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 […]

A VERY Busy Spring Break!

What a week! It’s always great to spend a lot of time with Littles, but the amount of activities and events we crammed into our time together was record breaking! From setting up primary doctors, feeding ducks at the lake,  to dad’s birthday, it was incredible.
