Lara got a clean bill of health from her doctor, so no more broken ankle! After that, we needed to swing by Lowe’s for more stuff, then off to get the truck washed. It needed a little love after shuttling the two kiddos around.

A quick tour of the office, and a traffic jam on the way home. After that, chaos ensues. Ryan decides the carpet needs a bath, then teases Lara by bringing her one cracker at a time. Oh, and he decides to wear his pullups penguin style.
Typical Tuesday with a typical American family. Lara is still hobbling around with her broken ankle, and Ryan is getting into all kinds of mischief. We just moved to a new town and have new jobs.
