Our 2007 Christmas card featured two of our favorite destinations...Louisville, Kentucky and San Francisco, California.
A visit to the Louisville Slugger Museum was the highlight of our trip to Louisville. If you have visited the museum, you've probably viewed the wall where they feature the players who had contracts with them. I remembered my dad telling us about his bat contract so I started looking through all the names during the time frame he played. I was thrilled when I found his signature. It was a very emotional moment for me. I was able to order bats for my brother and me that matched the specifications of the bats my dad used and had his familiar signature on them.
Our trip to San Francisco was part of a trip we took to California to follow the Tour of California, a professional bicycle race. We followed stages from Sausalito to Long Beach. One of our favorite cities we visited was Solvang. We had so much fun that we returned in 2009 and followed stages from Clovis to Escondido.(I tried to attach a picture of us with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, but it was too dark when attached. Can anyone tell me why this might happen? It also happened when I attached pictures from our 2010 Christmas card).
