Hidden Hollow Orchard

 photo Hidden Hollow Orchard_zpsufmysfpp.png

 photo eli holding apple_zpsxq64fzju.jpgIt's apple picking time and lucky for us, Hidden Hollow Orchard is just a short drive outside of Oldham County! Per their website, they hope to be open for picking on 8-18-18 this year!

This small apple orchard offers families an opportunity to experience true apple picking together.  It is located just off of Old Henry Road in East Louisville.  There are specific directions on the website for visitors to follow and a phone number in case you get lost.  Directions can get tricky and you might feel like you're lost, but trust the one lane road that runs along the Fox Run neighborhood-you'll get to the Orchard, promise. 

Once you arrive at the Orchard, find a spot to park along the gravel road and bushes.  You will find the prices listed near an umbrella table, along with plastic bags to use, maybe an apple picker tool and some honey for sale. 

Pick an open, mowed path and you will run into the rows of apple trees.  The grass can be thick and tall, so old shoes or even rain boots are perfect for the orchard.  Some of the grass near the base of the trees is tall also, so if your skin is sensitive to grass and weeds, pants or tall socks are recommended.  Bring some buckets along with you or even a wagon for hauling your apples through the Orchard. 

 photo horse_zpsyuzhmuph.jpgIn years past, the rows of trees were marked with apple variety signs.  We did not see any on our visit, but did manage to pick 3-4 different apple varieties.  If you pick a slightly bruised or blemished apple, use it to have a taste test.

Pack some carrots for feeding several ponies and bring cash (preferable small bills).  Apples are 35¢ each or u-pick bags for $5 or $7.  If you want to stay a little longer, there is a picnic table and areas for a picnic blanket.  There are a couple of tractors for children to explore, too.

Hidden Hollow Orchard is located at 3200 Apple Hill Road Louisville, KY 40245

Duke Energy Children's Museum in Cincinnati

This is a partially sponsored post. We were given admission for the purpose of review. 

 photo Facebook pic_zpsekmhhdap.jpg

The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is currently undergoing renovations, but the Duke Energy's Children's Museum section is now back open!  The drive from Oldham County is a little over an hour and easily accessed off of the interstate.

Admission to the museum is reasonable: Adults are $10.50, Children ages 3-12 are $8.50 and Children ages 1 & 2 are $5.50.  We found the museum is best suited for children ages 8 and under.  There are a few exhibits that were appropriate for children older than 8, but the majority of exhibits will appeal to younger children.  There will be plenty more options for older children, once all of the renovations are completed at Union Terminal.

Duke Energy Children Museum has several areas for exploring, hands-on learning, creating and imaginative play.  The Woods is a great area for all ages to climb, slide, walk across a rope bridge, find their way through a maze, crawl in a tunnel to see river creatures up close and personal and much more.  Close by is a large water table play area.  Across the museum is a large space designed for children to explore different careers and adult roles.  In Kids' Town, children can do things such as shop at Kroger, serve at a diner, run their own lemonade stand or care for animals at the local vet office.  This area merges into another area where children build using legos, big blue blocks and play with construction machinery.  Because the areas are so close together, some of the play items are scattered and disorganized.  The children were all still having fun, but we did find that some areas in Kids' Town were depleted of the items and we had to skip them.

image description image description image description

If your children want a break from running around, there is a KidSPACE for creative play through STEAM activities.  The museum plans workshops or children can choose their own project.  Make sure you allow yourself time to visit this space because supplies might run low closer to closing time.  There is also a smaller area at the museum for preschool children to work on planned projects at smaller tables and lead by helpers.

The crowd at the museum is significantly more manageable after 2pm.  If you have younger children that may be overwhelmed, Little Sprouts Farm is specifically for children 4 and younger.  It offers a great space for littles to run and explore without the older kids.  Another low-key area is near The Woods where snakes, frogs, fish and other creatures are on display. Children can also explore fossils and other exhibits in this area.

Families can also take a break just outside the children's area at several cafeteria tables.  There is a small stand selling food, light snacks and drinks, but we saw several families with their own outside food. There are also dining options close to the center in downtown Cincinnati if you want to leave and come back.

The Children's Museum has special exhibits throughout the year.  For an extra charge families can experience more hands-on and explorative play at these exhibits.  Check their website to see what is scheduled during your visit.

Plan a trip to Cincinnati for a fun day at Union Terminal.  Break up your museum visit and plan a lunch at a unique restaurant in downtown Cincinnati or pack a picnic to share at a nearby park.  Washington Park is near the museum center and has interactive fountains for the children to enjoy.  The Museum Center is open seven days a week and there is a small discount for purchasing your tickets online and printing them at home.

Quads Rod & Custom Car Show in LaGrange

 photo Quads Rod amp Custom Car Show 2_zpsqqlhxak3.png

If you're looking for a low-key, fun activity to do with your family in the warmer months, then you should check out the Quads Rod & Custom Car Show in Downtown LaGrange.  The car show is set up every 4th Saturday of the month, beginning in May and going through September and is FREE.

image description image description
My son loves cars and learning about them, so this car show is perfect for him to experience many makes and models.  The cars are set up along Main and 2nd Streets in Downtown LaGrange and the streets are closed to traffic.  The car owners love to share about their passion for their collector car and my kids love to hear about them.  Their many questions are answered and they learn new interesting facts about restoration and the development of the car.  They love to hear the year of the cars and compare the difference between the collector car and the present day car.  My husband and I also love to hear the many stories associated with the cars.  Some car owners have cards for children to take with them or will allow children to sit in the car for a picture. 

