The Florida Chronicles Part 7

Can it really be the last day oƒ our trip?  I can't believe that by the time the sun sets, we'll be home.  It's bittersweet.  I always love being home after being gone for a few days.  After being on the road for a bit, my dear hubby was pulling off the side of the road.  When asked why he said "because you need a Tennessee magnet".  Yeah once again for hubby!  Now my set could be complete!  He stopped off at the Museum of Appalacia.  He sure knows me!  I was so bummed we couldn't stay and take a tour - not enough time.  That said, it was so nice snapping these photos.  Matt and I hope to take a trip here sometime again in the future when we can spend more time enjoying it.

Appalachia Heritage Museum store.

Outside buildings.

Inside the store.

Chickens were there to greet us.  Jon loved them!  They were allowed to wander freely.

Quilts in the store.

Neat cookbooks and such.

We hope to be able to make a gun like this for the boys.  Fun!

Ok now these are just awesome!

More buildings outside.  Man I'd love to know the history here.

Little gadgets and trinkets.

Museum sign.

More outside buildings.

I have no idea what this is but it's neat.

Back in the car we go.  I was able to get a neat handmade magnet as well as a few other things from here.  Very neat place!  

Unfortunately, I did not take notes on this trip so I don't have much to say.  I can say that when we hit the Welcome to Ohio sign, I was geeked!

We were about 1 hour and 15 minutes from home when I got really hungry.  Matthew suggested we stop off at Cabela's to get some dinner.   Sounded like a plan to me!  I had never been here before and neither had the kids.  What a way to round out the day as well as the trip.

This is the cafe where we had dinner.  Lyshie had wild boar, Matt had elk and I had bison.  The boys had mac 'n cheese.  Go figure.  rofl!  Everything was wonderful!  I loved the wild boar but was not as fond of the elk.  It wasn't bad, just not my think.  My bison was of course fabulous!  Oh and Lyshie and I also got broccoli cheese soup.  It was the best I've ever had (besides what we make at home).  Very good!

We're now home getting ready to put away everything that we just brought in.  It's so good to be home even though it feels almost like it's not our home right now.  lol.  I can't wait to sink into my wonderful bed and pull up the covers.  God has blessed us so much with this trip in more ways than I can count.  Thank you again Mark and Cheri, this has helped more than you'll ever know.
