  • Fun Day: No complaints from the kids

    My husband Bud and I spent Saturday evening dragging around a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old (our respective grandchildren). Actually, I think it was Chase and Claire who did the dragging.

    We spent a couple of hours at Family Fun Day at Creekfront Park. It’s the third year Hodgenville Main Street and the City of Hodgenville have put on the event.

    And thank you, thank you for moving Fun Day to the evening. The cooler temperatures meant the grandbabies could stay out longer.
