First Week With All Four

This week was the first week I had all four kids with me all day long in full blown summer mode.

What did we do?

Well, what DIDN’T we do might be a better question…

Tuesday was a hot and sunny day, perfect for the Hidden Creek Aqua Park in Highland Park.

Ben shared so nicely with these kids.
