Making Memories

Life passes us by just with a blink of an eye. Our tomorrow’s are not guaranteed. Heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, and now Covid…are just a few of the various things can take a person away, changing so many lives unexpectedly. People grow up and apart as life has us all so busy in trying to keep up, leaving one another behind. So, we have one thing that we can look back on to remind us of better days that are now behind. Memories.

Memories are a way to look back at time and never forget the closeness we once had with those that meant so much to us during that season or period of time. Memories can be captured in so many ways. So, what is holding you back from capturing the time that you have been blessed with, with those who are valuable to you and still present in your life?

The question isn’t whether or not the day will come, but WHEN the day comes that you are no longer able to see someone you love so deeply, who impacted your life so tremendously, you will want something to remember their voice again, their being. You will want to remember what they looked like as their image in your head will begin to fade with time, slowly. One day if you are lucky, you will wake up older and will want to take a look back at moments that occurred in your life. These things that keep the memories alive are what will lighten your heart again.

Here are 6 Different Ways to Capture Memories

Take Too Many Pictures
So many have become shy around cameras, but little do we realize that those are the things that family and friends will be left with when we are no longer around. Not only that, but as I mentioned above, we become so consumed with the responsibilities in our lives that time passes us by. A picture is only a moment in which time is still, but tells a story that is kept within our hearts. Take those pictures and have something to look back on with a smile.

Video Recordings
When you see your parents dancing or your siblings acting silly, take the opportunity to make it a lasting memory. To laugh back at or just remember the simpler times. There have been so many times where my family and I pull out old video recordings from many years back and are just so grateful that someone captured that moment. When there are times that some people can’t be around family, such as today because of covid, that is when these recording will warm the heart. These recordings will rush you back to some wonderful memories that you forgot even happened.

Take Advantage of Voice Recordings
Thanks to Build-A-Bear, we can now record our own voices into teddy bears. These gifts do not have to be particularly for children, but husbands/wives, parents, friends, and your brother/ sister will also treasure these bears with great sentiment. Many times when someone passes away we often, not purposely, forget the sound of their voice. Even keeping a voicemail of a simple, “Hey, its me. Call me back.” is special. Oh, how so many wish they can hear the voice of a parent or spouse who has passed away.

Make Clay Hand Molds
These were a big hit a few years back and I never really thought about how special these clay molds are. They tell about a time when your child was small and could barely stand on their own. Years later, it will drift you back to memories of how their tiny fingers held onto yours as they slept. This can be done with an elderly Mother and her adult daughter holding hands. Time is precious and doesn’t keep those we love around for very long. An anniversary memory with Husband and wife clinging hands. Clay hand molds are such an amazing way to make a lasting memory.

Write Letters
Letters express feelings and emotions that we once forgot others had for us or we had for them. Many times a letter to ourselves is just as an important memory as the one to a loved one. These are great memories to have, because they shed light on the exact thoughts you once had. Our thoughts, there are millions, but when we write them in a letter that is one thought that we can actually remember. Not too long ago my sister pulled out a letter from my niece from 10 years ago, and though it took us so long for us to figure out what she had written (She had just learned to spell, haha), it reminded me of the phases she was going through at that time in her young age. Her message to me was, “I need Superman and Robin to beat up bad guys and save the universe.” At that time, she was into superheroes and I remember I always pretended to be Robin and her Superman. Letters are just as meaningful as pictures just processed differently.

A Valuable Object
When we think of something valuable we think about shirts, jewelry, gifts. But, that’s not so much what I am talking about when I say valuable objects. Though the ladder are also great things to keep and cherish. What I mean, however, are movie tickets from your first date. A flower you picked from the ground when you were on vacation with family. Perhaps even a cup from a football game you took your dad to for his birthday. You can add these into a memory scrapbook that you can look back on years down the road and share with your grandkids.

Capturing the Moment

No matter what it is you are doing or with who, there are always ways to make memories from that day with that person. We don’t have forever and as I mentioned, these are the things we are left with as time passes. I have kept so many things from my school years and though some of those friends and I have lost contact or have just moved on with life in a different direction, it is still nice to look through them and remember the times we all had together. The way to making memories is putting your pride and shyness aside and capturing the moment, in the moment. You won’t regret taking that picture or recording, but you will regret not having it when there is nothing else to look back on. Cherish the time you have and make memories. Every moment can be a memory.

