Back From Our Trip!

We are home and sooooooo tired! Everyone had a wonderful time. I just wanted to share a few photos that I thought you all might like! First off, there is the thing called Kentucky Quilt Trail that has quilt blocks painted on wood and placed mostly on old barns. Actually, this first one is the cover photo on the website! Very pretty! While we are down around Carter Caves I found a few. Actually we have some here in Louisa too, I will have to get some photos of those in a few days.


This one was on an old church and we had lunch there. They had this little tiny stand and served cheeseburger, icecream and things like that. Look were we ate!!!You could sit on the swing and eat or at one of the few tables to eat.
I thought it was so cute!!!
If you look real close you can see a quilt block on their barn in the background.
This one was on a building in the park!
Here is a photo of me and the kids standing by the lake.


Inside one of the caves.
This was some of the people in the pioneer camp! The funny thing about it, we were talking to these nice people and then come to find out I knew him! His name is Joe and about 20 years ago he and my aunt lived together!!! She has now passed away and he remarried and has a son that is 15. His wife is so nice and seemed like such a sweet lady!
Here is a photo of Richard out exploring while me and the kids are taking a break!
We took over 150 photos but I won't bore you with all of them. I added a slideshow on my sidebar, if you want to see more photos of our trip. Just click on it to make it larger. I am trying to rest up today. I have a quilt guild meeting in the morning, so I need to get my things gathered for show and tell.

Love the pictures! I just love Carter Caves. We've probably been there at least 4-5 times in the past 10 years or so and I can't wait to go back!

Love the barns with the quilt blocks. It's a reminder that quilting is so much a part of our lives.

Your pictures are wonderful.

Thank you, thank you, I have looked at the slide show and just loved it. I am not sure that I would like to go inside the caves :( were they deep down?

Looks like you have a good trip. The quilt blocks are beautiful. In Ohio they have barns with the state painted on them, one for each county. When we travel we are always looking for those.

Sounds like such a fun time! Glad you and your family were able to make such wonderful memories!
