Louisville Slugger Factory & Museum

Brad, one of Darren's friends from KC, came to visit last weekend for the Eddie Vedder concert here on Thursday night. We had a great time with him while he was here. He was a trooper and endured Friday with me and the boys while Darren worked - surviving Brice's fits and all. We enjoyed a great show at the Bluebird on Friday night...if you're ever in Nashville, I highly recommend a show here...but, make sure you get your tickets as soon as you can (they are only available a week before the show, and the sell out quick!).

On Saturday, Brad and Darren took Brice on a roadtrip to Louisville to visit the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum. You know - the famous Louisville Slugger bats? They make them here! Being the baseball fans that they are (Brad, we don't hold it against you that you are a Red Sox fan), this was at the top of their list of things to do. So, they took the 3.5 hour trip north. Oh yeah, and Brad got to check Kentucky off of his "States to visit" list.

On their way there, they stopped off at Chaney's Dairy Barn for some lunch and ice cream.

Rider and I stayed home (and enjoyed a rather relaxing day, I might add), but they were reminded of me anyway. This brand of popcorn shares my name...all the way down to the spelling! Crazy, huh?

Brad, Darren and Brice on the big glove scuplture...which also doubled as Brice's playground for a little while.

And of course, Brice had so much fun that he crashed on the way home. I know he had a great time!

Thanks for visiting Brad! We thoroughly enjoyed your company! Oh, and Brad also has a blog...check it out...he's a pretty funny guy!

  2. Thanks again for having me! My trip to Tennesee/Kentucky was very 'Kuhl'. Love how Brice passed out in the back seat with that gigantic drink in his hands and food crumbs all over himself - reminds me of some road trips I took back in college!

  3. Becki, nice work on all the links!! You are getting pretty good at this blogging stuff. By the way Brice's hands look huge in the sleeping pic, and I love his toothy, cheesy grin!! Too cute!

  4. looks like a blast! We will have to try to go there sometime.
