Is it naughty that I walked around the Walmart in Tennessee yesterday asking people where to find things so that I can hear their accent?

 I was sick and had to cover about 6 hours of driving. The Econo Lodge in Greenville, IL was great last night tho! After some pizza and swimming, I was finally feeling better.

Awesome rest area in Illinois (I think)---had 2 bridges, 1 covered, and a tower to climb for a scenic view.


 APRIL 27, 2015 (again)
My legs KILL today. After the tower yesterday and the Elephant Stone Park hike today, I hope I can still walk in the morning! Hard work makin' memories lol!!

Chattanooga, TN
This morning was a little rough. We tried to head out a bit earlier than usual, but had a big cereal spill at breakfast that hindered that and got everyone into a sour mood. Then we had an unplanned stop to get Olivia a pair of shoes because she insisted that the ones she has been wearing thus far were now uncomfortable and too small. We drove 3.5 hours to the Racoon Mtn Caverns and had a really fun tour, played some mini golf, bought walking sticks in the giftshop, and then stopped for some burgers. I had planned to go another 1.5 hours into Georgia, but everyone has been so crabby and tired all day, I just decided to get a room right by the burger place lol. Day 17 of this trip just needs to be done.

 Just finished up a cave tour at Racoon Mountain Caves in Chattanooga Tennessee. I got to take home some cave mud on my shoes and pants lol! Today has been rough, but it looks like we are still going to be on schedule

Found a nice spot to stop and let the kids burn some energy! After this is lunch time and hopefully the kids will nap while I drive.
