Hanging with Friends

posted in: Large Family | 3

Just a few photos from times with our friends Greg and Merriann (our partners over at Large Family Reviews) and their adorable troupe of kids. Sometimes we get together to make YouTube videos, sometimes we play games…but we always do plenty of laughing and eating. And coffee drinking.children-playing-1
