A Weekend in Louisville, KY

We just returned from an awesome long weekend in Louisville, KY.  We picked the location simply because it was the midway point between where Cass and her family live and where we live.  It worked perfectly and was such a fun trip.  We set out on the 6.5 hour drive early Friday morning (4:30 am).  The boys handled the drive very well for the most part.

We made a stop at Mammoth Caves for a little stretching break.  That was a very good decision as the boys needed to get out of the car by then and it was super fun.  AND, added bonus, the slept the rest of the way to Louisville. =)
