My dad sent me these pictures to aid in my story! Hilarious, at the very least.
My first (and favorite) nephew turned 1 today! I can't believe how fast time flies. I sent my brother & sister-in-law some khaki overalls that have pineapples on them with a matching hat. He will look like a tiny island man. I'm sure they're thrilled to have them because you can never have enough khaki.… Continue reading Baby Arlo and My Blind Uncle Bob
