Summer Visit {Photo-A-Day}

Ever since we moved to this home five years ago, we’ve used the two fences that flank our driveway to take a photo whilst she is here with us visiting. It’s a treat to go through old Facebook photos or external hard drives and see how much she has grown! Of course, there have been […]

The idea came to us one day while we were playing outside in the backyard with her stash of dinosaurs. I ran in and grabbed my camera, then started filming.
