Mammoth Cave

Ty and I decided to do something adventurous this past Labor Day... we went caving!  Just under 2 hours away from us is a well know National Park... Mammoth Cave!

The park is beautiful and extremely big! There is almost 400 miles of caves to explore as well as camp sites, bike and hiking trails, horse back riding, boating/canoeing, and even a zip-line. We chose to explore the caves.

I was excited and nervous at the same time for the tour called the New Entrance...

We took a short bus ride through the gorgeous park to the "New Entrance"... this highly secured door.  From here we went down a total of 250 feet to our first resting spot. Can you say...claustrophobic!  Well I was but my cute husband calmed my nerves and I was fine the rest of the way.

Better not fall...

Watch your head...

I'm crouching down in this pic even though I probably could stand straight up!

Tyler and his noticeable walk

Maybe I could hold the rock up long enough for us to get out...?

So glad I brought my camera to take model pics of my hubbie! haha

The coolest place on our tour was called Frozen Niagara. It is 130 feet below the surface.

We went down and additional 48 stairs to a cool room to look up at the rocks that resemble Niagara Falls.

Kinda gross looking if you ask me!  But we were still hungry!

KFC anyone?! 

My darling nephew asked me when I was visiting UT how Kentucky was. Then he asked if I had had a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken! Haha I told him not yet but that was a great question. So this chicken bite is to you Cameron! :)

Tyler and I had a great trip to Mammoth Cave! We defiantly will be making trips back!

White Coat

Tyler's White Coat ceremony is an event we have been looking forward to!
The White Coat is a kick off to starting Dental School...

My darling Mom sent a white package with us when we moved for Tyler to open on his White Coat Day!  The present was filled with lots of "white" goodies! My Mom always thinks of the cutest gifts! 



Congrats Ty...I mean Student Doctor Tyler Hicks!

Tyler's Dental School Friends

Dental Wives.... Its a team effort, so feel free to call me Student Doctor Lauren!

It was so great to have Ty's mom here with us for this special day!

I am so proud and grateful for Tyler! He worked so hard to get into Dental School! It was nice to have this ceremony for him to be recognized. Ty and I are both excited for what is to come and feel so blessed he got into U of L, because we could't have picked a better place for our family!
