Mamaw & Papa Baker come to visit!

So my mom and dad came for a visit this past weekend. Alexa warmed right up to them as well, just as she had with Kevin's parents earlier in the month. It also didn't hurt that "mamaw" had a sucker for Alexa as soon as she got in the car!! :-) Gramma also had some presents for Alexa as soon as we got back to the house. Here she is opening some shoes and some clothes, two of her favorite things already!!

And of course, she had to try on and model her new presents!!

The second day they were here (the 29th), we went for dinner at Lynn's Paradise Cafe, a funky little restaurant here in Louisville. Kevin and I have been wanting to try it out for quite some time and finally got the chance. And it didn't disappoint. It's very eclectic but very, very good!
We didn't know they had a store attached to it where you can buy all sorts of fun stuff. :-)
Alexa didn't like being a shark! Poor thing!
On Saturday, we went to Fall of the Ohio, just across the river in Indiana. It was pretty interesting but very hot and muggy outside so only Kevin really ventured down onto the slate and rock.
We had a great time with Gramma & Grampa Baker and hope their enjoying the cruise that they're on this week! Thanks for coming to visit us in Kentucky!!

Looks like you had fun! I've wanted to try Lynn's Paradise Cafe--you really liked it? I love the shark hat.

Those are the cutest little sandals I've ever seen! Oh, I need a girl to dress up. Hope you all are doing well!

I love that restaurant! It's really weird because 1/2 of the menu's food really isn't that good. But the other 1/2 is EXCELLENT! Plus, the atmosphere is just too much fun!
