Joining you from Multitudes on Mondays. Thanks for sharing your list of gratitudes. Love Deborah's sweet smile and the extra large marshmellows.

Great pics Anna. Mimi was watching skateboarding on TV the other day (she was pressing buttons on the remote) and it held her attention longer than any other show. Perhaps she and Deborah will have more in common than we know.

Mimi's been saying Deborah Mimi's friend quite a bit lately.

You guys really look like you make the most of the summer months.
