My Day With Haylee

Note to Readers: Indulge me—if you’re not up for a syrupy “daddy story”—feel free to move on to something more interesting.

Learning to Laugh With and At Each Other

A Little Helpful Insight from Our Family Antics Yesterday, a little after noon, we finally loaded up in the car and began our traditional, annual family trek to Northern California for Thanksgiving.
