California Perspective

November 23, 2016

All hell broke loose – just as I expected.  The kids were screaming and there were real tears.  Leaving Auntie Ang and Uncle Brock’s house was a complete s—show.  Mercifully, no one was there to see it (although I’m sure the neighbors got an eye full).  I absolutely believe that the kids are loving this…
