Louisville. Looavul. Luhvuh. Louieville. Looaville.

No matter how you pronounce it, Louisville showed us a good time over the weekend.  Our boys LOVE traveling, it doesn’t matter where we go, they are always up for the adventure of exploring a new place and of course swimming at the hotel pool. Thankfully it was a warm weekend in Kentucky, and the boys got to swim one last time outdoors. Thumbs up for an {almost} fall swim!

Caramel apples poolside was definitely a first.

While their skin got wrinkly and water logged, I made my way to Lexington to co-teach an Essential Oils 101 class with my sweet gal, Myra along with Traci and Cyndi.

LOVE those girls and their southern accents to pieces!  I appreciate their friendship so much and love that we have Jesus, blogging, and now oils in common!

On Saturday we let the boys have one more swim before checking out and then spent the day walking around Louisville, and finding FREE things to do. The Big Four Bridge was beautiful way to begin the day.

Of course our boys find the non-traditional route to going down 7 flights of stairs. 😉

We also explored the free portions of the Louisville Slugger Museum and the $1 batting cages, as well as a couple of free exhibits at the Kentucky Science Center.  As much as we wanted to experience the attractions, tickets x 6 add up quickly, and we had a great time just exploring a new city – fountains, architecture, climbing on sculptures, etc.  Maybe sometime we’ll return for the full experience.

A funny story from a gift shop we visited – the store clerk discovered that the boys were quadruplets and about lost it.  The next thing she said to me was, “Do your toilets have pee all over them?”  That’s a new one! =)

We’re back home again in Indiana with great memories of another city and adventure with our family.

    Goodness! I have to admit to laughing out loud at the pee all over the toilets comment. Really? Just when you thought you were past all the funny and crazy comments… I’m sure you were able to respond graciously as always. : )

    Ah, I’m jealous over the Louisville Slugger museum! I’m a huge baseball fan. Looks like you guys had a great time, I’m going to have to give the caramel apples by the pool a try. Well, maybe in 3 years when we move back to America and it actually gets hot enough to swim…

    I LOVE seeing your boys enjoy the Big Four Bridge! It is my husband’s baby! He works at an engineering firm in downtown Indianapolis and he designed that bridge! I have followed your blog sporadically over the years and sat down today to catch up and saw this post! Love it I will make sure he sees it!