Family Holidays

A Christmas Reminder

Yay!! Christmas is Tomorrow! Today many are beginning the celebration that will continue into the morning of the 25th. This is the time of year we all have been waiting for. I know the circumstances are much different this year for many families, however, that should not change what Christmas means to you. Be safe, yes, but also be grateful.

What Does Christmas mean for you and your family? For me, Christmas is not about the amount we spent on others’ gifts, or how pretty we wrapped presents, what type of bows we used, and how perfect we lined up the wrapping paper. It is not about receiving any gifts at all. I mean, it is a plus (Haha), but that is not what makes Christmas magical. Gifts don’t having meaning. FAMILY…- Now, that has meaning.

This will not be a long blog about what to do on this holiday, but a short, simple, & sweet Christmas Reminder

Christmas for me, is having the time to rejoice with family and cherish the closeness with one another. It’s about taking a step back and watching your sister conversate with your mom and witnessing their smile and love for each other. It’s about the look on your father’s face loving and taking in every moment of his kids and grandkids being unified and happy. It’s watching your brother laugh and make jokes having everyone else at the table laughing.

For me and my family, we don’t get together much. Our family is pretty small as it is. On birthday’s one is always missing from the bunch, understandably, as life has us busy. Christmas, though, is one that we try to be present for every year, even if it is for a short while. Maybe it’s because we get the day off from work so that gives us the time to actually gather. Or perhaps it is the gifts!

Christmas for me, however, brings warmness to my heart. It reminds me that once again this year, we all made it, we survived another year. We may have argued, but got over it, and we do mean something to each other, afterall. To me, it means respect. We all may have other plans or probably even have more entertaining places we could be at, but we choose each other. We choose family over anyone else. We choose to show up for one another. WE choose us.

The year 2020 was hard for many families. People can sit there and say the Coronavirus was a hoax and is not real, but that may be because you have been blessed beyond measure this time around… Families lost their father’s to this. Someone’s Mother didn’t make it. Parent’s are broken from losing their child because, yes, Children can get it, did get it, and died from it. Have a heart and don’t be so selfish, but take this as a reason to count your blessings this year.

If you are blessed enough to have your family still alive and safe this year, cherish it, because not everyone was as lucky. As for me and my family, we will not be gathering as we do take the precautions serious due to having elderly parents with underlying conditions. As much as we want to be together and have been hoping things would have been different by this time, we wouldn’t dare put them or each other at any risk. As I truly believe, I can stay away for a few months to have many more years with them. And if something were to happen within those few months, I will know it wasn’t due to my carelessness.

This does not mean that Christmas is canceled for us. Yes, we will be away from each other this time around, but facetiming, skyping, and video calling is still there for times as these. A drive-by, as we all live near one another, isn’t off the table. And of course, the gifts can still be dropped at the porch, if any were bought. We will miss each other as this is something that has never been done our entire lives, but we understand it is best for us and we each appreciate and respect it.

This is a reminder to enjoy your family in whatever way you choose to spend this holiday. Take in the laughs, and smiles, and Joy. As we learned this year, we can all be taken from each other at any random moment with no reason, no warning. This Christmas remember those who have always been in your corner. Always picked you back up after falling. And those who you hold dear to your heart. Take this time to love unconditionally and make memories. Merry Christmas!

Family Health Holidays

A Covid Christmas

We had a feeling this Christmas was going to be different, but we all were hoping for a better outcome. Things will be better soon, but in the meantime, with one of the most celebrated holidays we have to think outside of the box when it comes to our safety and gatherings.

As we so desperately want to spend the holidays with our family and friends, Which I get, we have to remain mindful about not only our health, but the health of our children, parents, and extended families. Not everyone has underlying conditions, but that still does not mean that they are safe from this virus and cannot suffer tremendously if contracted.

There are some ways to prioritize your safety and well being during this holiday season. Here, I am going to help you figure out how to accomplish this, if you cannot absolutely go without being around others.

