A great day ..................






Once a month the girls in our family get together for lunch. We have cousins, sisters, grand children and we let the guys come too if they want too. This time we went to the "Houseboat".This restaurant is located on the Tennessee River in Chattanooga ,Tn. my hometown.It has a big porch overlooking the river with lots of tables.It was so nice and shady, so we ate out on the porch. I love to eat outside.

There is my mom and granddaughter trying to figure out what to eat.They look really engrossed don't they ! The other pic is a boat that takes you on a little tour of the river. DH and I went on a midnight cruise on that boat one time.We were on the top deck so we could enjoy the night. We kept hearing such good music coming from the speakers and really enjoyed it while we cruised on down the river. So at the end of the cruise just as we were going to dock, we went to the bottom deck. And lo and behold we had missed the THE PARTY ! That's where all the good music was coming from!
We looked at each other and just died laughing! Talk about party poopers !
Some of us in the family are thinking about going on a Thanksgiving dinner cruise on that same boat. Everybody have a blessed day !

Morning, Theresa! Oh, no, dear, I'm a Pink nut!! Oh this dinner boat looks wonderful! I grew up in Fort Payne, Alabama, and had an uncle who lived close to Chattanooga! You look so much like your mother! At first I thought, this is Theresa, but she looks much older than her picture and then I read it was your mother! Isn't that something! I'm sure the food was good ~ looks like it was hard to make decisions on lunch!
Be a sweetie,
Sheali :)

Theresa, you are so right about kids and 'My Space' My grandkids know about blogging only because of mine. Such is life.

I love the boat and the lunch idea. It is so important to have fun with our families. I like the girls day out thing the most. There is major concentration going on at that table. Smile. One day maybe we can get together. I would love that. It is not like we live so far away.

Hugs, Jeanne

You and your mom really look alike; she's pretty too. Granddaughter's a looker too! I wonder...is that boat the General Jackson? If so, Johnny and I dined on it on one of our anniversaries. Loved it!

How blessed you are to have family near you and to be able to do something like this! I would LOVE to do that and especially near the river. What a great time you must have had!

The General Jackson is in Nashville, we did a dinner boat cruise on that last time we were in Naschville. I am posting about Pigeon Forge tomorrow on my blog.

HI Theresa, thanks so much for coming over to my little blog and welcoming me to blogland...Love yours! The music is great and we have so much in common! I used to live in Chattanooga and went on that river cruise to see the leaves turning in the fall..so pretty! I've also been to the riverboat restaurant..Chatt is such a beautiful city! I now live Acworth, NW of Atlanta. Had to laugh about you and the reading glasses! I am sooo guilty of the same thing! I must have 20 or so...Dollartree! gotta love them, but at times can't find a single pair. Well, nice to "meet cha"..
Be good! Santa

Hi Theresa,
what a lovely idea - once a month the girls get together for lunch. I must think about this. Maybe in my family I should do this with my girls.
I can imagine what a wonderful time it was in the Houseboat.

Have a blessing Sunday!
