Friends and Other Fun Stuff

This page has not seen an update in over three years! Can you imagine? By instituting the "Picture of the Day" for both Alex and Teagan, I feel we've been keeping up in some way over that time. Nonetheless, there are some pictures that got lost or were passed over or the daily update that might better be served here.
