We went out to Keenland to watch the houses "train". It was so fun to be back at Keenland and this time it was basically empty. We walked right up to the track and watched the horses run. After watching and exploring a bit, we walked down to the track kitchen . On our way down there we got to see the horses being walked and groomed. A few of the caretakers came over to the fence so we could pet and see the horses up close. Lillie loved it and so did all of us! We will be be doing this again and next time we'll head to watch the horses earlier. They're such amazing creatures!
We did a lot of driving around in horse country and just seeing the sights. In this moment, Lillie was very fussy and we were trying to drive home. Lee and Melanie tried "fake sleeping" to entice her to close her own eyes. Obviously it didn't work, but it was pretty funny!
On Saturday after nap time, we headed out to Crank and Boom Ice Cream. Our neighbor has been an awesome supplier for all of our ice cream needs. We went out there and all got a scoop. It is delicious and is on our must list for people who come to town. Richard LOVES the strawberry and I have yet to find a flavor that I don't like. Melanie got the Caramel and I think really enjoyed it.
Melanie got the bath time routine down pat while she was here! Lillie LOVES bath time and when she's ready to start the wind down process she will even walk over to the bathroom door. That is our clue that she's ready for bath time. and ultimately bed time. She and Melanie had fun and Melanie even brought her a new duck toy for the occasion!
We had a lot of fun showing Richard's parents around our new city. We appreciate their willingness to be our first victims/ house guests. We are falling more in love with our fun new city. We cannot wait to explore and learn about all that Lexington has to offer! We are looking forward to more visitors, learning more about horses, maybe kind of start liking bourbon and learn to love everything UK. Come help us explore!
