What we’ve been up to this summer

This …

And some of this …

And a little of this …

How about you?

Happy March!

To start the month off right, I’m sharing this adorable video of an 8-month-old boy laughing hysterically while his at-home daddy rips up a job rejection letter. If this doesn’t cure what ails ye this late winter, I’m not sure anything will.

From Daniel

Daniel bounds into the room.
