Saturday Night Special – A Unscheduled ER Visit

One minute we’re all on the couch eating popcorn and watching a movie, the next moment we’re in the car driving to the ER. Max hurt himself in a way that I won’t get into because even I wish I could forget it, but it turned out fine in the end and it was a […]

  Earlier this week while I was running an errand with the kids we noticed a new trampoline place. What surprised me was that it’s located in a business park, not a location that would ever really see drive by traffic. We checked it out that afternoon but today they went to actually JUMP and […]
