Vacation Day 14

Friday   June 28, 2013

This morning our first order of business was a tour of Old Kentucky Chocolates. Time spent in a chocolate kitchen is a great start to the day. It was neat to see the machines and processes that they use, and to learn that they still do a whole lot of their work by hand. Then we shopped in the store and of course made a few purchases.

Once we were done there we headed on to Louisville, Kentucky. There we visited the Louisville Slugger Museum. It's a really nice place. There is a movie to be seen, a Lego room with some really impressive Lego art, and the factory. The factory tour was informative and a lot of fun. You get to see the whole process for bats they make and the different ways that they are made.

Just around the corner from the museum we saw this impressive car. If you can't tell, the whole thing is covered with red glass beads.

Before we left town we decided to walk down the to eat at Joe's Crab Shack which is on the water's edge. It makes for a lovely view and we had a great lunch.

We really didn't have anything else planned for the day so we decided to just get in the car and keep driving. I had planned to spend the night in Nashville, TN, but had trouble finding a hotel. We finally decided to stop in a small town on the state line. And since it was still early enough in the evening, the kids had plenty of time to enjoy the pool for awhile.

Oh, and I almost forgot our stop in Bowling Green, KY, at the Corvette Museum. The girls and I decided to wait in the car, but the boys went in to drool over the cars for a bit. They didn't have time to tour the museum, but there had been a big event going on that day so they got to sit in the newest model Corvette. They were in heaven!!
