Go Fruit Picking

The reason that we made the trip down to Southern Indiana in the first place was to visit Huber Orchard & Winery. Phillip had been there when he worked for the Department of Agriculture, and he has been talking about making the trip back down ever since. They have a great selection of U-pick-it fruits & veggies, including grapes, blackberries, raspberries, apples, tomatoes & peppers. We picked apples, took a tour of the wine cellars, tasted a few wines, and visited the great market that they have. We left with the car loaded down with apples, wine and other goodies that we can't wait to try!

Drink a Mint Julep

While we were in the home of the Derby, I thought that I had to check this Kentucky task off my list!

Go to a Cultural Festival

While we were in Southern Indiana/Louisville this weekend, I checked three tasks off in one day! Just outside of our hotel, Worldfest Louisville was taking place. Worldfest was a celebration of the diversity of Louisville, and it centers around a very large naturalization ceremony for new US citizens. We stopped by after dinner to grab a few snacks (sno cones & cotton candy!)
