We went to another escape room in a van. It was super hot but we had fun solving all the clues.  Good time

This truly a great post and I enjoyed all of it, first of all I want to thank you for taking the time to post this. One of the things that stands out the most is that these children are all best friends which is something that has been lost in other families. You are so involved in their lives and they are so friendly towards one another. In most of the pictures one is holding the other by putting their arm around them or holding hands, it's just so different to me not being raised that way. It has always been a pleasure to know you even though I'm not of your faith. After watching you for the past 8 or 9 years I wish I were raised in your faith, I know that I would have been a much better father and grand father if I had been.
