Well, that bites. I typed the whole thing, had a slip of the finger and the whole darn thing disappeared, so here we go again.
I know, I know, this is totally off-topic, but where else do you turn when you're going on vacation and looking for great places to eat, fun things to do or see? Our son is going into the army in September, so DH & I are taking him on one last vacation with
us before he goes in. He's the only child, so hanging with Mom & Dad isn't always the most fun since he doesn't have anyone to hang out with his age. Unless.... there are a lot of cars making left turns. That's right... DH & DS are (drumroll please) NASCAR
fans! Which I guess since it's on every Sunday, it means that I am too (sort of). We are heading to Bristol, TN for 3 action-packed days of racing.
Heading out Saturday from central Illinois to Evansville, IN to see niece & her family, then on to Louisville, KY to see nephew on Sunday. Will probably spend most of Monday in the Louisville area and then will begin to meander our way south through Lexington,
KY and then on to Knoxville, TN. Will probably hit Dollywood and/or Gatlinburg. Wednesday is truck racing, Thursday is open, and Friday & Saturday are racing. Will head back Sunday/Monday.
Any zoos in the area? I'm sucker for them and if DH & DS know what's good for them, they'll love the idea.
Once we get back from vacation, we'll be planning my son's going away party for hometown friends. He has incredibly beautiful curly hair (about 12" in a ponytail), that he will have cut at his party and donate to Locks of Love.
Any ideas appreciated. TIA everybody!
