First Family Fun

Sarah Buzaglo

If you were offered a chance to live in a house with a private swimming pool, bowling alley, freezers stocked with over fifty flavors of ice cream, and a private helicopter available day and night, would you take it? But imagine that the offer included a set of strict rules: you can’t ever leave the house whenever you want, and when you do, a team of security guards will follow you everywhere you go. And while you’re out, people will be talking about and taking pictures of everything you do.
