I was not looking forward to the long drive to Alabama with five children. I was looking forward even less to spending the night in a hotel room. The trip was necessary to take care of house business and since we were going so far, we figured we might as well stay to visit for a while. Unfortunately our absence was long enough that Adam couldn’t go along. After talking to my dad on the phone one night, I looked at the directions and was pleased to discover the trip was really no longer if I went through Owensboro, KY where my parents live. So we left a couple of days early, and stopped over at Mom and Dad’s to rest before making the remaining journey. It was the most relaxing visit we’ve gotten to have in a long time. Here are some highlights:
Eating Cherry Pie (I didn’t get a picture of this, as I was too busy eating my own.)
Shoe Shopping Icecream Cones
The stop over was such a success, we stopped again (just for a night) on the way home.
