Five years ago when Grandma Shirley and Grandpa Harold took the family on a cruise across the Atlantic Ocean for their 60th wedding anniversary, Sara and Jeff could not attend because Sara was 7 months pregnant with Helena. Instead, Sara and Jeff went to Portland, Maine for a few days. Ironically, that was the first port on the cruise on August 3rd. Given the proximity to Boston (only 2 hours away), Sara's mother, aunt, and some cousins drove up for a brief visit as well.

Everybody else was having two entrees. Jonathan thought he would indulge in macaroni and cheese with tater tots, and a hamburger with broccoli and French fries. I think he got all the food groups covered!
