we made it!

We finally made it to Holiday World! the trip was fairly quick and painless. Traffic was *Generally* pleasant. There was one or two jokers who don't drive as well as I do of course.

free soda~!

How glorious it is at end of day. They offer all the free drinks you can muster at Holiday world, compliments of the frequent Pepsi Oasis buildings.
Jacob, of course, chose Mt. Dew most of the day. at 11:51PM he is finally out.

2nd pole barn of god

2nd pole barn of god - Santa Clause, IN
I couldn't believe my eyes! We'd spent a very enjoyable day in Holiday World, and on the return trip to the hotel, I spot this IMMACULATE 2 story, complete with side wings and a full bell tower, POLE BARN of god. This is the second one I've captured a picture of in recent days. I know of at least one more near our hometown.
There must be a grass roots movement to convert all the heritage brick built churches to the new, modern versions of the pole barn.
I consider it a personal quest to post each and every pole barn of god that I see from now on. Expect updates.

Oooohhh! the Salmon Run

Great success! A ride that Judd can go on while the big boys are on the coaster.

Waiting to get there

Waiting on detour traffic on 231 S while on our way to holiday world. Found out on the return trip that we had missed our first turn off for HOliday world, and ended up in this construction delay and detour.
