From Jackson we headed to Owensboro to spend some time with my parents. The morning after arriving we headed out for a day at Holiday World. We had to take 2 cars. Isaac and Stephen rode in the jump seats in Dad’s truck. We almost ran into a turkey on the way. One of the boys said maybe he wanted to go to the Thanksgiving section of the park.
Last year Gabriel was too short for the Hallowswings. This year he stood straight and tall and made it in by the brim of his hat. Sebastian liked the rides this year more than last. We didn’t do any big roller coasters (no complaints from me) though we did ride the water coasters. We went through the single rider line since it was faster. Isaac twice ended up with all girls.
Everyone was tired by the end of the day. When I travel to Mom’s without Adam the younger boys take turns getting to sleep with me. Here was my sweet bedfellow for the night.
The next day we took it easier. I got together with my friend Amy that I hadn’t seen in 14 years. We met at the park. Unfortunate the keys got locked in the van, but my dad came to my rescue and worked on retrieving them through the barely cracked window while I sat and visited with my friend. Mom took the the boys shoe shopping and we met Dad for lunch at Ritzy’s. We of course had to go to the library, even though we were only there a few days.
Saturday morning we headed out to Party Ponies for some horseback riding. The boys got to go on the trail for the first time, with a lead rope. They’ve moved up from the tiny ponies to some pretty good sized ones!
Sunday we went to church and had a bit of lunch before heading home. It was a fun trip, full of good memories.
