Who else is having a great summer? Our days are spent swimming, crafting, playing games, building forts, etc. Everything a summer should be. But in between all of the fun, there is a lot of downtime. When not playing with her dolls or reading in her free time, my K loves to be on the […]

If you think visiting the set of Marvel’s Ant-Man would be totally awesome, then you would be completely correct! But not always in the ways that you might expect.
