To the land of dinosaurs!

We arrived at our hotel in Kentucky on Monday morning, at 7:30. My parents had checked in the night before, and were there to greet us. Thankfully our suite was available, and we were able to check-in early. We rocked a huge continental breakfast, complete with eggs, sausage, Belgian waffles, muffins, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, etc…  it was just nice to get out of the car, and relax with a cup of coffee. We unpacked a little, and then headed to The Creation Museum.
There is an absolutely beautiful garden outside of the museum, and a petting zoo.

The Creation Museum is a Bible based museum that teaches that:
  • Scripture teaches a recent origin for man and the whole creation, spanning approximately 4,000 years from creation to Christ.
  • The days in Genesis do not correspond to geologic ages, but are six [6] consecutive twenty-four [24] hour days of creation.
  • The Noachian Flood was a significant geological event and much (but not all) fossiliferous sediment originated at that time.

  • The rest of their Statement of Faith can be found here.

    That evening, we went back to the hotel, had dinner, and went swimming in the indoor heated pool.  And then we all laid down to sleep on the most comfortable beds with the most amazing pillows ever, and died there. Well, not really, but it felt like it. It could have something to do with the fact that Bryan and I had little to no sleep for 36 some hours…
    The kids slept like a dream, and we woke up refreshed, ready  to start all over again. We rocked the breakfast, and went back to the museum for a few hours.

    Then we started on our trip to Pennsylvania. Come thou long awaited trip to Pa! We enjoyed our time in Kentucky, but are so ready to see our family.

    The weather here is cool and rainy, but it feels good. We’ve made note of the differences between the weather here, and the weather in Florida. It rains in Florida, but usually all at once in one big downpour, and then the sun comes right back out. And sometimes the sun shines right through the storm. Here, the sky is cloudy and grey, and it seems to drizzle all day long. I can imagine that this dreariness would get tiresome, but for now, I am loving it.

    Oh, sweet welcome sign! We were so happy to see it, that Bella called her cousin Natalie to tell her that we're here.

    Our plan was to stop about halfway between our Kentucky location and our Pennsylvania destination for dinner and to find a hotel. We found  the tried and true Cracker Barrel, and then, over our salad and biscuits, we tossed around the idea of just getting back in the car and finishing the trip. And that’s just what we did.
