Hi everyone! We just returned from two back to back summer vacations. We’ve been on planes, in cabs, and spent loads of hours driving. We had a great time in both Las Vegas and Boise, Idaho but we are excited to be home now, and a big part of that is coming back to the routines and healthy…..
We’re camping at the beach this weekend. Grandparents, and sandwiches, sand and saltwater, little tanned legs and big cozy sweatshirts.
