Lake Winnie

Or "Lake Winnepesaukah" as it is formally known. Saturday we headed to a theme park in Chattanooga for Abby to have a day of fun.

Abby and Nana on the train...Abby would say "Choo Choo" every time the train honked.

Abby at the splash pad. She wasn't too crazy about the water coming up, but she did like to fill her cup with water.

Riding in the pink bug!

Yellow Ladybug

But her absolute favorite were the boats.

They had a string that you could pull to ring the bells.

And a steering wheel.

Abby was loving it (when it was sitting still).

As soon as the ride started, Abby would go into "freeze" mode. She would not touch a thing. Just stare around and try not to move. Mom and I cracked up and just yelled at her to turn the steering wheel or pull the string. She was not having any of it.

That night we went to Wasabi for my bro's 25th birthday. She looks like she is having a blast!
Stu took these pictures on Friday.

Ms. Potato Head's eyes in her mouth.

And the fear in Ali's eyes. Maybe she is thinking that she is next!
Abby has also mastered the art of "waving". She waves to anyone that will catch her eye. Then yells "Hi" at the top of her lungs. It was cute the first 100 times. Now, she does it to everyone. Still pretty funny though.
On that note, if you see an adorable 1 1/2 year old wave at you, wave back. Don't ignore her. It is just rude.
If you want a sneak peek of our photos of here. The first and fourth are in my top 5. I will share the rest soon.

I wanted to cry watching her ride all those big girl rides by herself! I miss you guys so much and our weekend fun days with Abby! It's just not the same without you!

I cant believe she stayed in the rides by herself. Colt would have crawled into the water for sure!!!

When we went to a theme park, we could only ride rides that we could ride with him, hah.

How tall do you have to be to ride the rides there?
