Marshmallow Mondays


Louisville

Spontaneous.  That’s what we were on Saturday when we decided at 2pm to go on an overnight trip to Louisville.  By 3pm, all four of us were packed, hotel booked, and we were on the road.  We arrived at our hotel by 4:30pm, checked in, and the fun began.

Our first stop was The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, where we toured all sorts of interesting, historical exhibits and also had the opportunity to go on a 30 minute factory tour to see how Louisville Slugger bats are made.  Pretty cool!

A short walk away was the Kentucky Science Factory.  The kids had a great time exploring this fun, hands-on, educational factory.

The next morning we drove to the Louisville Zoo, and spent nearly four hours exploring lots of different animals.  This place was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

I LOVE giraffes.  This guy was simply extraordinary.  We had such a great view of him.

He showed us how he has to angle his front legs to get a drink of water.

The gorillas were so entertaining.  We were lucky enough to be able to see this guy go out and gather his food.  He walked around picking up lettuce and then raced back inside to eat.  The interesting part was that each gorilla gathered his own food and none of them shared.
