On Vacation

Ok - maybe not a real vacation. I'm vacationing in downtown Louisville. (for those of you who don't know - that's about 30 miles from our house)

Jay goes to various conferences throughout the summer. I usually go to one of them with him and we turn it into a mini-vacation.

One year we went to San Francisco and then rented a car, drove to Reno through wine country and spent a few days in Reno/Lake Tahoe. One year it was in Little Rock. We just drove there and saw parts of the country between Kentucky and Arkansas. Last year, we went to a conference in Mobile, and then drove to Biloxi and spent a long weekend. (this was about 3 weeks before Hurricane Katrina - the entire area where we stayed was leveled)

This year, the conference is in Louisville. We are staying downtown. I decided I'd rather do that than have to drive to home and back each day. Monday and Tuesday I'll get to sleep in and then just walk to work. It's a little weird to be "on vacation" in your home town, but so far so good.

I tell you - I haven't been to lots of these conferences, but the Kentucky folks have done a great job. This is an amazing conference, the next year's hosts will have a hard time toping this.

No updates this past week. Alex should be going in for his 3 month appointment this week. Hopefully we will get some pictures.
