1st Carnival

Saturday, May 28, 2016

There was a carnival set up in the mall parking lot this week so we decided
to go try out some kiddie rides and Kindred thought it was the best thing ever.


Dylan really didn't but he humored me for a photo op.


Okay, we've ridden a lot of carousels in our cumulative lifetimes...
but this one was sincerely the FASTEST carousel I have ever been on.
I had to brace myself and hold onto Kindred for dear life.
The fact that children were not being flung off of it still surprises me.
I was not the only parent who voiced this fact.
The next time I saw it, it was going much slower so I am thinking it was not intentional 
or maybe they received a complaint. 



Look at this face! Oh it makes me wish Opryland were still in Nashville!
Kindred would absolutely love it!!

You'll never be able to find her...unless you can hear her giggling the entire time you're looking for her!

Hike First, Nap Later

Sunday, May 15, 2016

I gotta say, the walking trails here in Elizabethtown are much better than in 
Bowling Green. There is a really long loop that goes along the edge of a 
meadow and the woods and then through an under-the-roadway-tunnel over to the lake.
There are wooded trails in the park alongside the lake.
As well as other trails out in the county.
We love visiting this trail!!


Especially when it leads to a sweet napping baby!



Happy Birthday, Honey!

Let's go buy me a 4-Runner in Indiana! Hahaha!!


I decided one day, awhile back, that I wanted a Jeep so I could ride around with the top down.
And, then...Berg promptly talked me out of getting a Jeep.
So, I decided to get a 4-Runner because you can roll the back glass down 
which essentially gives you a hard-top Jeep.
I started researching 4-Runners and found that there is about a 4 year window
that mechanics love to buy because they allegedly run forever. 
The window is '98-'01.
It has to do with where they were manufactured then and what engine choices they made.
So, I set out to find my dream 4-Runner that will last me until I am 80.
We've been to Nashville, Covington Ky (across the river from Cincy)
and this weekend, we went to Indianapolis.
Bergen is just delighted that Craigslist is a thing we have in the world.

It is in remarkably good shape for the price. 
I mean, I knew I hit the jackpot when I got the Carfax report.
But I still bluffed them down $300 more.
And, then Bergen bluffed them after I went to the car with Kindred
that I meant the price I said (and not a penny more!)
 so they figured in the taxes then too.
I am a good deal hunter and I gotta say I've never felt more alive!!
It was great!! Haha!


We visited The Virginia B. Fairbanks 100 Acre Art Nature Park while we were in town.
