Did you see the weather forecast? It's going to be a warm weekend!  Let's all get outside!

Spending your afternoon at a new-to-you park.  Have you been to Turkey Run or Broad Run in the Parklands? These two areas are the newer parts of The Parklands and they have spots for amazing views from atop the yellow silo or at the crest of a hill.  There are bridges to cross, paths to follow and parks for playing.  Sounds perfect!

Review of Floral Grind Florist and Coffeehouse

 photo IMG_1472_zpsuetdg5xt.jpgAfter hearing a lot of positive reviews from fellow parents and teachers at my son’s school we decided to check out Floral Grind Florist and Coffeehouse over the Holiday break. It was a slow day for them and we were the only customers there at first. We spent some time browsing through all the fun decorations, knick knacks, jewelry, and scarves that were on display/for sale before making our way to the menu wall. We arrived around Noon but were told that both breakfast and lunch items were available.

My six year old decided on a ham and cheese sandwich and I tried a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant, both as box lunches. My Mom decided on soup and a ½ sandwich. The box lunches came with a full sandwich, side (today’s options included potato salad or white chili), chips, and a cookie. We had a lot of food and we were all stuffed by the time we were done. Their menu changes at times (mostly their soups and sides) and can be found on their Facebook page.

Review of Hi-Five Doughnuts in Louisville, KY

 photo 20170115_125704_zpsczfvobnj.jpgJust pulling up to Hi-Five Doughnuts, in Butchertown’s Butcherblock, you’re immediately greeted by the bright yellow, inviting storefront. Be prepared to wait in line at least a few minutes. We thoughtfully picked, what I had assumed to be an "off" time of day, Sunday at about 12:30, but we still had a wait time of around 5 minutes. The line was to the front door of the small store, and never went down the entire time we were there– people just kept coming! Apparently, we weren’t the only ones in town excited to see that owners Annie Harlow and Leslie Wilson, better known as the Ladies of The Morning, added on to their doughnut food truck business by opening a store!

While in line, I suggest having another member of you party attempt to nab one of about 10 seats in the place if you plan on dining inside. There are 4 or 5 bar-stool style chairs along the back wall, and another 4 or 5 around a table at the front of the store (along with one cute wooden highchair).
