Almost a year ago we booked a cruise on the Jewel of the Seas. Teresa, our cruise agent, sent us a list of cruises and deals she had found and out of the few that she told us about we chose this one because
On our way out of Jacksonville we stopped at a yogurt shop and Duke and Goblin got their own plain yogurt.
They dug in and would only stop when the brain freeze set in. You could see the pain in their
We caught I-75 in Albany and headed South, in all of the years I can remember driving this stretch of highway I can\’t remember a single time that it wasn\’t under construction. Either the State of Georgia
We all woke up hungry and ready to get moving. The showers at the campground were all under construction so no showers for us. We also discovered our tent was covered in sugar ants, they were inside and
We arrived at the campground around 7:45 pm so the store was closed. We registered at the drop box and headed through the broken gate toward the campground. As we drove in we saw a field of RVs all looking
Our Tom Tom was putting us in Auburn, Alabama around 5:30 pm but because all of us on the highway were going about 80 mph (shhh…) I got the time down to around 4:50 pm before stopping for gas near Birmingham.
We all slept very well being in a hotel for the night. The Sheraton Music City is dog friendly and there were a ton of dogs staying at the hotel. last night. Only one dog was barking and it was one of
We pulled into Nashville before dark and called our friend Summer and her fiance Matt to meet them and their dogs at the dog park. We were excited to finally find a dog park for the pups since they hadn\’t
We continued South toward Louisville, Kentucky where we planned on stopping to see Churchill Downs. They had just had a massive amount of rain in Louisville which caused a lot of water damage to the Museum
On our way out of the park we stopped in Madison, Indiana and found Cafe Camille for breakfast.
It was a local restaurant with a great atmosphere and a very simple breakfast menu. I had the hungry
We woke to the sounds of raccoons chattering all around us. (Good thing our dogs don\’t know what raccoons sound like, to them it was just noise outside the tent.) Warren had already hit the showers and
It was a very quiet campground, we had maybe 5 other people on our loop and nobody within 5 campsites of us.
We started our fire using almost all of our remaining lighter fluid. For some reason
We drove along the Ohio River as we headed toward Indiana, across the river from us was Kentucky and from the Ohio side of the river the grass did appear much greener on the other side. Eventually we picked
We started our day by repacking the car again. It changes things a bit when you add someone and their stuff to your already established packing scheme, but we were starting to develop a new plan for the
A few hours later we woke up. Time to go explore the state park a bit then get some firewood. We walked along the red bird trail where many campers were fishing. None of them were very optimistic about
By the time we picked up the dogs we decided to go get some ice cream at the little shop we found earlier and then go back to the campsite for a nap. We hit Joe Sundae\’s in Sandusky and drooled over the
We decided to try a steal coaster next, they are usually smoother and because there was probably another hour wait the Advil had time to work on our headaches. The Magnum XL-2000 was our next stop, wait
The funny thing about theme park food is that they really have no competition so the food and the service is just average at best. Warren and I were waiting for our Cheeseburger/Smiley Fry baskets while
Our first coaster for the day was Raptor, with a sign out front telling us the wait was one hour. The line was ridiculous, and unlike Disney and Universal there is no Fast Pass or single rider line. The
When we pulled in to the parking area we asked where the pet check was, and they sent us to Snoopy\’s Dog House. We didn\’t get to the park early enough to get one of the larger runs for the dogs but once
