  • Everyone again slept well last night-my people really just sleep good when we are not in our own beds.  I was the first one awake and actually I jumped up thinking that it was already breakfast time but Robby was quick to remind me that we had another 30 minutes before eating down the road.
  • For breakfast, we went to Dana's cabin to heat up her leftover breakfast casseroles and then Robby and I left the kids down there while we ran back to our cabin to load up.  We hadn't really packed up much last night so that left a little bit for us to do this morning.
  • Once everyone was packed up, we all loaded up and went to the visitor's center to watch a short film about the Trail of Tears.  The film was about the entire Indian removal and was fairly interesting.  I was suprised to notice that the Indians lived in log cabins and had covered wagons and I was also surprised at how well little Whitman sat through the movie.
  • When the movie was over, we loaded up and headed home.  We had to stop for a gas and potty stop on the way home but were soon home and had the car unloaded.  Robby and I unloaded the car while the kids stayed in finishing up their movie.  Then we had them help us put everything up back where it belonged.  That went surprisingly well and wewere unpacked in no time at all.
  • We pulled out the bread and had sandwiches and worked on cleaning out the fridge.  After we finished our late lunch, everyone played for a bit and then it was movie time-and nap time for me, Keaton and Whitman.  
  • Tonight at Raymar the church had a little family activity thing so we went to it.  They had snacks, which my kids that had not had supper devoured, Dave did a short little message and then we played some games.  There was a relay with a sponge and another silly family relay and the evening was ended with a dad/daughter vs. mom/sons kickball game.  The kids all had fun and it was a good way to end our mini Dennie vacation.