3 Ways to Set the Tone During a Covid Christmas

1. Communicate clear boundaries
Remind your guests that they are welcome, but things will be different this time around. Now, I know not everyone accepts CDC guidelines and what-not, but you as a human should want to make a difference in people’s lives in a non-selfish, positive way. This means, masks aren’t a bad idea. I would also suggest making them wash their hands as they come into your house. This should be a part of good hygiene, anyway, especially during flu season. Staying 6 ft. from one another is another wise choice to make. Shoe covers are another barrier against inviting covid inside your house into your rooms/kitchen/ restrooms/ etc., that you will eventually step on and spread onto your bed. And NO SHARING DRINKS. You are probably looking forward to taking shots with your company, but I highly doubt you will be keeping track of who’s shot glass belongs to who and if you’re taking shots, chances are you won’t think clearly and could care less. That is up until you begin feeling symptoms a few days later…. One important thing to remember, after everyone leaves, sanitize every part of your house. Doorknobs, light fixtures, restrooms, sinks, toilets, floors, couches, tables, chairs…. basically – EVERYTHING.

2. Set the standards
Not only do you all have to think about yourselves, but also about the other guests that will be around everyone else as well. There is no telling who they can possibly come in contact with for the next 14 days after leaving your house and who’s body cannot fight a virus such as covid. Let’s keep an open mind and remember those who have a weak immunity and even those who don’t know that they do actually have an underlying condition. This applies to you as well. Safety begins with you and your household rules. Right now, your choices may affect someone’s life, even someone who you don’t personally know. Be responsible and caring.

3. Skip gifts and enjoy the time instead
This couldn’t be a better idea for many reasons. This year has been hard on a lot of people, not only in a health perspective, but financial situations have been shaken. Some have to save their every penny they can as jobs aren’t as secure as before. Jobs that are open today may shut down tomorrow. Layoff’s may be a companies only resort to stay afloat. Not to mention, exchanging gifts may also include exchanging covid. Skip gifts this year and instead focus on the guests that are able to attend and cherish making those memories. As we may have figured out, this year was the year of being grateful for those we do have in our lives and appreciate the moments spent in togetherness.

Remembering Those Who Choose To Stay Home

Christmas is a time to be with those you appreciate and love the most. Though, this may not be an option for many that does not mean they cannot be a part of the memories. Visit virtually with those who cannot join you during this time. Set time aside to make phone calls to them and send them Merry Blessings.

Stay safe. Protect yourself and the little ones who depend on you to protect them. Keep the peace. Laugh, Love, Make memories, and maintain a safe distance from everyone else. Merry Christmas and may this be the last Christmas that’s been pandemic-tized!

Family Friends Self- Improvement

Mending Broken Bridges

Having pride can be such a wonderful thing and a positive personality trait to have. But oh, how having pride can also be a selfish trait that tears your most valued relationships apart. Letting your pride come between you and those you love is not only damaging to you and them, but to everyone in the middle.

In families and even in friendships, there will be disagreements about many things. The best thing you can do is agree to disagree and move on from that subject. Not always is that the case, however.

Many times we let ourselves get caught up in the moment and get overheated that instead of taking things with a grain of salt, we insist on getting our point across and let words slip right off of our tongue’s without thinking about the consequences or how deep those words cut. Sometimes, it’s not just our words that hit hard, but our actions.

I was watching an episode of “This Is Us” and there was a scene where Kevin told his adopted brother, Russell, “I used to think the worst day of my life was when dad died, but it was the day they brought you home.” Though, this is just a television series things like this happen in real life and words can’t be taken back. A few scenes later Kevin regretted what he had said, but instead of apologizing to his brother Randall, when he saw him a few days after he just tried to be nice and strike up a conversation about anything, really. As if that would fix what had happened between them a few days before or make up for the words that were already said.

Beating around the bush does not mean the elephant isn’t in the room. Pretending like y’all have moved on is not a fix to any problem. You cannot just sweep things under the rug hoping the issue will disappear. Sometimes, In life there will be times that you are wrong… actually, many times… and all you can do to make things right is take responsibility, apologize, and learn how to control your reactions and your words.

We are human and it is inevitable that we will find ourselves in such a predicament that will urge us to say and do hurtful things to another out of anger. However, being angry does not justify such behavior. Sometimes, the best thing you can do is gather your belongings and leave before things take an ugly turn.

On a different note if things have already gotten out of hand, knowing when you are wrong and taking accountability for what you have done is what matters after that point. This is where pride usually stands in the way for many.

Things can be different when you take accountability resulting in mending relationships. Many Marriages fail simply from being too prideful. No one wants to look weak and apologize or accept apologies from the other. Relationships between siblings or parents and children suffer the same. All for what, your pride?

