Visiting Tennessee

We went to Tennessee this weekend to visit our good friends, Tara and Brett, and their two gorgeous kids, Miles and Macey. The last time we were there, Miles was almost 3 and Macey had just been born. Maddox had a blast with Miles. It was the first time we have seen him so actively playing with a little kid like this. He was chasing him, tickling him, and playing follow the leader. They had a total blast! We went to Nashville and M got to see sting rays that acted like dogs... no seriously! They begged for food just like dogs do! He also rode a carousel and ate a TON of candy! After Tennessee we drove to Cincinatti and stayed in a hotel. Then, today, we went to the Newport Aquarium. M seemed to really like it, for the most part. He mainly wanted to see Nemo and Dory. :-) He really liked the alligators, who were surprisingly active. I think his favorite was the shark tank. I think the only thing he didn't like what not having any control over the animals. He wanted the shark and ray to play, but they wouldn't and he was fairly disapointed. For anyone that is into aquariums, none hold up to the Atlanta one, so we will definitely take M there when he is a bit older. We were very proud of Maddox on this trip. He was in the car for about a total of 13 hours in 3 days and did wonderfully! And he was really well behaved at Tara's. I think we will be going on road trips more often now that he is older and seems to enjoy it!
