  1. They were all really funny – loved the idea and the list. I liked the pet store and the vegan hippies the best I think. I can’t tell you how many times I tried to fly a kite with the kids. If we finally DO get it in the air, I feel like such a rock star because most of the time it just drags on the ground behind us as we run around like idiots
