1.) My husband really likes gummy candy and tootsie rolls(I should have come to this realization before now but I've officially made note of it now)
2.) "Free" hotel breakfast certainly can be a lot like hospital food/ cafeteria food/ school lunch food (we did not enjoy it at all at either hotel)
3.) DO NOT give your debit card to the hotel for incidentals because they might put a hold with a charge on it for a week even though you didn't have any incidentals.
4.) I need to make a point to travel with my family at least once a year. Getting away together and adventuring is absolutely priceless.
5.) I much, much, much prefer walking through the woods or boating through a cave or anything out in nature as opposed to exploring/ walking/ shopping around in a big city.
6.) Boat rides through caves are both awesome and a little scary all at the same time. Totally worth every penny!
7.) Kentucky is really really neat!
8.) Kentucky looks at lot like Guatemala at points. (no there aren't dinosaurs in Guatemala)
9.) Indiana takes about a million hours to drive through (I already knew that actually but still worth mentioning)
10.) Despite a very adequate amount of sleep my child can get exhausted beyond function-ability just from too much vacationing (DO NOT leave the stroller in the car no matter how much energy he appears to have!)
11.) Smarties work just about as good as coffee (maybe better) when driving at night and one is trying to keep oneself awake. Or maybe it was a placebo; I thought I was incapable of night driving as of at least five years ago and I rocked the last five hours of the drive home in the dark without my eyes even getting heavy... ate a boat load of smarties though!
12.) Cats, dogs, and I guess even sunflowers can really miss their family after three days of not seeing them. I am NOT going to take a photo of my pathetic sunflower upon arriving home (I think the thunderstorm did something to it, not sure)
