More from the state park

I think the kids could’ve stayed here playing the whole afternoon if we hadn’t gotten hungry.  I am thankful I found a log to sit on while they were keeping themselves busy. The turtles were as glad to see the warm weather as we were, I think.

Hiking at Kings Mountain State Park

Yesterday June, Mason, & I got out of our houses for a little bit. This is the view sitting on the bench at the end of the Lake Crawford Trail. So pretty, and it was absolutely a gorgeous day to be outside. It was too cold for them to actually get in the water, but […]

Final pix from the Museum

About the last thing in the big museum to see was a cage, where you could stand like you were the umpire, and a pitcher threw at 90 mph fast ball right at the catcher in front of you. That was one fast ball, I’m telling you. Our final stop was at the batting cage, […]

More from the Louisville Slugger Museum

Today Jeff & I headed over to Louisville this morning to visit the Louisville Slugger Museum. What a fun, fun way for a couple of lifelong baseball fans to spend the day. We started off with the factory tour. No pictures were allowed while we were in the factory, but there were these giant signs […]

Charlestown High Gym

We spent the day yesterday with Jeff’s mom & dad – drove around to see all the new additions to the town in the past year, ate lunch at the traditional Copper Kettle (their favorite restaurant there in town), and then hung out for the afternoon until time to watch the Indiana basketball game. During […]

On the way to Indiana

Tuesday morning we left early to drive to Indiana – 7:13 to be exact, so just a little off our goal departure time of 7 AM :-). We actually like to stop on our way & spend the night, but that just didn’t work in our schedule this time, but we did have a nice […]
