Nice view of corn, apple trees, barns and blue sky. Ahhh, lovely!

Arrived at Lexington nice and early. Thanks to my cousin, Shiela, who recommended staying at Kentucky Horse Park, we found a beautiful place to camp!

On Wed., we all went to the horse park and got to go to the International horse museum, went on a half-hour trail ride, saw a show of former champion racing horses (they were beautiful!) and a "parade of breeds" where we learned and saw different breeds of horses. Very interesting! Thomas now wants a horse when we get back to Alaska. We'll see, I told him...

We were able to visit my cousin Shiela and her husband, Chris, and kids, Logan, Graham, and Megan. We had a wonderful dinner at their home in Lexington.

The next day, Thursday, cousin Shiela and Megan invited us to Evans Orchard, which is a great pumpkin patch/playground/corn maze farm outside of Lexington. Thankfully, Shiela brought her camera and got some great pics of the kids having a really good time here in the pumpkin patch. What a great way to spend a fall day!
