Yes you read correctly. There was a penguin in Breathitt County, Kentucky! One of the penguins from Madagascar took another side trip and ended up in Jackson, Kentucky.
Okay…..that may not be correct but it sure sounded funny. There really was a penguin in Jackson but it didn’t talk and was never stranded on an island with King Julien.
Vacations can be expensive! Most families don’t get to go on vacations because they don’t have the extra money. I totally understand this. Family vacations really should be about spending quality time with your family and spouse. You don’t have to go to an expensive resort or the beach to have a successful family vacation.
Castles are amazing to me. What would it have been like to live in something so big and extravagant? What’s even more amazing is that the Loveland Castle in Loveland, Ohio was built by one man! One man! That is insane!
Day 2 of the 2015 Thompson Family Vacation was spent at the castle.

With a family of six, free activities are ALWAYS the best! We love to be able to get the kids out of the house. We have to make our oldest daughter have “electronic free” days. I’m sure there are other moms out there that have the same struggle.
It’s summertime and it gets soooo hot. Unfortunately we don’t have a pool at home. Any water activity we can find is great and the kids have a blast. For all those near the Beattyville, Kentucky area do I have a treat for you. There is a FREE splash park at Happy Top! Everyone loves the word free….if you say you don’t you may be fibbing.
