Kicking in Kentucky

Kicking in Kentuckyfeatured

Instilling the love of travel in our kids was something we had discussed even before getting pregnant.  As much as we love our life in the woods, sometimes we dream of a nomadic lifestyle.  Until we take that plunge, we try to get away as much as we can.  When Baby Bear was born, we vowed he would see all fifty states, all of our state parks, 90% of the national parks, and a dozen countries.  We’ve been slowly working on our list.  In June we were able to tick a national park and new state off our list.

We started our road trip with a stop at Mammoth Cave National Park.  The boys had a great time but Traveling Fox got a little cold in the cave.  Next time we will remember to bring a light jacket.  

We spent the night in historic Bardstown.  After supper we retired to our rooms at Jailers Inn Bed and Breakfast.   Advertised as one the more haunted sites in America.  Despite having an upstairs room, we checked out without a ghostly encounter.  

Next up was a stop in bourbon country at Maker’s Mark Distillery for a tour and lunch.  We stopped at a few distilleries on this trip and Maker’s was the most beautiful.

We spent the next couple nights at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.  This gorgeous farm is a must visit in Kentucky.  Our room was clean and spacious.  The grounds are immaculately kept and beautiful.  Our country bears absolutely loved exploring.On the journey back home we stopped at a few more distilleries.  We highly recommend a Kentucky road trip to all our friends.