We are all human, we all make wrong choices, say wrong things, and react in not such great ways from time to time. Is you not wanting to say sorry because you don’t want to look dumb or weak or be rejected worth losing your close relationship with your brothers and sisters? Are you really that afraid to show that you have a conscience and have a heart that you would rather lose your childhood friend to a disagreement? Are you so ashamed to admit you could be wrong that you would rather ignore your spouse and best friend for the next few months possibly risking getting a divorce over something so minute?

Life is short. Grudges are a waste of time that we can’t get back. At the end of the day your pride could be ruining your time with someone who would run to you in an instant to help you. You only have one family, make things right. Your wife/husband probably has no clue how you feel or how hurt/angry you are and needs to understand, but you aren’t teaching them your needs. Communicate. There is nothing weak about a person who acknowledges their wrongdoings and owns up to them.

Absolutely, boundaries are needed and some things just shouldn’t be said or done, but there is nothing worse than waking up one day knowing you missed your opportunity to speak to them again, to change your prideful ways, to hug, laugh, kiss, and enjoy them…. to say sorry and start fresh again.

If you aren’t speaking to someone over money, remember money comes and goes. If you aren’t speaking to someone because you have different opinions over politics or what is happening in the world, leave it alone, everyone is entitled to their opinion and they won’t be the last to disagree with you. If someone has gone above and beyond, bent over backwards for you, given you a hand when you were at your lowest, fix things with them because you will never find anyone with that kind of heart and love again.

Whether you have grown apart from your mom and dad, your sister or brother, or even your own kids due to your hurtful words or actions, it is up to you to make things right. Reach out, open up, and talk to them. Mend the quarrel. Listen. Apologize if you were wrong and accept apologies from those who hurt you. “I’m Sorry” never made things worse, but brought people back together. Reach out and make a new beginning before it’s too late.

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay: Losing A Loved One

This is dedicated to my Brother in law who lost a parent, my niece who lost a grandparent, and my sister who lost an in law. This is for my dear friend who lost her husband and her children who lost their father. This is for a friend who lost a cousin. This is for the neighbors who lost their grandparent. This is for a friend who lost his brother in law and best friend. This is for a friend who lost her mother. This is for a parent who lost their child. This is for the brother who lost his sister. This is for the sister who lost her brother. This is for you if you lost someone you loved. And lastly, this is for me as I have lost a great friend. Rest in Peace, Gary Wright.

There is never a good enough reason for a loved one to be taken from us. Losing someone you love is something so hard to bear that even a person who is mentally strong breaks down to a million pieces and drowns himself in his own tears from the heartache. There is nothing like it. When someone experiences the loss of a loved one It changes them in a way, that they could never go back being the person they once were. They will never be the same. This is not a blog to guide you on how to cope and accept your loss. This is simply to let you know that it is okay to not be okay. You may have lost someone 3 years ago maybe even 10 and stillcannot quite grasp the realtiy of it all, and that is okay. There is no timeline on when you should accept, stop crying and hurting, and move on. That is not how it works when dealing with the daily struggles of losing someone so dear to you. Losing someone you love is so devestating that you can actually feel your heart break into tiny pieces. You feel so helpless because there is nothing that can repair the loss and there is nothing that can put your broken pieces back together again.

There is no right or wrong way to grieve, you have been changed forever. You don’t wake up one day and just get over the loss you have suffered and are ready to live life the way you once did when that person was next to you. No… BUT,you may wake up one day and not even realize that you have already accepted the fact that they arent physically here with you and thats the best that you can do, is accept. You can cherish the memories, go through photos, and even talk with them. They are still near you. They did not leave you behind. They never left you at all. When you cry, they hold you wishing they could tell you that you are not alone. When you talk with them, they are hearing you and talking right back to you wishing that you could hear them, too. But when you dream of them, perhaps that is the only way they can connect with you, who knows? That is where hope comes in. You can lose yourself in your tears for a moment (not forever), but keep that hope alive. Keep that hope that tells you that one day you will be able to live with the fact that they are gone. Keep hope that you will meet with them someday and they will run to you with arms wide open.

