a day in the life

I looked and it’s been SO long since I’ve done a “Day In The Life” post.  Like 2 years ago long (seriously.  go look at how little my kids were!  crazy how time flies!).  And after taking all the pictures that you’re about to see and then sitting down to type out the day’s events, …
