A Day in the Life of the Lion Family (Chaos Edition)

Ever have one of those days that is so ridiculous that you just have to laugh, because if you don’t you might cry? I started writing this post expecting to document a typical day for the Lion family, but what I got instead was an almost comically horrible day.
