We departed Ohio today and headed for the 10th state on our summer vacation road trip: The Bluegrass state of Kentucky.
Before leaving Cincinnati we had breakfast at an interesting restaurant called Sugar n' Spce which had a kid-fun theme as you can see in my pictures. Along with cartoon characters painted on the wall were rows of small rubber ducks. Not sure of the story behind these other then the waiter says the owner collects them and shares one with each guest, ...
... Racko. Elena was so excited yesterday as she and her best friend in Spain-Carolina, were able to FaceTime. They laughed and caught up for about 2 hours.

We drove to Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. It is right next to the University of Louisville and of course Ron had to wear his MSU shirt, just to rub it in.
Not knowing much about horse racing, this was really a very interesting place to visit. Some of the exhibits were very creative and the track was beautiful. On race day, they get 160,000 spectators. It is just a massive ...
