Labor Day Weekend Getaway (3)

Our last day of our getaway adventure, we promised the girls they could swim.  The weather had been quite rainy due to the remnants of hurricane Isaac.  We packed up all of our things and checked out then let the girls swim for about a half hour before the next rain shower moved in. They were so thankful! Labor Day Weekend Getaway
We left Louisville and headed for Corydon, the original state capital of Indiana and the site of the only Civil War battle to take place on Indiana soil. There is so much history packed into this tiny little town. Labor Day Weekend Getaway - Corydon

We left Corydon and headed for the banks of the Ohio River. We visited O'Bannon Woods State Park to see the beautiful river. Labor Day Weekend Getaway - O'Bannon Woods State Park Labor Day Weekend Getaway - O'Bannon Woods State Park
One of us missed out on this visit. Pumpkin fell asleep and slept the whole time we were at the park. She and I missed out on the nature center and homestead site. Peanut and Daddy got to see the only working hay press barn in Indiana. Peanut had a ball checking out some of the farm animals. Check out the tongue on that ox!

Before heading home we stopped at a restaurant that has a gorgeous view of the Ohio River. It was a beautiful end to our trip. Labor Day Weekend Getaway - Supper by the Ohio River
On the way home we stopped at a gas station to use the restroom since one of us is still new to using the potty. Pumpkin and I went in first because Peanut was asleep. Next Daddy went in. As soon as he entered, Pumpkin said, "Mommy, you drive home!" I asked, "Do you want to leave Daddy here? He will get sad." She replied with, "Yes. I'm getting old." Oh my goodness!

We had a great time together. It was so nice to get away for a few days and just enjoy being a family doing fun things together.