You may wake up each and every day pretending that you are okay, while your heart is screaming in pain. I am here to tell you that you do not have to pretend. Cry. Scream. Take days off. But when you are done, you have to pick yourself back up and know that you have to continue to move forward. Not moving on, just forward. Don’t forget them, don’t cover up the pain, but feel and live until you can sincerely smile without forcing yourself to. That is hope – Finding your smile back when you have endured true hardship. Each griever must find their own way. You will find your way back to some type of normalcy. Your own normalcy. Your new normalcy. Take your time. Embrace your reality. I know your spirit is crushed, but one day it will be whole again. You will never get ‘over it’, but you will get through it. Keep that hope. Its okay to not be okay, just as long as you’re not giving up. It is hard to be strong after a tremendous loss, and you don’t have to be. You don’t even have to look strong. It’s okay to fall apart. This is one hard fight for you. This is a wound that will scab over, but never completely heal. Its okay to have bad days because it reminds you how much you love them and the good days remind you that they are right there with you. It’s okay to not be okay.

Family Parenting

The Forgiving Hearts of our Children

I know that you have had some pretty questionable days that leave you feeling as if you are an unworthy parent. If anything, it was simply a tough day for you. The children were at each others throats again and you could not seem to get anything done around the house without dealing with their temper tantrums, screaming and crying, and, “Mommmmmmmm!” be called out all day long. So what did you do? You put one in timeout for hitting his little sister. You yelled at the other. You probably even threatened to punish them both from their games and television at some point.

Later in the evening after bathing the children and sending them to sleep you laid your exhausted body down and thought, “I was really harsh today. I should have been more patient with them. I shouldn’t have reacted the way I did.” It is normal for us to grow weary after being frayed at the edges and pulled tight in every direction.

We tend to be highly critical of ourselves after having a stressful day with the kids. We truly make ourselves believe that we are inadequate parents and feel extremely guilty for showing tough love at times. The next day we may even fall into the trap of being a little too lenient with them due to the remorseful feeling that lingered on from the day before. We still have to remember to stay consistent about behaviors that are and aren’t acceptable in order to raise kids that will grow to be responsible adults with great mannerisms.

What you probably have not yet realized, is that our children have the most forgiving hearts that we could ever know and there is no need to be hard on ourselves for having days where we are emotionally and mentally strained.

I am profoundly humbled by my son when I have a difficult day with him. After yelling at him or placing him in timeout, he quickly forgives. It is almost as if he had forgotten that I just got after him. He still hugs and showers me with kisses right after. He looks at me with the most loving eyes. Our kids are no grudge holders. They do not hold the tough days against us. Even after him upsetting me I still feel annoyed a few hours later, but when I see how forgiving his heart is, it inspires me to be as forgiving as he. The next day all I can do is vow to have more patience with him and to remember to forgive as quickly as him.

Some things shouldn’t even matter like water being spilt on the floor, or getting their outfit dirty. We have to keep in mind that carpets dry, clothes get washed, but our babies, well, they only stay little for a little while so we must soak it all in while we have the chance. If only we had the forgiving hearts of a child, who knows how different the world would be today.

Your little ones still think of you as their hero. You still hold the keys to their pure hearts. They look up to you regardless of how awful you think you acted with them today. You could do no wrong in their eyes. So, tonight when you lay your tired head down and you are left in the middle of the night tossing and turning with a heavy heart, know that they have already forgiven you. They love you. They don’t see you as a monster even if they cried like you were one earlier. Tomorrow is another day and they will love you just as much if not more. You have been forgiven already and don’t even know it yet. You need only to have the same forgiving hearts as they and forgive yourself.


25 for your 4th of July

Just when we thought things were improving, COVID-19 came with a vengeance. It seems like 2020 has a mission to drive our children and us crazy. The kids are getting a little restless with not much excitement going on these days, especially those toddlers. And who can blame them?!

Holidays were something we looked forward to, spent with other family members and friends while enjoying a barbecue. Now, we are left with having to come up with new ways to entertain the little ones when we ourselves are longing for (with great reason) a break. Even us adults are staring out our windows waiting for the green light back to some normalcy. I have faith that things will get better soon.

However, in the meantime, I decided to create a list with 25 outdoor activities that even COVID-19 cannot take from us. I hope your family enjoys it as much as I enjoyed creating this for you all.

