Where I stayed
The Jacksons' Lake Front Oasis
The Jacksons are in Evansville, Indiana so we make the day-long drive to reach them before Bret’s cousins start a road trip of their own to Florida the following morning. We arrive in the evening and are greeted with varieties from the grill and ice chest.
On hand are Jimmy, Shannon, Auntie K, Jayce, Kari, Jai, Jolie, Jacob, Jennifer and Jayden. Yes, it was hard keeping all the Js straight :)
We settle in easily for some much needed catch-up conversation on the outdoor deck and have a blast talking late into the night
The next morning we’re treated to a final sendoff of the younger cousins who are completely packed to the gills for the drive to Florida. (We can totally relate.) Then we spend the entire day on the patio or in the pool or fishing in the lake, all the while chatting with Jimmy and Shannon.
This day was a very nice break from the driving routine and we consider moving in for the rest of the summer to repeat the cycle of sleep-swim-eat-chat-drink. But the road beckons and we must be off in the morning toward Kentucky. Many thanks to the Jacksons for their hospitality – we look forward to hanging again real soon.
