Road Trip: Day four and five

DAY FOUR:

We drove from Ogalla, NE to Salina, KS and stayed in a hotel.

Activity:

Prairie Dog Town in Oakley, KS.

This place read like it was going to be an animal freak show. It had a couple unusual animals: two steeds with a fifth leg hanging off their backs, a dwarfed donkey….and that’s it. The rest were a hodge podge of sad looking animals in cages. A box of rattle snakes “sizzling” and the grounds littered with prairie dogs popping in and out of their network of tunnels (don’t trip on a hole!) proved to be a great break from the road for the boys.

A tiny prairie dog head is peeking out of its burrow. I know, hard to see.

DAY FIVE:

We drove from Salina, KS to Nashville, TN where we stayed in a city hotel.

Activities:

Bowling in Mt. Vernon, IL.

Watched an episode of Driver, Dine-ins and Dives for Athena’s Greek Family Restaurant in Nashville and then ate there for dinner when we pulled into town. It was indeed yummy!

    Ha! I love the signs in the background: “Attitude adjustment while you wait”. I need that one at work! And “I don’t have a gun… my Pitbull has AIDS”. Nice.
