Getting our Ride On at Kings Dominion

On Monday, we got to tagalong with Grandad for his work’s annual company outing to Kings Dominion.  Aunt Melissa and Cousin O were also in attendance for what was a hot hot day of fun in the sun. The double stroller was well worth the expense to cart around our crew plus our water...

The weather wasn’t perfect, but we...
