As you drive through Kentucky, you could probably play a car game based on the number of quilt patterns you see on barns. I guess you call that folk art, but whatever its term, those patterns are part of a long tradition. For me, it only enhances an already pleasurable experience. I love backroads.

It’s official, and this time it really is officially official – Fall is here. So I guess I can’t really complain about all of the pumpkin spice flavored (insert item here) or new fall flavors.

DQ has announced their lineup of Fall Blizzard Flavors and I have to admit that some of them sound pretty doggone yummy.

It's called Santo Spirit, and up until yesterday, I thought you could only find it in California or order it from their website. I actually found two varieties at High Spirits in Evansville.
If your kids are eager to get into their Halloween costume, let them go Trick Or Treating early at Scales Lake Park in Boonville. Growing up in Boonville, one of my favorite things to do in the summer was to visit Scales Lake Park. We would go camping there all of the time. Whether it was camping in a tent or camper or even staying in one of their cabins, we did it all. Not to mention all of the other things that Scales Lake had to offer such as, riding our bikes around on the trails, playing at the playgrounds, and visiting the petting zoo. But my favorite part about going there was the lake itself. You can swim at the beach, rent a boat, go kayaking, and fishing.

You don't have to be mad as a hatter or be named Alice to visit Wonderland. You just have to go to St. Louis. There's an Alice In Wonderland pop-up bar that is coming to St. Louis that would make for a fun date night or girls' night out.
