Who loves pie?? Im so glad we have a national holiday for it! April 28th is National Blueberry Pie Day and we are C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-N-G this delicious goodness with a giveaway from Wholly Wholesome!


Americans have loved these delicious berries since colonial times. Did you know that blueberry pie is one of the most popular pie flavors in the United States?

Fun Family Vacation At General Butler Park in Carrollton, Kentucky #‎generalbutlerstatepark‬

I love to spend time outdoors hiking, fishing, relaxing, etc. But I do not like to sleep in a tent. I need a real bed, air conditioning and a nice hot shower. So if my husband wants me to go on a camping trip with our family, he needs to find a place with a cabin.

We just moved to La Grange, Kentucky. It’s a small and awesome town about 25 miles East of Louisville, Kentucky. It’s a quiet town with a unique downtown that had a train that runs through it. We have tried to find some fun spots, close to La Grange, to enjoy outside with our family.

Just about 25 miles East of our little town is an even smaller town called Carrolton. In Carrolton is General Butler State Park. It’s so easy to get to – just a few miles from I-71. And if you are like me, you will be happy to know there are restaurants and grocery stores just a few miles from the campsite.

About General Butler State Park:

Northern Kentucky’s first state park and one of the first 10 in the commonwealth is General Butler State Resort Park. On August 12, 1931, a 300-acre tract comprising part of the old William O. Butler family farm became Kentucky’s sixth state park. Not only is the park a historic site, it is also a place of great natural beauty. This is the only spot in Kentucky that has the unique view of the convergence of the Kentucky and Ohio Rivers.

There is a ton to do so let me take you on a quick tour of our time at General Butler Park!
