A Quick Trip to Kentucky

Our quick trip to Kentucky was lovely although the drive was a bit warm with a broken a/c in the van. I take back anything I've said recently about enjoying a car ride when the windows are open. The drive away from the heavy humidity of the Ohio Valley was much easier on Sunday than the drive into it was on Friday.




The highlight of the trip (other than being with my mom and dad) was the fact that my sister who currently lives in Texas was in Kentucky. What a treat for everyone!



We got to watch the boys play football. The Ohio River looks deceptively pretty in this picture:





We ate at my favorite hometown, greasy pizza place:







Checkered bought a shirt for me from Giovanni's. I suspect that it looks better on the young girls who work there.We got to see some of the remodeling being done at the church where my dad is the pastor:





We enjoyed watching our youngest nephew ride a scooter:




And then his brave mom riding the same scooter:


When my older sister stopped by, I announced that I would like to have a quick family picture -- my parents with their daughters -- but that's a different post for a different day.






Now I'm off to spend the week at Cub Scout day camp.


Oh, lucky, lucky me.

I snickered at the quick trip to Kentucky part.
From where I sit, there isn't a quick trip anywhere! I would love to do that.

Cub Scout Day Camp should provide awesome blogger fodder!

So glad you had a great weekend, even if it was just a short visit. Love the t-shirt and I know that really made you smile! What a good Checkered he was.

Cub Scout Day Camp - I remember volunteering there. I used to take a weeks vacation to do that. I have been so tired in my entire life! The dirt, the never-ending dirt that got everywhere. It turned my white socks dark brown! You know what - I would do it again in a heartbeat if I had a child that age! Keep up the good work!

Glad to know you got home again safely, despite the warm driving. Looks like a great time! So nice that you could spend time with your sisters and parents, and the youngster cousins could have fun together. Your parents must live right near the river, or else you were at a park. Great memories there in your photos.

It looks like you had a great, short trip and sometimes those are the best kind! I didn't know your dad is a pastor--that makes you a PK. No wonder you are such a neat person :-)
