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!!
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!
Last month for Jordan's birthday, we drove into Chicago and spent the day at the Field Museum. What an awesome museum! We spent several hours there and still didn't feel like we saw everything. Read more about this fun, family friendly day trip adventure!
