Only 5 weeks left on the roadtrip. Hard to believe we've begun our journey back west. We've reached our furthest eastern point, Lexington.
This morning at our Lexington Horse Park campground, we had a great game of tennis baseball after we did school. I'd throw tennis balls and Jack, Sam and Lil would hit them back with raquets and Jack's Louisville Slugger. They took turns smackin' it. We were basically the only ones (certainly the only kids) left at camp, so we had this huge grassy area to ourselves.
We headed towards Mammoth Caves and made stops at Lincoln's boyhood home and museum in Hogenville. For six bucks we all got into the museum. Best price yet. After Lincoln land, we continued south towards Mammoth Cave, which we missed--whoops, so much for that. We are now camped at Bowling Green KOA, an hour north of Nashville, our destination for tomorrow.
Kids love it-there's a pirate ship park, a gross, stagnant pond that Jack thinks is really cool, and the usual KOA attractions, mini golf, fun bikes, and paddle boats. We'll be lucky to make it out of here by noon. The KOAs really are the best way to go. The bathrooms are always clean!
No pictures, blog won't post them. Internet is VERY slow here.
Today we played at the (Lexington) park and played "ben-ten" (that is baseball and tennis). There has to be more than one person. So one person has a glove, and one person has a tennis racquet. So the person with the glove throws the ball, and the person racquets hits the ball.
