A little weekend getaway

Sometimes you just need to get away from the everyday routine. Even if it is for just one night. Our plan was to leave after Holden soccer game on Saturday. But as the rains set in on Friday night I had a feeling the game would be cancelled and I was right. So we loaded up the car and headed back to Lexington, Kentucky. I know we just came back from visiting Kentucky but we still had a couple of sights we wanted to get back and see. And what better time then now. Our first stop was the capital, Frankfort. Just look at the view of the capital building downtown! Beautiful! Then it was off to Buffalo Trace Distillery. I know what you are thinking, "Another distillery" Jeez! But this particular one we read was extremely kid friendly, they have their own playground and on Saturday they were having their annual Easter Egg Hunt. So the boys loaded up on Easter cookies and had a blast. Not only were the grounds beautiful with several gardens, wishing wells, a fire house, cafe, but supposedly they are the oldest distillery in Kentucky. Tons of history and beauty. We really enjoyed walking around the grounds and as Holden would say "adventuring"! I just love this picture of the "3 boys" enjoying their root beer after our tour.I forgot to mention, they brew their own root beer too. All we needed was some vanilla ice cream and we could call it a day! HA! Holden and Rylan love staying at a hotel. Not only do we get to have a family slumber party but they always get to go swimming. Yes, I think this was the highlight of the day. The pool! Go figure!
