Chattanooga Vacation: Day 1; Sluggo's, Discovery and Hiking

Since Ashley completed her state exam and Kaleigh is about to graduate kindergarden, I wanted to treat them to a special out of town overnight.  We decided to go to Chattanooga since there were some extreamly fun and unique things for us to do.

We got up early and headed out, it is only about a 2 hour drive.  We had lunch at Sluggo's.  We had kept hearing great things about this little vegan restaurant but has not been able to go.  We made sure we got lunch there and it was excellent.  Ashley had a philly cheezesteak, I had a BBQ seitan sandwich, and Kaleigh had nachos.  We started off with some buffalo cheeky wings.  All the food was amazing.  Kaleigh destroyed almost the entire plate of nachos by herself!

After lunch the three of us went to the Children's Discovery Museum.  It had a lot of fun things for Kaliegh and she was going 100 miles per hour while we were there.  It was great!  One of the first rooms we went to was a doctor's office which seemed appropriate since Ashley just graduated as a radiology technician.  The two of them played with the x-rays before we went through the rest of the building.

After the Museum, we checked into our hotel, unpacked our things and headed for a local hike near lookout mountain.  Once we got a little ways into the woods, the trail was flooded out so we turned back.  At some point on the hike, without knowing it, I got a tick on my leg.  It was several hours before I noticed it.

After our hike, we headed to Ghegis Grill for a mongolian stir fry dinner.  We all had a lot of fun making out bowl of veggies.  It was a wonderful day but it came to a close early because we all needed our sleep for the following days adventure!

Love the pictures of Kayleigh. Good to know that you can get vegan stuff at the Ghenghis Grill. In case I'm ever wanting anything other than Sluggo's, that is...

next time try the Berliner sandwich! I'm not much one for reubens, but the Berliner rules!