25 Outdoor Activities

1. Play with the yard-hose pretending to be Firemen/women (You might want a water hose nozzle to help save water).

2. Play in the kiddie pool with all the superheros (Yes really, superhero figurines join in on the fun, too).

3. Jump on the trampoline while sprinklers are on (SOOOO fun and tiring).

4. Run around the yard pretending to be airplanes.

5. Feed the birds bread and wait with binoculars (We use them even though we are on the porch and have no need for them).

6. Play hide and seek (This is great because toddlers will tell you exactly where they will be hiding).

7. Water gun fights.

8. Water balloon fights.

9. Go for a walk with the wagon (Away from others).

10. Draw with sidewalk chalk (In our case, we draw Peppa Pig and her entire family ALL the time!).

11. Play hot potato with a water balloon (Have many on standby).

12. Play T-ball in the backyard.

13. Enjoy watermelon outside then plant the seeds.

14. Hunt for bugs (Really gross for me, but what can I expect from a boy?!).

15. Whipped cream fight (Everyone love this one. You’ll definitely need a rinse with the hose afterward. Another plus for the kids!).

16. Potato sack races.

17. Read books while dressed as superheroes (A superhero voice is mandatory!) P.S. I just had to sneak an indoor activity in 🙂

18. Slip ‘n’ Slide fun with soap.

19. Fill eggs with washable paint and throw at a target on the ground (We have ours hung on our fence).

20. Paint on driveway or even on self (Washable paint, that is).

21. Try an experiment (Slime).

22. Glue a birdhouse together and paint it.

23. Watch YouTube Fortnite dance videos and challenge each other (Can be done indoor and outdoor).

24. Go out for a drive (I do this when I am all pooped out).

25. Indoor tag (Some days I really can’t take the heat).

*Toddler Bonus* My son and I do this activity often, because it is educational for him and restful for me: I draw squares vertically up and down on our driveway exactly like hopscotch. The number of squares will depend on what word I am going to spell out.

Example RED: I draw 3 squares with a large R written in the bottom square since that’s the first square he will jump into. E in the middle square, and D in the top and last square he will land on. As he jumps into the square, he yells out the letter he lands on, eventually spelling out the word (colors, numbers, his name, or any word I am trying to get him to learn to spell). By the end of the week, he learns to spell a new word. He loves jumping and sees it as a game so its super fun for him. Before we begin the activity, I tell him what the word is and I yell out the letters as I land into that square so he can know how it is “played”.

I know some of these are pretty basic and I did this with my readers in mind. Some of you may have only toddlers and some may have a mixture of teenagers and toddlers. I tried to make it fun for all.

Leave a comment and tell me which activities were a hit for your 4th of July celebration or just your typical summer day.

Have fun and stay safe, friends 🙂

A Summer Challenge

Texas is well known for its saying, “Everything is bigger in Texas”, but has it been mentioned that it is also known for its muggy weather? Today had been utterly humid, to say the least. However, the day was beautiful and I was contemplating on what to do with the kid(That’s the nickname for my son).

Well, Whats the next best thing to do on an extremely hot and sticky day, besides staying in the house where the a/c works? GET WET- and that is exactly what we did! There is nothing like connecting a wiggling water sprinkler onto your hose and soaking up all the water that’ll make contact with your skin along with the beaming sun.

It was such a blast! We ran around the sprinkler chasing each other. We aimed the wildly wiggling tubes at each other. He and I danced to Alan Jacksons “Remember When”, (Which was totally adorable even though my 3 year old had no clue what the song was about). We searched for bugs in muddy puddles that had formed in the yard, and after washing some of his monster trucks under the sprinkler, we sat down and enjoyed some popsicles – blue for him and red for me. Even though it wasn’t the freshest day of the season, today was certainly fun and most importantly, it was spent with my most favorite person.

I know that some days you just want to stay inside and watch some television just to avoid the heat (and believe me I have many of those moments). But when you shake that feeling off and take your behind outside, turn up some jams, and run around as if you yourself were only 10, then you won’t think of being outside on a sultry day so much as a bad thing.

Sometimes, it is easier to let our kids be kids in the summer heat whilst joining in on the fun and also letting ourselves be kids. Afterall, we deserve to put a pause to adulthood every now and again just to inhale the beauty of Life and exhale the bullsh*ts of Life.

Anyway, I challenge you to wake the child from within and let loose. Have some fun, run around, and show your kids that life can always be a good time no matter the age (or weather). Drop a comment below and let me know how it goes and remember…. hot and humid days can still be refreshing 🙂
