Friday's event of the day was Churchill Downs; Scott wanted to watch a few races and sip a mint julep. While I enjoyed the races, I'm glad I didn't get my own drink - I definitely did not like the sips I had. To make it even better, we got in FREE - always helps to ask about a military discount.
That evening we went to a park along the river and the kids burned off energy. Even big kids have fun at a playground although James managed to avoid the camera.
Saturday morning we went to the Louisville Slugger Museum - I think all had a nice time there. This time the military discount got Scott in for free.
Scott was THRILLED to be able to hold a bat once used by Mickey Mantle.
Even Theresa decided it would be fun.
And once again James avoids the camera.
That afternoon we went to the Beatles music fest - Abbey Road on the River. Some of the bands were good, the weather was prettier than expected (nice breeze off the river) and we enjoyed 'carnival' food. We went to Mass, had dinner and then crashed at the hotel to prepare for a busy day on Sunday.
We went to Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana (I kid you not) - military discount got us good prices for an amusement park with a water park included. We stayed there for 8.5 hrs and it was HOT but admission includes UNLIMITED soda - a definite nice perk.
Scott had planned to stop at the Makers Mark distillery on the way home on Monday but unfortunately it was closed.
