how to celebrate america!

My blog is a bit late because we’ve been having fun. And having record breaking heat so mostly at night we sit outside and the last thing I’ve wanted to do is put a laptop on my lap. But it went down in temps today and so I’m cuddled up on my bed ready to […]

Little Sammy loved it, and we did […]
