Lovely people that let me stay at their lovely place in a lovely city with the world's most loveliest noodles. But for real though, it's almost worth the plane ticket to just go and get noodles...

Going for a short hike to break up the long drive to PET BABY TIGERS!

Turns out Harrison loves baby tigers as much as I do!

He's getting to be more of a fish this year.

Corn isn't a car food...

Petting baby tigers wasn't enough so we made an aquarium stop.

No, we didn't sneak one home with us.

Tarquin had a blast visiting with his Grandma Kelly, Aunt and Cousin.

Exploring Louisville.

He's huge and he's sarcastic.

We had quite a few birthday parties this month.
