|Pre-trip enthusiasm. Even Roxy was excited.|
We stayed with Aj's Mom and kept very busy. One highlight was going to his family (the very Italian side's) yearly "sausage day". I watched in awe as they, clearly a well oiled machine, formed an assembly line and (literally) cranked out hundreds of pounds of Italian sausage. It was fascinating to watch and I met and "re-met" lots of lovely members of my new family.
|E and Nona had some great bonding time :)|

Another highlight was going to the Henry Doorly Zoo. For all you zoo connoisseurs out there, this is definitely one to hit. It's one of the biggest in the country (the second largest I believe?), providing hours of fun (and sunburns, in our case unfortunately). I'm so excited for Evie to be old enough to actually enjoy all of the animals, but for now she had a blast being chauffeured around in her stroller all day.

|We got to see the girls' softball game. It was SO hot, but they played great.|
I hope you're all having a lovely week!
Until next time,
