Tiny Ted's Summer Vacation in Alabama

Tiny Ted is happy and well in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, with the Chamberlain Family. Because it is summer in America all of the schools are on holidays (vacation). April Chamberlain and her family have taken Tiny Ted on holiday with her family. Here is Noah and Luke with Tiny Ted.

Noah and Luke are taking good care of Tiny Ted and showing him the town and state. Tiny Ted even spent all night at the Birmingham Zoo with Noah for the Harry Potter Zoo Snooze.Here are Noah and Tiny Ted getting ready for the Harry Potter read!
WOW. I hope there is strong glass between Tiny Ted and the white tiger! The white tiger came extremely close to see Tiny Ted up close.

They made troll boggers, petted animals, took a night-time tour of the zoo, a midnight train ride, and fell asleep to Noah's mom reading from the new Harry Potter book. It was great fun!

Luke was able to visit the zoo during the day with Noah and Tiny Ted.

The Butterfly Encounter was everyone's favorite part of the day.

The Chamberlain Family spent the last weekend before school starts in Mobile, Alabama visiting the USS Alabama. The USS Alabama is a huge navy ship. Look at all those guns!!!!! AK
We can recognise that flag! AK
Tiny Ted got to go in all the cool places. This is the control seat for an anti-aircraft gun. AKTiny Ted needed to get in close to look through the gun site.Tiny Ted sat on this mine. A mine is like an underwater bomb- like those ones in Finding Nemo when Nemo and Dorrie met the sharks. AK
They took a ferry ride.
And explored Fort Gaines and played on the beach.

These are some huge oil rigs they saw off the coast.Tiny Ted will begin 3rd grade with Noah on Thursday at Paine Intermediate School in Trussville. His teacher, Mrs. Childs cannot wait for her new students to come. Pictures from the first day of school will be posted on Mrs. Childs' website for everyone to see and learn more about this special students. More to come soon!
It was great to see Tiny Ted again. Thanks Mrs Chamberlain for sharing him with us.
We will try to keep up with Tiny Ted's time in his new class :) Mr H
