Summer 2012

  • Sunday, August 19, 2012
  • Jeff and Kari
  • Not only are we getting behind on our blogging, but Jeff has really started slacking on photography. As you can see from the video below our photographic library has predominately been relegated to iPhone snaps in indoor lighting (not a recipe for success when dealing with active kids). Hopefully, a good slide show with a catchy chorus will make up for our wondering ways. Enjoy...
