Great Day with my Daughter!

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Great Day with my Daughter!

Post by alumacraftjoe »

Yesterday my son had a birthday party to go to and my wife took him. Me and Taylor had some time to kill so we decided to go down to the river in downtown Jeffersonville across the river from Louisville. She loves to feed the ducks and they have a nice river walkway. After the walk by the river we headed up Spring street and stopped in an old fashion candy shop .. too cool. Best part of the day as we are walking back to the car Taylor tells me this was the best day of her life. Made me feel great and only cost about 2 bucks for a couple of peaces of candy :mrgreen:

At the candy store - they did a demonstration on old time candy making, had a candy museum, and some great candy... even had sugar free:

They have done similar stuff in bigger cities Chicago, Cincy, and Louisville did horses where businesses and individuals buy them (money goes to charity) and then artists decorate them. I guess the little pigs are just Jeffersonville's way to do the same thing.

Great day for sure! My family and I visited that area a few years back on a mini vacation to the Cincinnati Zoo. Thanks for sharing!
