in summary....

The perfect days of not knowing exactly what day it is or what time it is are slipping by quickly.  June came and went and we are well into July.  Since there has been so much fun to be had, writing down some of the memorable times has been a little scarce.  Picture taking has not been lacking, however.  

I have never had more peerless times at the zoo.  Could baby elephant Zuri be any cuter!?  Two trips particularly stand out.  Perfect parking spot, mild sunny weather, marveled at the exotic bird show (if you have not seen it it is worth going and it's free!), watched Caroline wave over and over to her fans from
the merry go round.
The second time was take-your-breath-away windy, ALL of the animals were out due to lack of heat, watched the leopard pace back and forth like we were going to be his prey.












We also attended the Beckstrom family reunion at This is the Place Park, admired chalk art and Caroline 
perfecting her dance moves on her rock stage, enjoyed taking in the Arts Festival, made a T-shirt quilt for Adam, and sang yet more rounds of Happy Birthday to my sweet, positive, hardworking, cherished husband and our spirited, animated, and winsome little Caroline.

You have some really great pictures. I'd love it if you'd throw some of the ones of the girls into my e-mail when you have nothing else to do. When I blogsnatch them from you, the files are very tiny.

Awesome pictures! I'm glad you're having such a fun summer!

Wowzers.....the girls are growing up before our eyes. I absolutely LOVE that picture of Gae and the girls. You need to frame that one Gae. I'm really going to go through withdrawl when you guys are gone. Lucky me that I get to fly back when you go. That will help!!
