I wish my home state rhymed with something cool.
Anywaaaayyyyys….the best part about this trip was that we got to see so many friends. Most of our friends have abandoned us to move back home, or away for jobs, or possibly to get away from this Missouri humidity.
We miss them, way too much. So we figured this is a great time to go see them all.
Our first stop was in Kentucky.
One of T’s best friends, Greg, calls Louisville home. They met while Greg was going to school in St. Louis, and became the three best friends that anyone can have….minus one.
We totally understand why he boot scooted back home…because Louisville is incredible!
There was a beautiful river with lots of gorgeous bridges.
I know boys don’t talk about stuff like this….but Tim was a ball of excitement to see his buddy. They had not seen each other for years, which I fully intend to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Hi Greg….can’t wait for the Derby!!!
Apparently, when I was in this state of mind….
I realized that Louisville was the home of the Kentucky Derby. It must have been all the horse statues, paintings, signs, and memorabilia. I also decided at that time that we absolutely, positively NEED to go next year. The boys thought that was just a drinkity pipe dream….but I remembered.
I never forget guys, and I am holding you all to it.
I already have my big, floppy hat picked out!
How did I get to that drinkity state you ask……Fourth Street.
Please don’t notice the bed and pillow reflection…this was taken from our hotel room.
It is a street in downtown Louisville, KY that is like a mall of restaurants, bars, and fun. Since we were there on a Wednesday it was pretty low-key….which is just our scene.
So we explored, and had some dinner and drinks.
The handsome guy on the left is Timbo, yours truly, then Greg’s twin brother Mitch, and then Greg himself.
Here we are proving how awesome we are….our waiter was impressed to say the least.
No one was prepared when after the customary documentation photo I yelped, “No one move….it’s time for a funny face”. Well, no one except Greg…is that not the best zombie impression you’ve ever seen? I’m taking notes Gregory!
Here is a terrible video….where I thought Greg was still sitting in front of me. Instead, he was sneaking off to pay the dinner bill that we had in our hand…you tricky trickster. But it does give you a sneak peak of the awesomeness that is Fourth Street action.
Things to ignore:
The awful buzzing sound
Tim ignoring his loving girlfriend
My slightly intoxicated giggle
I really wish we would have had more time there….but we will make up for it come Derby Days.
See you soon Louisville!
