousel enclosed in a building. At first Emma didn't know what to think. After the first ride she was hooked and wanted more. 

This carousel was pretty fast moving and it was hard for Emma to see us standing along side. By the time she saw us we were gone. I did take a video, but it was too large for this blog, so it is posted on YouTube  under Tails from Tennessee at 

Then we went over to the splash pad fountain which was next to the carousel. Again, at first Emma was a little unsure of what to do, but quickly figured out it was OK to play in the water fountain. I'm not sure who had more fun---Emma, Ryan, Najla, or us.

There is another YouTube video of fun at the splash pad here.

Back home for dinner--- meatloaf, mashed potatoes, purple hulled peas.And for desert, fresh blueberry pie with ice cream, a first for Emma. I think she enjoyed it.


  1. That looks like a great park. I know it was fun. It's good Emma like to try different things. She is a water girl, though!

  2. She likes to water for sure. I guess it helps when you live in Florida.
