Vacay! Yay! Day 1

Travel day today. Our trip today is from northern Indiana to Corbin, Kentucky where we will stay the night. The drive has been uneventful, as most of Indiana is flat and cornfields. We have made a tradition of stopping for lunch at a really nice rest stop where we enjoy a picnic of my Mother in Law’s homemade chicken salad! It’s full of yummy chicken, red grapes and pecans. But our rest stop was closed. I mean torn down type of closed. We were able to find a community park in Saint Leon, Indiana. A town found way down yonder, Indiana almost into Ohio.

Next, we crossed over the Ohio River. This is the big event for the day until we reach the mountains as far as sight seeing goes.

Miami Fort Power station

At this point in our drive we go from Indiana into Ohio and end up in Kentucky.A couple hours after that, our a/c pump went out in our car! Luckily I have a smart mechanic of husband who didn’t panic and knew right away what the problem was. So basically we don’t have air. But we have an engine that can go and wheels to take us.

This will be a fix for when we return home. So the little ones rode with their grandma while my husband and I rode with the wind in our hair. It was nastalglic in a way, as it reminded me of being a kid in the backseat of some really cool cars…wind blowing. We even got to a town that had already had rain. That was nice in the sense that God got the rain out of our way. I was reminded that troubles do come, but God leads the way and clears our paths now and then….if we let him.Tonight we sleep sound in a hotel in Kentucky. Tomorrow…waterpark and we travel to our rental on the lake. Vanessa and’s my one photography attempt, hope you like it. My daughter picked it for me.

  3. So Amy I was admiring that picture as I was reading your post—then I saw that you had mentioned my name. Sorry I’m only reading this post, I was away camping for a few days. Keep practicing —-you know what they say: practice makes perfect. It’s what I’m also hoping for. Enjoy your vacay and stay safe.
