That One Time We Went On a Impromptu Labor Day Roadtrip And Forgot To Charge The Camera....

 hence the weird mix of phone and dslr pics (:
We are so enjoying this season of independence and being
able to do crazy impromptu trips like this one.
As we were talking about random things Saturday night
we realized we had 2 days off and hadn't seen one of our good friends
(he helped us move here in the middle of winter, 
so actually he's a really REALLY good friend ;))
in almost 3 years, so hey lets take this time off and go to Louisville and see him!

We had such fun (:

It was so delightful and encouraging to catch up 
and find that we were learning/going through some of 
the exact same things, just different circumstances.
To laugh about old stories (some of them new to me)
and make some new funny memories,
like losing Blake's car in the middle of downtown and
spending an hour in the sweltering heat searching for it.
It wasn't so funny in the moment (we all had blisters and were quite sweaty :P),
but in the evening we were crying we were laughing so hard about it.

 We ate so much yummy food too!
Some of the best chinese we've ever had,
sushi, fudge (the boys said it was AMAZING),
and we ate at one of those grilled cheese and soup places popping up everywhere. 
Their vegan cheese was reeeeally good!
And of course we had some local coffee (:

It makes me sad that the camera was dead,
because Louisville is just beautiful
and I would have enjoyed capturing more of it
for memories sake.
Especially the bridge they transformed into a walkway from
Kentucky to Ohio.
Have you heard about it? Its so cool! 
We walked on it in the evening after eating
and it was just breathtaking.
I took some pics on my phone but you'll have
to squint really hard to see much of anything...
I kinda of want to go back just to 
go on it again.

I am so grateful for old friends
and roadtrips (:


P.S. pics of the bridge

  1. Ah! So frustrating that the the timing just did NOT work out for us to see y'all on this visit. But maybe we can try again and go on the walking bridge with lots of light and fully charged cameras?
