Grand Adventure

Tebow, Benty and Ollie are off on another grand adventure. Yesterday, they got instructed on the making of Bourbon. We were in Frankfort, Kentucky and did a tour at Buffalo Trace Distillery. The boys were allowed on all parts of the tour except for the labeling room. They were even allowed in the tasting room! They got a compliment from the tour guide who said they behaved better than most kids. I'm so glad they are such good travelers. The bourbon tour was fascinating . We have wineries and a ton of micro breweries (bee) in N.C. but I'd never been on a distillery tour. I learned a lot. The brewery was a National Heritage site. It's the oldest continuous operating distillery in the US. During prohibition they were one of about 4 distilleries allowed to make "medicinal" alcholal. So if you lived in Kentucky you had it made. For example, your big toe hurt, the doctor wrote you a prescription for bourbon with instructions to make a hot toddy and the prescription was renewable for 2 years.

So my boys are in charge of my plants at home. Any bets on if they survive?!

We really did! And the best part...it was free! And prob the best tour in Frankfort according to what I read on Trip Advisor. The boys had fun. They got a lot of attention.
