I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

What-To-Do Wednesday - Virtual Visits - Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory

If you want to get your dose of culture while being stuck inside, many museums and other attractions offer a variety of virtual exhibits. This is an especially great time to explore museums and attractions that are outside of your area and maybe even outside of your country that you ordinarily would not be able to get to because of time and/or money constraints. We will doing so as well and  we will be sharing one or more of our virtual visits in today's and future What-To-Do Wednesday posts

What: Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory

Where: 800 W. Main 
             Louisville, KY

Louisville Slugger began in 1864 as a woodworking shop known as J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning.  The company eventually began making bats for young Bud Hillerirch and his friends and later began making bats for professional baseball players. Over the years, numerous baseball players have all had their bats made by the company including Hall-of-Famers like Honus Wagner, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams and Derek Jeter. The current Louisville Slugger  Factory and Museum opened in 1996 and was renovated in 2008.
