I Did Get to Go On My Birthday Trip!

My last blog entry was about how I wasn’t sure if I would be able to go on my birthday trip or not due to recent health issues. I did get to go and I’m so glad I did! We went to Louisville, KY to see the Jackolantern Spectacular, and it was awesome!

Normally the Spectacular is walk through, but because of covid, it has to be drive-thru this year, which sucks because there is a LONG wait to get to see it. About 1-2.5 hours on average, but it was worth the wait. It is hard to get good pics of everything when you are only driving through, but here are my fave pics from the event:

The hotel room we stayed in gave us a great view of a theme park that was shut down for the season, a bit of creepiness in its own right with the unmoving rides and the empty parking lots and walkways .

We also visited a botanical gardens park:

and even played dress-up with some vintage-style hats:

It was a great time, and much needed! But now I’m exhausted and sore lol.

  1. It’s so fab you got to go – the payback will be worth it hopefully! Those lanterns are absolutely incredible! I imagine the botanical gardens were lovely to have a mooch around, get some fresh air and disconnect for a while.xx
