Road trip to Kentucky

My good friend Becca and her kids were in Louisville, KY visiting her family and invited the girls and I to visit for a few days.  Since Louisville is only 2 1/2 hours away from us of course I said yes.  We packed up the van and the girls and I took a little road trip for a few days (Andrew would have come but we went during the week and he had to work).  Anyway, we had a fantastic time visiting, catching up, and keeping the kids busy with lots of activities including swimming, a trip to the bounce house/gym, The Children's museum, and an ice cream outing.  Olivia LOVED Becca's daughter Hailey who is 15 months old, and Abby and Wes hit it off right away chatting away in the back seat of the van whenever we went anywhere!  We had such a good time and its always fun getting together with Becca, I really wished we lived closer....someday maybe!!!

Olivia liked the horses from afar, but wanted me to hold her when she got a little closer.

We had plans to go to the Louisville Zoo but changed our minds when we woke up to 100+ degree temps and very high humidity.  We instead opted for the Children's Museum and the kids had a great time and we were all able to stay nice and cool!

This was the poop demonstration, Wes was a bit intrigued by this display!

The little mailman, so cute!

We had the chance to get up close and meet Elmo.

Abby and Wes loved Elmo, Olivia and Hailey only like him from afar!

I thought Wes was going to give himself a hernia trying to blow up this balloon!

Watch out! Olivia is behind the wheel!!

Looking at the bubbles

** I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of baby Hailey or of Becca and I.  Oops!!!!**
