We just returned from an awesome long weekend in Louisville, KY. We picked the location simply because it was the midway point between where Cass and her family live and where we live. It worked perfectly and was such a fun trip. We set out on the 6.5 hour drive early Friday morning (4:30 am). The boys handled the drive very well for the most part.
We made a stop at Mammoth Caves for a little stretching break. That was a very good decision as the boys needed to get out of the car by then and it was super fun. AND, added bonus, the slept the rest of the way to Louisville. =)
We had such a blast with this family. Ethan absolutely adores Hana. They spent hours playing with each other and no one got hurt…emotionally or physically. Rare with kids of this age. =) Hana is 9 months older than Ethan. Micah is 10 months older than Ellie. We say that Micah had a love/hate relationship with Ellie. He gave her lots of hugs, but was VERY protective of his food when she was around. Here are some pics of us at the hotel. Ethan and Hana probably spent a good hour reading books together in the other room.
