The Perfect Accessory…

Jonah got some new boots…he thinks they are the perfect accessory for jeans, pajamas, or a size 4 diaper and a Diego bandaid. You can never go wrong with the perfect pair of boots!

Aww Man…

Last night we went to a wedding vow renewal/50th wedding anniversary party for a family member.
