Sunday we went to church, then Ev (my husband) took Ben (our 3 year old) to a mud bogg. I wasn’t in the mud bogg mood, so I stayed home with Knox (the 4 month old). That night we went to a friends house and roasted marshmallows & listened to the concert from afar. Our kids played and a good time was had by all.
