More from while we were gone day 3
More from my niece Skylar Ashley who flew in to stay with our children while we were to be gone on an Alaskan cruise. She was kind enough to send me some stories to share with you. Her first day she had quite the scare. Day 2 she was terrorized by two small boys. Day… [continue reading]
