Cozy by campfire 🔥 ...

Who’s ready for crisp fall nights making s’mores by a warm campfire? ⛺️🔥 Photo captured by: @joshua.allen_visuals ...

Little Savannah worked with Callie on a busy Saturday night. She insisted to work in the store instead of playing on her last night with us. She learned how to run the cash register and stock up the pop cooler. Such a hard little worker and all she wanted for payment was an ice cream!! 🍦 #workforalmostfree #futureemployee #minicallie ...
