Big Bone Lick
Today was a kid day and we went to Big Bone Lick State Park in Northern Kentucky, where the animals you wouldn't want to see coming after you once roamed.
It's a pretty quiet place - a few statues of the big guys, miniature golf, playground. There are some hiking trails that we didn't try this time - Nora already has about a be-zillion mosquito bites from a pick-up softball game at a friend's house and Aaron was complaining about his shoes. (There's nothing wrong with his shoes, He just prefers sandals and Merrill's.)
The sign outside the park said "Rabbit Hash" this way, and since we'd never been there I turned that way. Had it said how many miles it was, I probably would have turned back the way we came. I hoped to find some sandwiches at the general store, but there were none and the BBQ place wasn't open, so we spent a few minutes snacking at a picnic table overlooking the Ohio River and went on our way.
We did stop at a Waffle House when we got to the interstate and sat on the red stools, ate, and watched the cook. The cook wasn't very busy at 4:00, so we didn't see very much cooking, but it was still good times and the stools were nice and twist-y.
On the way home we saw a blimp and figured that maybe it was for the Goettafest, which starts in a few days. We made big plans for Thursday, then learned that it doesn't open until 5:00 that day. We'll just have to make other big plans.
