Big Four Bridge

In early April we had a decent spring day so we decided to check out the new Big Four bridge.  Louisville recently opened a pedestrian and bicycle bridge that was an old railroad truss bridge.  It goes over the Ohio River by downtown in the Waterfront Park area.  The Indiana side isn't open yet, but should be soon.  It's a good walk going across and back, at least 1 1/2 miles.  It was a little chilly and windy up on the bridge that day, but it was nice to see so many people taking advantage of the bridge.  The girls enjoyed it and Jeremy likes to explain structural stuff to Addie so I think he enjoyed it too. 😀  Plus, as you can see from the pictures below Jeremy got a good workout while carrying one (or sometimes both) of the girls.

The big loop is the ramp to get to the bridge.

Addie made these "binoculars" out of toilet paper rolls at daycare the week prior for space week so she wanted to take them with her on the bridge.  She used them a lot.  It was cracking people up when we walked by.

Love these two photos.  So sweet!
