Jacob’ s Summer Adventures in Kentucky, Tennessee and Kansas

School is starting tomorrow. Yay! We have had an action-packed summer. It’s time to sum it all up.

Salato Wildlife Center in Frankfurt, KY

When we were there, it was closed for a fundraising event, so we only saw some wild turkeys. We vowed to return for the kids to see the wild animals.

Spring Cove in Frankfurt, KY

The water in the waterfalls and streams was cold and refreshing! We all dipped our feet in the water and felt the bone-chilling coldness rushing through our bodies.

Gatlinburg, TN and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Carter Caves State Park

Fourth of July Celebration in Campbellsville, KY

Campbellsville went all out with different types of event for the Fourth. We had lunch at a barbecue joint downtown called Brothers. Best pulled pork meat ever!

Abbey of Gethsemani in Trappist, KY

The best place to contemplate God, peace, wholeness and holiness.

We watched a documentary about the monks’ life, visited the welcome center and gift shop and visited their cemetery. Their photo and quote collection is beautiful and thought-provoking.

Selling Lemonade at Bridle Creek Apartments

He needed money to buy his own umbrella. So began a business enterprise. It turned out to be a whole-family affair.

Kansas, Here We Come!
