―Francis McReary

PlotEdit

It has been nearly ten years since the death of the siblings' biological father. When Maureen takes her kids and their friends out bowling, she meets and falls in love with a nice young man named Hector Wilson. Seeing that if Maureen and Hector marry eachother, this will give the siblings a new father, which makes all five of them excited.
