Beluga Photobomb!

Thursday, April 24th, 2014










Juno, an 11-year-old beluga whale at Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Conn., perfectly timed this snapshot behind newlyweds Amanda and Patrick Leigh.

The happy couple, who are self-proclaimed animal lovers, didn’t plan the whale’s amazingly executed photobomb, but sure are glad he was in the right place at the right time to capture his smile on camera.

“That was just a lucky photo,” Amanda Leigh, 27, of West Haven, Conn., told GoodMorningAmerica.com. “We were down in front of the aquarium taking pictures. We paused to fix the dress and the whale happened to come over. My husband and I looked behind us and he was right there, like, ‘Hello.’”

“We never in a million years thought this would be anything,” she explained. “But we used it as our Christmas card and everyone loves it.”

Much Appreciated!

Easter 2014

Monday, April 7th, 2014


Easter is Sunday, April 20, this year.

Easter, the greatest feast day in the Christian calendar, celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Easter is a moveable feast, which means that it does not occur on the same date every year.   The Easter Bunny tradition originates  from German Lutherans.  Bunnies also just happen to be very cute!
