Last California Post

I know I've been a slacker at blogging lately. This has been my life for the past two months: Get kids ready for school, get myself ready, pick up Kane from kindergarten and take him to Heidi's, drive to MATC for my school, pick up Kasey from volleyball or cheer, crash at home. Seriously, that's it.
If anyone would like to be my model at school for nail, toes, manicure or pedicure email me. I'm there from 12:30 - 4:30 M-F.

Here are the final pictures from our October California trip. Legoland & Wild Animal Park

Cutest picture of my nephew, Luke. Wild Animal Park.

Matt & Asher next to lego dad & kid (This is one of the few pictures I have of Matt smiling!)
