Spring Break: Part III Mint Julips, Walking Downtown, the Kentucky Show and the Science Center

We made sure to have a Mint Julip while we were there!  We tried at Churchill Downs but their cafe had already closed.  So we found a restaraunt along our walk between museums.  I'm not a bourbon girl but this drink was delicious!

Throughout the town you can find painted horses.  We only found a few but that would be a fun scavenger hunt with more time.

Art work in the Kentucky Show atrium.  The Kentucky Show is a 30 minute movie about the highlights of Kentucky.  We went after lunch (after our Mint Julip).  Maura got a headache and I think I nodded off a few times, thankfully it was only 30 minutes.

Trolly ride to the candy shop!

There was this cute pizza place along the way that had these hedge couches to lounge on.  

Also ping pong made out of car parts.

Art to pose by on our walk from museum to museum.

More lovely art to admire on our walk.

A set of the first hair curlers, wha?! For real!

We had a great trip.  The drive back was a bit windy.  We had the second half on Number the Stars to listen to which kept the minds entertained other than by a screen :)  I feel really blessed to have such great family to create such fun memories for the kids!

  1. Maura is such a ham for pictures.

    I love when you take those pictures of reflections in public art - you did that in Chicago also.

    Super fun trip!
