Kentucky w/CW

Otto and I drove up yesterday and picked up CW today in Kentucky.  We spent the day in Louisville, before driving home to Georgia.

Me and CW on the glove 🙂

I have never been to Louisville, so we were excited to visit the Louisville Slugger Factory and also the Frazier History Museum.  We did the Frazier first, and I thought we would be in there all day.  CW and Otto were fascinated by the military history, and especially the Samurai Exhibit.  I also loved how we “made” CW watch on of the historical interpretations, but later – when he was talking to B10 – he could remember every single thing!  (Of course, he was using his souvenir miniature bat from the Louisville Slugger Factory as the “weapon”, but whatever!  He was LISTENING!)

For lunch I had done a ton of research and found this great little Italian restaurant near the museums: Luigi’s Pizzeria.  When we got there, we found out horrible news. 😦  Apparently they don’t serve their full menu on Saturdays (not that it said that ANYWHERE on their website, trust me, I looked before and after!).  So, everything was full of cheese (and pre-cooked).  Even the salads were pre-made with cheese on top.  😦

After doing a bit of walking, not far, but off Main Street, we found Dish on Market.  YUM!  God’s hand was totally in this, because we all found something we loved to eat AND they had some of the best fried dill pickles we’ve ever eaten.  I highly recommend this place if you are ever in Louisville.  Their menu is amazing, diverse, child-friendly and cost-wise: perfect for what we had hoped.

The Louisville Slugger Museum was SO AMAZING.  Otto and I loved it, from the beginning to the end – the tour and museum…  **HEAVEN**  Other than Cooperstown, I don’t know if there is another place Otto and I wanted to visit quite so much.  Getting to hold Mickey Mantle’s bat was my favorite part!

After heading back to the hotel and checking out, we headed back home – arriving a little after midnight.  Everyone headed straight to bed, no time (or energy) to update the blog.  Then, this morning, I was awaken by little giggles at 6 am.  I leaned out of the bedroom door to this sight:

Giggling Caterpillars!

B10 and CW playing in the living room, with GO so close to CW that she was practically sitting on his lap.  I have missed that sound.  🙂

    So happy you’re home, CW! Everything contained a gaping, heart-shaped hole while you were away. I love you! 😉

    Ah, interesting you should have picked Stan Musial’s ‘base’ to photograph — he was Granddaddy Mc’s favorite player of all time. Many happy memories of watching television when I was CW’s age and listening to Dizzy Dean and PeeWee Reese and learning all about baseball …
