Hello + Goodbye

This past month, Jenna and her family moved to California! We miss her terribly, even though we talk Small Fry and regular bestie stuff everyday, but are so happy for their new adventure.

Cal’s 3rd Birthday

cal-party1

By Emily. My little guy, Callum, turned three at the end of July and when I thought about what I wanted to remember most about him this year, it had to be his little dialect. He has his own way of saying just about everything and it brings a smile to my face everyday. So why not throw party all about exactly who he is at this moment.
