Groton, CT

In May, Banjo and Emily traveled to Groton, CT with Grandma Julie and Grandpa Mike to spend the week with Uncle Jason, Auntie Terinna, and cousin Thea. We also got to see a lot of my dad's family to celebrate the graduation of my cousin Jake for the Coast Guard Academy. Our family truly is our anchor--in this case literal anchors as we celebrate the careers of a Navy and a Coast Guard man! 

Shark Attack

Shark Attack

Over Mother's Day weekend we spent a lovely day at the Newport Aquarium in Newport, KY. This is, hands down, the best aquarium I've ever seen! Great exhibits, really family/kid friendly, and lots to see and do. Plus, since it is located at Newport on the Levee, there are other food and shopping options that can pad the trip and make it a day outing. We had a delicious pizza lunch at Dewey's!! 

Derby Day

Derby Day

On the first Saturday in May we celebrated the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby! Our friends always host the annual Derby Party, complete with an array of quiches, summer salads, seersucker suits, bowties, fabulous hats, and mint juleps. This was Banjo's first Derby Party and he showed up in style wearing a flashy bowtie and salmon pink pants. Read more about our day!
