But in the spirit of honesty, the race cars we had going at the house last weekend were not the Nascar variety, but rather Matchbox. "Hi, my name is Q, I'm now … Continue reading Race cars and Tattoos
I went to Budapest last week for our girls' softball tournament. The weather was glorious most of the time, I mean look at that sky! This was the view from my hotel by the way, not too shabby.
