Blasts from the Past

We "relived" a few things from our past this weekend that are worth a mention:

April 7. 2012 - We were in Chattanooga for the weekend to celebrate Ashlee's Mom's birthday and for the Easter holiday.  The weather was perfect on Saturday morning, so we took an hour's drive north to just outside Spring City, TN, to the Stinging Fork Falls State Natural Area' and hiked the mile-long trail down into the narrow canyon that holds this beautiful cataract.  Ashlee had never been here before, and I hadn't since way back around 1990.  Thanks to Ashlee for snapping this picture with her IPhone since my camera battery was dead.  Thanks to our nephew, Matt, and his (and our) friend, Jeff, who was visiting from Florida for tagging along with us.

That same night we flashed back to 1997 and caught the new 3D re-release version of Titanic along with our friends, Mike, Elizabeth, Lavonda and Tim.  The new 3-D effects weren't all that much, but seeing this epic on the big screen again reminded us of just what a good film it is, and what a ground-breaking triumph it was in filmmaking.  We had a great dinner of delicious fried chicken beforehand at Champy's downtown on MLK Street.
