Fun at the Park

Fun on the slide

I like to think of Sundays as our “family fun” day. Sundays are (generally) the only day that Edison and I have off work together, and Matthew is home from school (which isn’t an issue in the summer, of course, but you get what I mean). We always like to try and do something fun …
