Day 26 - Homeward Bound! VA, WV, KY

We left Virginia this morning, starting our trip back home.  The trip has gone by so fast and we are all a little sad that it will soon be over!

Andy had wanted to visit Richmond, VA and Petersburg, VA but we needed another day to fit these in.  They will have to wait for the next visit!  We did take time to stop at the Appomattox Court House and McLean House where Lee surrendered.  I wish we had more time there!  It was beautifully restored with re-enactors, animals and nice exhibits.

From Appomattox, we continued through West Virginia and into Kentucky where we spent the night in Lexington.

Tired kids!
We found a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives featured restaurant called Parkette Drive-In.  Their double burger was featured on the show and their fried chicken got great reviews online.  I had the fried chicken dinner and everyone else had burgers.  We followed it with a Colossal Car Crash dessert which was also amazing!  The best fried chicken I have ever had!
