Today we booked everything for our upcoming trip to San Diego. That’s right, I said “we.” The whole family is making the trip out to check out houses and get excited about the move. We leave in less than two weeks and will be gone for 8 days. After that it’ll be less than 2…… Continue reading Brave things
Megan and I took a walk today around the block. Here are some photos I snapped.
