Independence Day

Happy Fourth week🇺🇸 We started our celebrations last week with a picnic and a few other fun adventures.   Of course another holiday = more reasons to celebrate!

Grayson and I had a mini picnic  (not sure if lunch on the balcony counts as a picnic but we tried).  I say mini because we simply had fruits and veggies–too hot for anything else!

Basically our picnic was a little like this…

festive attire, lots of munching, and serious faces

and then a little fun trying out the picnic basket (thanks Grant for the fun bday gift).

It was a great {hot} afternoon with Grayson Quinn💙

Our weekend consisted of a trip to Louisville, Kentucky (Friday-Sunday morning) to celebrate a friend’s 30th Birthday. Ending with a quick Sunday trip to Chicago, where we met up with friends from our Cali small group who were in for a wedding!  #lotsofdriving

I wasn’t sure what Louisville had to offer but it ended up being a fun little adventure!! If you ever need a Midwest weekend getaway a few fun things to do here are:

Farmers Market— The fresh Blueberries were on point👌🏼 Grant enjoyed his breakfast sandwich and the weather was 🔥–we were scorching in the sun!

Whiskey Row— Definitely a fun area to take a distillery tour, even if you don’t like whiskey.

Galt House Hotel—  Louisville’s iconic hotel on the river, a place to stay or just walk by for pics!

Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory — A great photo op!

Big 4 Walking Bridge— Great views at night with all of the lights especially for the 4th!

A couple of fun eatery’s– The Sidebar for dinner and Quills for a quick breakfast/coffee.

In the midst of our 4th activities we met sweet Nora and Evelyn Fiechter who are absolutely adorable! (I didn’t even to think to take pictures, but they are precious 💜💜) Congrats Jay & Lynnae on your sweet twins!!

We spent the 4th at the lake!  It was a beautiful day of relaxing in the sun and being on the water.  Another enjoyable time with more friends and family!
