Review of the Sprayground at Robsion Park in Louisville, KY

 photo 20170526_160928_zpsxgf15p8g.jpg
I was so excited when I found out that there was a new sprayground opening in Louisville. Where we live, we are about halfway between the one at Mary T. Meagher and the one at the Marshall playground in the Parklands, both of which are great, but not the most convenient for us. We couldn’t wait to try out the one in Lyndon at Robsion Park!

Overall, we really like the sprayground. There are a variety of areas for little to big kids. There are even movable pieces for children to manipulate and make it ever more fun! My son loved the small areas that allowed him to not be intimidated and my daughter loved the large frog at the other end. There are restrooms pretty close to the sprayground. They are the typical park restrooms and are in good condition and were clean when we were there.

Review of Big Mike's Shaved Ice in the Highlands of Louisville, KY

 photo 20170515_152517_zpsikpfdhe6.jpgThe temperature on the afternoon of the 15th was almost 90-degrees, and the kids and I were in hot pursuit of some instant cooling, after-school treat relief. Thankfully, right in the heart of the Highlands sits a very small, yellow “shed” of sorts – Big Mike’s Shaved Ice.

We pulled into the adjacent parking lot of the hair salon in front of which Big Mike’s is located. We were quickly intrigued by the cute little shaved ice stand and the few tables and chairs, which sit on the lawn just to the side. At the “window” to place our order, Big Mike himself was there, as the only employee, to serve us. Big Mike is a college student who only opens his Shaved Ice stand from May through to early August, when he then has to return back to school for the fall.

A Day with Dad in Clarksville, IN

 photo e6d8ace8-8296-4530-9231-df3cc9c9ee20_zpsrbgjjvgf.jpgAs a father of two children (7 &5), there is nothing more enjoyable for me than a weekend with no plans. If your family is anything like mine, weekends usually fill up fast due to work, family gatherings, or other obligations that always seem to come up. That’s why a free weekend with no plans can sometimes feel like winning the lottery.

The next time you find yourself lucky enough to have a free day, try something new and pay visit to Clarksville, Indiana. You can start the day with breakfast at William's Bakery located at 1051 N. Clark Blvd. They have donuts, turnovers, danishes and more. Several booths are available if you want to eat inside, or you can take it to go.

Top Ten things for families to do when they are new to Louisville

 photo new to louisville_zpseevh5ikw.png

Moving to a new city is exciting and daunting! We both did it with small kids and found the best way to make friends and learn about our new home was to go out and explore. Here is our list of 10 places to go see/visit/spend time as when you move to Louisville....there's many more, but we picked some favorites.

PhotobucketLouisville Zoo- Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Lots of animals to see at the local zoo. A nice place to bring a picnic and see some wild animals.....and two playgrounds. Plus, they keep adding exhibits and experiences.

Libraries- Your local library is a great place for FREE events and to meet others with kids the same age as yours. They host countless events for adults and kids, how-to workshops and have an awesome summer reading program.

Review of Cocoberry Pops in Louisville, KY

 photo IMG_2129_zpsnfdozemi.jpgMy family has been patiently watching and waiting for Cocoberry Pops to open on the corner of Southern Parkway and Woodlawn Ave in the South end and we are excited to say it is now open and ready for business! Cocoberry Pops’ goal is simple: to make delicious and healthy pops like they were meant to be, from real ingredients and local, organic fruits.

Road Trip to the ShrinersFest Air Show in Evansville, IN

 photo IMG_7917_zpsxkoaucl2.jpgLast summer, my family and I headed on a road trip to Evansville, Indiana to see the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron perform at the Evansville ShrinersFest Air Show! It was amazing, and we really discovered there is a ton of stuff to do in Evansville.

We left Louisville in the early morning and quickly realized that Evansville was a bit further of a drive than we originally thought. It takes about 2 hours of to arrive there. Our main goal for that day was to watch the exhilarating air show, and we were not disappointed in the least! My husband loves fighter jets, and our four-year-old had become obsessed with the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels that summer, so it was the perfect opportunity to check them out.

 photo IMG_7937_zps62jrvf7r.jpgIn addition to the airshow (organized by the Hadi Shriners), the summer festival also features a WWII reenactment, a water show, live music with a patriotic tribute to the country's veterans by a philharmonic, air dogs making a huge splash in a water show, nightly concerts, carnival rides and more. This huge summer festival spans two days and is located in the heart of downtown Evansville. It's completely family-friendly and affordable. Admission is $10 (at the gate) for adults and children 12 and under enter for FREE! You can buy admission buttons online in advance for $7. Once you buy a button for the show, you can enter for all five days to the festival. It makes a great combination for spending two or three days in Evansville and checking out some other things to do with your family.
