None For the Angry One

Asher and Her Asian Friends

Asher and KIeran were so destined to have fun that they met a little girl whose mom worked there and started hopping around on the ” ton tons,” bouncy things seen in the picture in my mom’s post…. Asher, Kieran, and their little friend ran from the dinner table to the pool table and playing on top of the pool table….
