Pregnant – 32 Weeks with Twins Update

To summarize the last several weeks, I’d say heavy, Halloween, and haircut accurately sums it up.

Memorial Day Weekend 2016 – South Lake Tahoe

We spent Memorial Day weekend in South Lake Tahoe with a group of friends in an AirBnB with a pool table, fooseball table, jacuzzi, and a backyard grill. After braving 7 hours of traffic with dog and baby in tow, we got to the house at around 9PM. Lake Tahoe’s water is always cold as […]
