A Very Pink Flamingo Day

My daughter turned 3 last week, and we had her party this weekend. By her request it was a pink flamingo party. We started with a quick trip to the zoo to tell the pink flamingos good morning.

I’m so… Continue reading Remember the “Get Ready for Fall” Meet and Greet this Saturday
