The weekly ramble: where I blog like it’s 2004. I love this picture. Wow. How did we get here? For the last few years, FishBoy17 has towered over the others so they were no longer the “stair step” kids they had once been. But, FishBoys 13 and 12 have had growth spurts, so it looks […]

The Weekly Ramble

FishBoy13

The weekly ramble: where I blog like it’s 2004. FishPapa and I just got back from a 36-hour trip to Ontario, CA. Not, Ontario, Canada, but Ontario, California.
