Has it been a month??? Really???

So...I cannot believe that it has been a whole month since my last blog post!  Time flies when you are having fun, I guess.  And fun is what we have had!  The most recent fun was spent in good ole Louisville, KY!  Steven had a lawn care convention to attend, so we headed to the Louisville Zoo...which was wonderful!  Now our zoo, is much prettier, but their's has cooler animals for sure!


















The boys went swimming that night at the hotel!  It was very cold, but I think they still had fun!  They told everyone about it so I guess they at least made some memories!
 
 
 
We had originally planned on going back to the zoo the next day.  I knew we had two days to fill while Steven and his dad were at the expo center so I purposefully split the zoo days in two.  I expected it to be much cooler on Friday and brought the boys sweatshirts and such.  Little did I know though, that it would also rain.  So plans were rearranged!
We decided to all go to the Louisville Slugger Museum.  Once I said we were heading there, Steven and Randy skipped the expo for a few hours and joined in!


 Steven even hit some balls at the batting cage there!  I was surprised to see he still had it in him!  He was sore the next day though!

 It was hard at this point, getting everyone to sit still for a picture.  Even Brooks was fussin!
The boys also got to take a turn in the "Small Ball batting cage".  They loved it! 
 
We also took a tour of how the bats are made.  They gave us each, even little Brooks, our very own mini-slugger.  Which I am sure, will be used just for that...slugging each other. Steven and I call the mini-weapons, not bats! 
 
We then headed to the the Bowling alley!  I did something majorly wrong to my back and honestly could not assist much with this activity.  Bowling was our only option so I decided to let the boys fend for themselves.  Easton did pretty good picking up the ball on his own.  Oh...and they didn't have ramps like we do here.  So...they did it ALL by themselves while I held Brooks and just watched.  I'm glad we made it out with all 10 fingers and 10 toes! 
We made it home in time to join Susie for some good ole Mexican at Casa!  Surprised?  I didn't think so!  You know we love our Mexican food!  Anyways...I got to end the night with a massage!  Mrs. Sonia's (our nanny)  hubby is a massage therapist and met me here at the house at 8:15 on a Friday night to help ease my pain!  It was wonderful!  A great end to a wonderful weekend!
