October 14th, our little girl, Mrs. Sayuri, turned four!
Our favorite place to be when it’s warm and sunny out is enjoying the outdoors. Mr. Happy Feet is always asking to go “outside”.
Mrs. Sayuri describes our walks around the property as “going on an adventure”. During the rainy season things get overgrown pretty quickly and it starts feeling like we are living in a jungle.
