Stella's 5-Year Well Visit

Stella's 5-year-old well visit was today, and all went well... especially since there were no shots needed! Stella is now 42.75 inches tall (56th percentile), 35 pounds (17th percentile), and her BMI is 13.4 (4th percentile). She's our little string bean!

Louisville Zoo

On this unusually warm President's Day, the kids and I packed into the car and headed an hour and a half west to the Louisville Zoo. This was our first visit, and it was a total blast!

Although the Louisville Zoo is on the smaller side, there was still plenty to see.

Porter absolutely loves bald eagles! He was thrilled to find these two beauties enjoying the sunshine:

When leaving the park, I asked Stella what animal she enjoyed seeing the most. Her reply? "The LIONS!"

Just FYI, there are no live lions at the Louisville Zoo, just a few statues in a play area. Oh this girl!

Marvelous Midway

This weekend, we headed to Midway, Kentucky for lunch and antiquing. We were not disappointed. We found several great antique shops, and all of them were shockingly kid-friendly, giving the kids candy and little treasures!

I have to say, Midway is one cool place. There is an old elementary school that has been repurposed as an apartment complex and bakery. The gingerbread cookies were divine!

We will definitely be returning to Midway soon!

Day in Danville

On this rainy Saturday afternoon, we had lunch at Tut's, a darling Egyptian restaurant in Danville, Kentucky. While there, Stella found a throne that was much to her liking!

After lunch, we walked down to Constitution Square, the birthplace of Kentucky's statehood.

The kids were not so much interested in the rich history of Constitution Square as they were some sticks they found on the ground and were using as weapons!

An Afternoon in Paris... Kentucky

This Sunday afternoon, we ventured to Paris, Kentucky for a walk around town.

As a family, we are suffering from cabin fever from these cold, gray days of winter.

So the moment the temperature rises to something bearable, we're in the car looking for somewhere new to explore.

The kids insisted on this photo op. I have to agree, it's pretty darn cute!
