Quick Trip to Louisville

That trip to Louisville did happen afterall. We decided not to leave on Friday because the church leadership was concerned that the roads hadn’t all cleared between here and there, but the people in charge of the tournament we were going to told us that we could still participate if we showed up on Saturday and did the tournament rounds on Sunday morning.

We had already decided to do a fun Plan B activity on Friday night here to make up for missing. We all went swimming at the Rec Center. While we were getting ready to leave, we were able to tell the kids that we were leaving in the morning! We were already packed. So, when morning came, we were ready to pull out of Franklin by 8:00am.

The drive there went quickly and the roads were great. Well, there were potholes everywhere, but no snow. We did see several cars along the side of the road that were still covered in  snow. And when we drove back yesterday, it was very apparent why the interstate near Elizabethtown was stopped. It is so hilly. There is an incline that goes forever. Slow traffic in ice and snow would have made that impossible. But that was southbound and we didn’t have to worry about that road until 2 days after the snow stopped and the weathers warmed.

We got to Louisville at noon, joined the tournament group at Hometown Buffet for lunch, went to Renaissance Fun park (arcade games, laser tag, mini golf, go-carts), participated in their kids and family worship night at South East Christian Church and on Sunday, we did the tournament. We came in at 5th place in our bracket.

Here’s a photo from breakfast yesterday. We were so tired. Louisville is in the Easter Time Zone and it was the first day of Daylight Saving Time. 7:00 breakfast felt like 5:00.
