so, so good.
Maddie, Soleil and I started our morning with first some creating,
then a trip to the neighborhood bakery for various sweet somethings to break our fast.
we were going to watch the parade!
was big on tossing candy.
which absolutely warranted jumps for joy and title of "The Greatest Parade Ever!!!". :)
I was just happy to take pictures of these sweet, funny, charm-my-socks-off baby girls.
and fancy choppers and flags.
I 'spect that's really all a Mama Pirate Gril needs.
an' maybe a Jolly Roger flyin' in the backyard and a glass of luxe ale, of course.
back at home,
things ain't too bad, either.
a new pirate plank.
an' first cherries.
Dear God. Please help me to keep from dropping my camera in the pool while I take this (beer-in-one-hand-and-camera-in-the-0ther-while-floating-in-the-pool) shot. Yrs truly always, Me.
Yes!! :) I never doubted. (And I suspect That, more than anything, my Friends, is the secret. :) )
after a thoroughly summertime supper,
we packed up water and a blanket in the wagon and headed down the road a ways for some cotton candy and a snowcone.
and a fantastic fireworks display.
well met, summer.
