  • Dennis Conrad

    Our sweet baby is here! Little Dennis made his speedy arrival on March 14th and we’ve been spending every possible moment since then cuddling and resting.

    We’re gearing up for the busiest time of the year as we prepare for the holidays and upcoming birthdays. We’re also back to planning for our long awaited kitchen remodel.
