Our (mis)adventures during the weekends.

The Weekend In Pictures: Easter 2015 Edition

It’s been a good year since the last time I’ve done this. Cydney had her Spring Fling show at school where she was Rosa Parks, she saw the Easter Bunny, danced in the Sunday School presentation at church, and looked amazing all through it. Enjoy.

The Weekend In Pictures: Return of the Weekend In Pictures Edition

The last month or two haven’t been quite adventurous. Well they have but in a different kind of way. This Friday Cydney and I were all over the city taking care of business and filmed the second documentary that we’ll be featured in. Enjoy and I’ll definitely keep you all posted when these things are released.
