Is it morbid to take kids to a cemetery on spring break? I think not if it’s the most beautiful cemetery ever…Cave Hill in Louisville, KY.  There is something about thinking about death and seeing spring during Holy Week too- the resurrection is such good news! The bottom picture shows a whole section for Confederate soldiers. Eerie to see so many graves marked with the same few year time period.

Back down to the river front to a fun park and to walk along the river. Silas had a meltdown immediately after we took that picture- he got a stick in the eye and then was in obvious need of a nap. We settled down with our books under this gorgeous tree and…

We spent our last morning in this pretty Old Louisville historic district with incredibly detailed old houses, wide streets, fountains. Eliza with a giant woodcarving of a lamplighter.
