(Use above nativation bar for quick access to specific days)

We spend 5 days visiting Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee. We stay three nights at Barbara and Mike's home in Lexington and one night down in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We visit two amusement parks: Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

On Tuesday we wake up early and then Sheila takes us to SFO for flight. We take American Airlines to Dallas and then connecting to Louisville. We chose Louisville since it was a little cheaper than flying into Lexington. Our flight was uneventful and on time and before we knew it we were getting our rental Mazda 6 and driving out from the airport.

The time was close to 7pm by the time we arrived at Lynn's Paradise Cafe in Louisville where we had dinner. Barbara and Mike suggested us eating here before we hit the road for the hour+ drive to Lexington. The restaurant was a colorful place with fun atmosphere. There was a gift shop in the front with kitschy unusual items. After our meal we hit the freeway east toward Lexington where we arrived at the Sternbergers around 9:30pm or so. We chatted for a bit, played a round of Blitz before turning in for the evening.
