Before leaving Louisville, we stopped at the Louisville Slugger Factory Museum where they actually make the baseball bats from start to finish. We took a tour of the factory and the kids got to do a little version of a batting cage which was SO much fun! They had a lot of baseball and baseball bat history, and gave us each a mini Louisville Slugger to take home with us. The big challenge is going to be keeping the kids from swinging those bats and connecting with someone's head, a wall, or a piece of furniture!
The biggest part of our trip has very few pictures, and you'll understand why... After Louisville, we drove to Bowling Green, KY - halfway between Louisville and Nashville where Mammoth Cave is located. Believe it or not, this cave is the longest in the world and is absolutely amazing!
To save my camera from being scratched up while tunneling through the cave, we skipped taking pictures while inside and simply took a quick shot by the car after finishing the hike... Anybody notice the blue and grey theme here? Completely unintentional but yes, we're a Georgetown family! I find it so impressive that the kids were still smiling after hiking for 2+ hours well underground!
Although most people thought our vacation choice was a bit obscure, we were apparently starting a fad ... The AJC ran an article this weekend about all the fun stuff to do in Kentucky with travel tips and info about the May 5th Kentucky Derby! (Click HERE!) There's surprisingly a lot to do around there, and the kids enjoyed the trip as much as we did. I wish I had taken pictures of the drive - who knew Kentucky would be absolutely gorgeous! Pretty pretty horse country and well worth the drive!
