Pictures from our week long vacation in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio.

 Our family picture on the cabin stairs.
 Looking over the New River Gorge.

 New River Gorge Bridge.

 I admit it.  I come from a very weird family.
 The Princess Tree.  No, really.

 Apparently we needed to get every view possible of that bridge.
 Deep Fried Dill Pickles - they are WAY better than you would think!

 Wasp nest.

 Huge mud puddle on our way across the scary Mckendree Road.  There were tons more of these mud puddles everywhere.  But I felt safe, even with boulders in the way of the road, and drop offs at every turn.  I was glad that our van's wheels were at least 6 inches away from the edge of the cliff.  At least we had 4 wheel drive.  Without that, we could still be stuck in a 4 foot deep mud puddle.  Or worse.  There were plenty of branches in the way of the road, (if you could call it a road) as if they were warnings telling us not to go further.  Dad just inched out of the car, hoping that he wouldn't take a false step and moved it out of the way.  I tried not to lean to the side, fearing that the car would topple over and fall 300 feet off the cliff.  This so called "shortcut," is not a good place for any tourists visiting the state of West Virginia.  In fact, Mckendree road is not a good shortcut for anyone!  I'm warning you.  Anyone in the right mind should listen to me as I say this.  Never.  Ever.  Ever.  Ever, take a cruise down this dangerous road!  Beware!  Beware!!!


 Why my dad had to get a picture of this worn down car, I do not know.

 We're on a coal mine tour!

Visiting family!

And kittens!

Okay, so while we were on vacation, we went and saw the Creation Museum.  It was amazing!  I got a bunch of pictures, but if I put them on here, then I have to explain them all.  And that would be hard.  So, I'm only going to put on a few.  But really, this was a great museum, and you really need to take the time to see it!

See any similarities?  I sure don't.  How can anyone come to the conclusion that we evolved from apes, or fish, or anything else.  It's just plain stupid!  I'm glad that at least one museum has got it right!

Sorry that you can't really see what it says.  But let me sum it up for ya.  THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS EVOLUTION.  The end.

The Creation Museum was great, and it totally changed my entire view of God and his creation.  We saw a presentation called Men in White, and in it I learned that Science Teachers can be wrong.  They are always saying that the world was formed millions of years ago, by complete mistake!  How could all the planets be lined up so perfectly so that we could get the right amount of sunlight, without being burned to a crisp, or freezing to death?  If the world was formed millions of years ago, and salt keeps collecting into the ocean, wouldn't there be enough salt by now that we could walk across the ocean?  I am serious!  This museum was AMAZING.  At some points I wanted to cry because there was so much information about God's creation that I hadn't known.  How can people NOT know that there is a God?  There is proof all around them!
