Originally posted on July 9, 2014. I thought we were going to get off Scot-free on vacation. No doctor visit. No ER trip. No hospital admission for Nathan. On our road trip back–less than ten hours from home–we had to take Nathan to the ER in Mobile, Alabama. We were staying at a hotel at […]
Taking the boys to New York was an adventure. If I had to further categorize it, I’d label it a comedy. Mac had recently watched the Christmas movie, Elf, so he spent the majority of his time reenacting scenes from the movie. I can’t count how many crosswalks he hopped across or escalators he tried […]
