Abi at the Zoo

Well, it’s been almost a year since the last update. A bit slack I know, but life has a way of getting in the way. It’s been an eventful year so far. We’re expecting baby # 2 in early August, so that’s pretty big news! We’ve also finally started building a limestone wall around our […]
