Trip to the Creation Museum

As part of our Kentucky camping trip last week, we journeyed up to the northern part of the state to camp at Big Bone Lick State Park in Union and visit the  Creation Museum!  This has been on my list of "things to see" for several years, since the museum opened, and friends who had visited already had raved about it. 

The museum lived up to our expectations. It is a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility which brings the biblical account of Creation to life.  The "Men in White" show and the Planetarium show were excellent.  The walk-thru exhibits showcasing the Garden of Eden, Noah's shipbuilding site, and more, were enchanting.  And the gardens outside the the museum, with pathways, bridges, gazebos, and pond, were stunning.  We even found lunch at the on-site restaurant, Noah's Cafe, to be reasonably priced, amply portioned,  and very tasty.  Yes, you should go.  

We enjoyed this campground too, although the sites were a bit close together, without many trees.   Thankfully, the weather cooled off and was just perfect for the last 2 days, so we actually enjoyed sitting out at the picnic table and going for walks around the campground.  We did have to make one trip to find an Urgent Care Center ... .again... for Amanda's ear.  Her ear infection flared up again, and required a THIRD antibiotic and this time, antifungal drops as well. 

 We dropped in at McD's or Wendy's a couple of times to hook up to wireless internet and check our email.  Hopeless, I know.  All of us.

Looks like you had an awesome time Beth. We haven't been camping in years...since Brandon and Jessie were younger. We need to invest in some new camping gear and "just do it".
