Vance's parents came to visit this week and we had a great time exploring the South a bit. We headed up to Kentucky, our first Southern road trip. It only took 3 years of living in the South to explore the areas within driving distance of Nashville!
|Louisville, KY - along the Ohio River|
We had a very nice visit to Mammoth National Park, Abraham Lincoln's birthplace and museum and then Louisville. Highlights include mint juleps, Louisville Slugger Museum, hot brown & obviously, bourbon.
Louisville Slugger Museum - fun spot!
We had hot brown, a Kentucky classic, at the Brown Hotel.
