I went and visited a private … read more
On Sunday my son turned 7. This weekend was spent partying at the pumpkin patch where my son and nearly 25 of his friends and their parents joined us in helping him celebrate in a big way. Thanks to Trina and Kita for coming out! Here is their photo from last year. They grow so fast *weeps* How was your weekend?
Big Sister, Lil Sister
