Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 5, Day 4

Post by DadofTwins »

As if I didn't have enough problems, this weekend is the Twins' 9th birthday, which means they're hosting their first ever slumber party.

I plan to hide.

As a good friend of mine might say, Oof dah.

ETA: Reminder that there is an RQ in this set related to R5D2's 12-pointer.
