Birthday at the park

Ah birthdays. One year older, and now that I'm 26 I'm officially on the road to the big three-oh. I remember when I was younger, I thought that was so old. Jimmy and Kyla took me to the park after work to hang out and go for a little walk through the woods. I feel like it's been forever since y'all have seen Kyla. She loves going to the park.

Nothing like getting up early on a Saturday and raking your dirt. Haha I hate Continue Reading
