Her brother, sister-in-law, and nieces all came to visit, so we spent the hottest day of the year running around downtown. After visiting the aquarium and having some ribs, we went across the river to Coolidge Park, where […]

Cousins, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza made her first big trip to Kentucky over the weekend. She met more people in three days that she had met in her life so far. Great grandmother, great grandfather, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends. Everyone fell in love with her, of course, and she seemed to have a great […]
