Um, Hannah, you are supposed to eat that cake,

What to do when you are stuck in Daddy's closet
during wild weather:
eat all of his breathmints like candy
and drape yourself in his ties!

Snacking through the MDO program

With his best friend, Isabelle, at the

Last Day of Mother's Day Out  :(

Enjoying the car carts at Meijer in Michigan

Making not so memorable memories

The Train Toy Store was seriously the
best part of the trip for this kid!
