bugs, shades, and a shitty selfie

 We received our first insect pet today. "She" is a caterpillar Brandon has named "Butterfly."  Cruisin' Made Steve snap an iPhone pic of the sunset on the way home from dinner last night. How cliché. I tried to convince Brandon that Butterfly would prefer to sleep outside tonight, but he told me she was scared.  Holden... Continue Reading →
