Our Week in Pictures--Lots of Them

We've had a nice start to summer. How about you? I've taken a walk several days so far. These photos of the girls are taken 4 or 5 blocks from our house.

Alex was experimenting with the camera and I really like this one.

My friends Carla, Lucy & Patty celebrated my birthday with me on a girls' night out.
