Can You Guess the City?

Shayla and Shayne rode along with me as I attended a wonderful teachers' conference this weekend. (It is always great to spend time with people you do not see enough of!) Shay and Shayne were able to enjoy many of the city's sights and I joined in when I could. Can you figure out the city? (Click on the "red" above to see the Photobucket slideshow.)

Thank goodness for those racetrack photos...I was totally stumped until I got to those! I was thinking the Kentucky Derby, and then I got lucky when one of the photos had a sign for Churchill Downs! So Kentucky is my guess. I think that Louisville is the city - am I right, Shayla? :-)

How 'bout Churchill Downs?? Of Kentucky Derby fame? (along with all of the surrounding sites....didn't you just LOVE Phantom of the Opera??)

How about Louisville, Kentucky where they "run for the roses"?

Louisville, Kentucky - Oh, that was just TOO EASY!!! I live about 25 miles away from those same sights - wish I would had known you guys were in town, my kids would had loved to shown you the sights! There is an indoor waterpark really close that is just UNBELIEVABLE! Hope that you enjoyed yourselves!

Hello Thomas Team. Being in the Southern Hemisphere puts us at a distinct disadvantage. But thanks to Google, here is what our family came up with.....Our guess is Louisville, Kentucky. There is snow on the ground in some of the pics and we had to find a USA map to see if Louisville looked like a place it would snow. We still don't know about the snow bit. On one of the signs we saw 'first derby 1875' so we googled that and came up with the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Then we saw CD on one of the stands and later a photo with the words Churchill Downs. We hope we are at least close this time as we've never been able to figure out the answer to one of your geography quizzes before. We can't figure out the significance of the golden chandelier in front of the 7th Street sign. Googling a chandelier in Louisville hasn't helped us. We hope you can let us know. Good night from Australia, Michelle.

This one is easy since you have pictures from the races ;-) You're in Louisville, KY. I hope you had as much fun as the pictures make it look like you did!

I am confident that you spent your weekend in my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. I recognize The Louisville Science Center, Churchill Downs, and the Phantom of the Opera was in town last week. My family has a pass to the Science Center; it would have been neat if we would have been there at the same time. They have a lot of nice interactive exhibits for children. I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Thanks for sharing!

Looks like Louisville, KY...from the horses/racing, plus a friend of mine who lives there just went to see Phantom of the Opera. Glad to read you had a nice trip.

I'm going to guess Louisville, Kentucky! Lets just when I show this to my sister she will be quite jealous! She is the horse lover in my family. Looks like a fun weekend!

I've just read all of the updates on Christithomas.org. The donations sound incredible. You've certainly been very busy. I have no doubt that Christi has approved of your many tributes and donations in her name.

I can never walk into a bookstore or library anymore without Christi coming to mind. And the MSKCC has become a regular "stop" on my outings.

It's simply amazing how much one little girl can inspire.

I'll say somewhere in Kentucky :)

You went to Louisville! Looks like Shayla had fun at Churchill Downs. I've always wanted to go there.

 
At 29/1/08 10:36 AM, Blogger Meredith said...

That is most definitely Louisville, KY ... the home of my husband. But you have to say Louuhvuhl... not loueyville. Even my kids say it the "right" way.

Louisville - KY?

You are in the great city of Chicago. Arlington Race track. At
least that is what it was called 30 years or so ago. I used to work there when I was 16 years old.

I found Christi's blog by accident a few months ago and usually lurk. However, it looks like Shayla is in my hometown - Louisville!
