Ok, we’re back with our weekly series of Do You Know About Game of Thrones? I’m actually writing this week’s edition from my car. We spent the morning at the zoo romping around and just as I was deciding what our next move would be some kid pooped on the splash pad and they had to […]

Hi! Hi! Hi! Did you have a great 4th? Was your weekend as nuts as ours?? I hope so because it’s the best kind of weekend – until it’s over, right? I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve visited A+J and said hi; I guess it’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I just […]
