Family Vacation Trip - Day 6

Wednesday, July 2, 2008


The Caterpillars woke up early and planted themselves on the couch (just like the previous mornings). I realized I hadn't gotten a photo - and that seemed such a shame, since Minnie Mouse did a wonderful job of helping them pick out DVDs at the library to watch every day.

Today was the long trip home. It was a great idea to split the trip into two days, but Hubby and I figured that on the way back - we'd be able to do one long day. We actually dropped the Caterpillars off in Kentucky, so they could visit their dad for a couple of weeks. So the first two hours would be with the Caterpillars, but the last eight should be just us.

Ug, that was a rough idea. I was carsick twice, and just couldn't find anything that seemed appetizing to eat.

Until we stopped at a store to walk around for a bit, and I smelled peaches. Then I wanted a cup of peach ice cream.

That is not quite as easy to find, when you not at my hometown (where everybody and their brother sells peach ice cream). I fell asleep in the car, and Hubby surprised me by stopping at the Mayfield Dairy Ice Cream Plant. They weren't giving tours today, but they did have ice cream for sale! My peach ice cream made my tummy hurt (I'm allergic to milk) - but it sure tasted good!

We finished the trip, and I wanted to be at home so badly that we ended up stopping at our local grocery store for cans of soup and sandwiches for dinner. I made it inside to eat supper and snuggle with my baby girl Caterpillar, while Hubby unpacked the car.

Taking a warm bath helped, and now I'm off to bed (after catching So You Think You Can Dance - who caught the Eli Jerseys). I have work early tomorrow morning.

I'm so glad that we were able to take this vacation as a family. I love spending time with Hubby and the Caterpillars, and this was my first time to get to travel up to my daddy's house. Hope ya'll enjoyed the pictures!

Thanks for sharing your vacation! Didn't you love geocaching? I've only done it once and have always wanted to plan some geocaching around my next vacation route!

Hopefully, with no more really long car trips for a while, you will start to fill a little better...
