Kentucky: Part 2

The next house we stayed at (we did a lot of house-hopping) was my mother-in-law's friend Robin. It was the most adorable log cabin you'd ever seen on this huge plot of land in Paducah, KY (I think? I could be wrong).

I'm not a dog person but this guy was the sweetest.

Their backyard. So fun.

Brandon and I decided to adventure out through the woods one day.

If you look really closely, you can see a brown blob of a deer at the end of the trail. I wish I would have had my zoom lens because it ran off before I could manage a better picture.

Brandon had just inherited a gun from his uncle (where we stayed the night before) and was pretending to be 007 or something. But no worries, it wasn't loaded.

About 20 minutes in, we decided to call it quits because we found about 10 ticks crawling up our legs. Mmmmm.

One of the most fun parts about our trip was getting to play on this. I ended up getting stuck in the back with the girls on this trip. It was bumpy to say the least. And I probably should have been paying more attention to what was happening than taking pictures because I definitely almost got thrown out a few times. It was worth it though... I think.

What's a vacation without a margarita?

We managed to escape the kiddos for a little bit and went down to this creek to catch some creepy crawlies. 
I felt 10 years old all over again.

I caught a tadpole with my bare hands! I was pretty proud of myself.

And of course, we had to bring our captives back to show off to the girls. But don't worry, we set them free before it got dark. ;)
