Our day included several stops. We stumbled upon the Lincoln Boyhood Memorial Park on our drive through Indiana. We browsed the museum that honored Lincoln's boyhood to his early 20's. Our next stop was Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum. We had a tour of the grounds, saw a video about the race and enjoyed the museum that focused on the …
... had set up huge speakers so that when the runners reached the race track, we heard the sounds of an announcer from a past Derby! Super cool!
Once I finished the race (and yes, it poured rain the entire time), we went for lunch. All in all, a great weekend and a fun race.

... Krogers and Loews at least for 4-5 days. It has taken forever to get stocked up on everything and I am so sick of those stores that we are boycotting them for a while!
Tomorrow we are heading to Florida and not sure where we will stop along the way. We are just playing "being retired" without a real plan for the next 3 days. If we find anything exciting we will post it here.
