Life Update for the Last Two Weeks

Hey everyone, I thought I’d do a quick life update to give you an idea of what’s going on in my world for the past couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy!

Family Trip in Washington D.C.

We went to D.C. last week, and we had a great time. Alison and I like to say that a trip with the kids isn’t “vacation”, it’s a “family trip”.