Many different cars, hot rods, trucks, custom cars, jeeps and more are set up for the shows.  Along with the cars, the car show has a 50/50 drawing, music, door prizes and dining along Main Street.  The shows are 5-9pm and are a great way for families to develop or nurture an interest in cars or the hobby while also learning a little history about the different makes and models.

Resin Jewelry Class at Cailin Art Studio

This is a partially sponsored post. We were given admission for the purpose of review.

 photo Resin Jewelry Class 1_zpsc913e29q.png 

Ladies, grab a friend, your mom or your daughter (18 and over) and get creative at Cailin Art Studio in Crestwood. This community art studio hosts Girls Night Out, and one of the classes is creating resin jewelry.

 photo using tools_zpsgkp6qich.jpgA few ladies and I had the opportunity to check out the class for ourselves.  I was hesitant to try the class because I had no idea what to expect.  I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding it was to sit with other ladies, create, share stories and see our final pieces.

We were all in similar boats of not knowing how to even start the project, but there was plenty of encouragement around the work table.  Our instructor, Ivy Clinton, gave us easy to follow directions and broke up the project in manageable steps.  She provided examples of finished pendants and earrings for us to see before we started.  As we picked our backgrounds for our pendants and earrings, the project started forming.

All of the supplies and tools were provided for us, but your resin jewelry can include personal mementos if you choose.  Ivy explained that she has seen locks of hair included, special messages, birth stones, photos and more.

 photo e6af78e8-466b-4ecd-bb3a-ff941cdf256a_zpskzbtxdya.jpgOnce we were finished layering our materials in our pendant and earrings, we then poured the resin.  It was neat to learn about this process.  Creating the perfect dome above the materials required a little finesse, but nothing too difficult.  It takes about 24 hours for the resin to set so you will have to plan to pick up your pieces the next day or so.

The cost for the class is around $45. The studio invites you to bring in your own beverages and snacks if you want.  If you are looking for a unique night out with friends or an opportunity to create a special gift for someone, definitely check out the resin jewelry class at Cailin Art Studio.  You will leave with beautiful jewelry and a sense of pride in your creation.

Keep up with events & register for classes - follow Cailin Art Studio on Facebook here.
Cailin Art Studio is located at 7910 Floydsburg Road in Crestwood.

Oldham County Day!

 photo Oldham County Day 2017 header_zpsuphzqke4.png
 photo police_zpsmbdamkck.jpgOldham County Day is always celebrated the 3rd Saturday in July in Downtown LaGrange.  The 2018 date is July 21st.
  • Watch the parade in Downtown LaGrange near the Courthouse Square on Saturday morning.  The parade route usually begins near LaGrange Elementary School on West Jefferson Street, takes a right on Walnut Street and then a right down Main Street to end at Main & 5th Avenue near the elementary school again.  The parade usually starts around 9:30am.  Make sure you arrive early to find a great spot to watch the parade!  Anticipate seeing the Grand Marshall, local school marching bands, tractors, horses, fire trucks, church, local business and other group floats that match the parade's theme for the year.  Kids are also invited to decorate their bikes and ride in the parade!
 photo living statues_zpskqzjxx2f.jpgCheck out the over 120 booths on the courthouse square.  Many of the booths feature local businesses and organizations in the Oldham County area.  Meet local politicians, learn more about locally owned businesses, churches, maybe get a freebie or enter a raffle!  Food and drinks are also on the courthouse square.  In the past, a lot of the booths had kid-friendly giveaways (like Dairy Queen ice cream coupons), bounce houses and balloon artists and visitors saw living statues. The Great Train Robbery is at 1pm at the Railroad Museum and more.  It's definitely worth checking out the courthouse square and surrounding attractions after the parade!
There is a lot of entertainment planned before and after the parade.  Listen to music while you're at the festival.  There is a great lineup of various artists.  Head to LaGrange Christian Church for "Pie in the Eye" and children's activities.

Kick off the celebration on Friday night a the City of Lagrange Street Dance.  Food trucks and music 6-10pm at the North 2nd Street Gazebo.

Enjoy a pancake breakfast on Saturday morning at the LaGrange Community Center on Jefferson Street 7-10:30am.  There is a cost for the breakfast.

Arrive early for parking! You can also sometimes find parking along the side streets surrounding the square and some local residents open their property (sometimes for a fee).

 photo train robbery_zps26oubdh5.jpgAnd of course, always check out the other businesses in LaGrange!  A lot of the businesses and restaurants have special hours and activities during Oldham County Day!
Make sure you check the official Oldham County Day website and Facebook page for updates on this special event.  We wanted to allow our readers to have a general idea of what to expect during Oldham County Day, but realize that activities, event times and entertainment acts are subject to change each year.
