Mother-Daughter-Sister Trip Summer 2009

I decided to plan a little trip for Mom, Debbie and I. We also invited Lacey and Sara, but they weren't able to come this time....hopefully they can next time!

I booked us a room at French Lick Springs Resort in French Lick Indiana. I HIGHLY recommend this resort/casino to anyone looking for a nice little trip away! You can check out their website HERE for more information. Talk about historical....beautiful.....gorgeous. I just can't say enough. This was my 2nd time staying there since the hotel was recently restored and Roger and I had also taken Sydney there in 2000 when she was about 5 years old.

We planned to leave around 4pm on Monday (July 27th), and just as expected, Mom showed up raring to go at 6pm! LOL

It was a beautiful evening for a drive. We decided to stop in Mitchell, Indiana for dinner at Back Yard Burgers. None of us had ever eaten there and it was fantastic. So good, in fact, that we stopped there on our way home on Tuesday for a late lunch! :o)

We got checked into our room in the Spa Wing at about 8:30pm. After lots of oohing and ahhhing and letting Mom "freshen up" {While Debbie and I teased her about picking up rich old man! Heheh), we headed for the casino! WooHoo! I played a little bit of Let It FAVORITE game, but I wasn't doing any good so I switched to playing slots...which weren't any better! Debbie did pretty okay on the slots considering she was playing with bonus dollars from signing up for the Player's Card. Mom...well, she didn't do too bad, either, but I don't think she was a winner. :o(

Now for a couple of pictures...

This first picture is Mom, my sister Debbie and I outside what I call the grand entrance. It is just so pretty. Don't we look cute! Mom tried to mother us and make us take off our glasses, but it was really sunny and we didn't want to be all squinty in the picture!

I wish I had taken more pictures in our room, but this one makes me smile! Mom was just amazed with the room and had to look at EVERY.SINGLE.THING!! LOL I'm glad she liked it so made me smile to see her smile!

That's all for tonight! I've got LOTS more pictures to share, but I also have work to catch up on and some cleaning to do. I'll try to share some more tomorrow!


I am actually, really, truly going to post something tonight or tomorrow...with pictures even!! I know you won't believe it until you see it, but just you wait!!!!


PS - I've actually got LOTS of posts to catch up on, so after I post what I'm talking about above, I'll get to work on the rest of them!
