For the love of rollercoasters


This past week your Dad and I celebrated our 3 years anniversary. There were long discussion about what we should do to celebrate, but we decided that we would settle for some good clean fun! So we booked ourselves into the Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel for the night and took a day off…

Continuously Surprised

My little cleaning Monster
