Louisville happened!

So, as most of you know by now, Caleb's 25th birthday was this past Saturday. I can't let a birthday this big go to waste! So, I took off Friday and had a whole weekend of surprises planned for him.

I booked us a hotel in Louisville and we hit the road around 2 after exploring more of our own city a bit.


After a few CD's later, and even some talk radio...we arrived.
We had quite a bit of time before dinner, so we hit the shopping malls. Not before taking some fun selfies first.



After a fun few hours of shopping, we headed back to get ready for 4th Street Live! Our hotel was within walking distance, but man was it chilly!
Luckily, Caleb put his shoes on after this shot ;) 


It was a blast, there was a couple live bands out and our dinner was amazing. I highly recommend it!

Saturday morning was time for the Louisville Slugger Museum. Caleb was like a small kid in a candy store. It was awesome to watch him. Not only does he love baseball, but dude loves history, too.



Part of the museum is getting to hold ACTUAL game used bats by some of baseballs greatest.








Who did it best? I think I stole it from the birthday boy, sorry babe!


It was seriously creeping getting up close with these wax models.

We had a blast taking the tour, too. & you know we had to get a photo inside the "dugout"!



This city was beautiful. It is so alive and the architecture was just amazing.

After the museum we grabbed lunch at a cool pub, and headed home. Little did Caleb know I had another surprise waiting for him there!

I'll show you the rest of his awesome birthday weekend tomorrow.
Happy Wednesday, folks!

Linking up with the super sweet Shanna!

  6. Awww, I'm so jealous that you went to the museum... I've only been to Louisville once and it was on business so I didn't get a chance to go! Luckily, business DID include 4th Street Live... so fun!

  10. Well I am glad that you enjoyed the visit to our great City. I have lived in Louisville for over 35 years and it is home. I have to admit though that I have never been inside the museum but used to work next door to it. Next time you should come in May when we have the Derby. You talking about a party and people...OMG this place is insane with celebrities when it comes to the Derby.

  15. I love these pictures and I surprisingly love Louisville! Fourth Street Live is so much fun (I especially love Howl at the Moon)! I've never been inside the Slugger Museum, but I have a bat. I'd love to see that Votto one in person! Oddly enough, I was in Louisville on Sunday! I had dinner on Bardstown Road, which is the coolest little, hipster part of the town. Small world!
