We spent last week in KY with my in-laws. As always the week went far too quickly, but we had a great time while there. Most of Monday was spent in the car and the boys did AMAZING! We drove straight through to Indy where we had lunch and then from Indy to their house only stopping about 20 minutes from their house to get some gas. We got there, unloaded and got some supper and then Connie (mother-in-law) and I headed out to her monthly knitting group. She is teaching some ladies from work how to knit. I took jewelry supplies along and made a few things while there. Actually, two of the ladies purchased earrings from me. Yay!

Tuesday and Wednesday were spent around the house since Connie had to work both days. One evening we went into Walmart to get some things and then had supper at a local BBQ place. We “did” school while there as well. Here are Daniel and Isaiah with the chalkboard boxes that Grandpa made for them before we left. They enjoyed them in the car as well and I didn’t find quite as many writing/coloring utensils sprawled all over the seats and floor.

On Thursday Dave and I celebrated our 10th anniversary by spending the night at a hotel in Bowling Green. It was so wonderful to have a night away together. It has been a long time since we’ve done that. We didn’t do anything spectacular, but we enjoyed spending the time together. There were a few tourist-y type things we considered, but we knew most of them were things we would enjoy doing when the boys could be with us. We stayed at a Holiday Inn and it was beautiful. The rooms were all built around a gorgeous indoor courtyard that was open all the way to the top (7 floors or so). Here is the view from our balcony.

We got home late Friday afternoon and Connie asked if we would be interested in going to the Nashville Zoo on Saturday. I thought that sounded like a wonderful idea. So, we planned to leave in the morning and enjoy a day at the zoo. You’ll have to check back tomorrow to read more about our day…
