Splash Park

Ben & Zion love getting to hang out on these summer days. This week, it was “to the splash park.” (✔️ that off our Summer Bucket List!)  Zi didn’t participate a ton. Due to an impending nap time, he was tired! But I didn’t pass up a chance to get some snaps of that cute baby […]

Grandma Mahedy joined Chelsea, mom and I. And, of course, Zion and Ben tagged along too. It was a hot day — as we hadn’t quite adjusted to […]
