WW3 and April 1st….

Its here. April 1st. and WW3. No kidding. You see, in our house, an ongoing war rages every year on this day between this innocent face.... and this innocent (enough) face.

Spring Fling with Papa Burgers…..

Yesterday was the first glimpse we had of a breath of Spring. Water running from the roof, dripping on the steps. Our first taste of warm air kissing the snow, melting it away from the driveway. Birds singing and the sound of liquid Spring everywhere we turned. So how did we celebrate? We made Papa [...]
