  1. Where is that park? It looks beautiful. I’m always hunting up new places to visit in the summer.

  2. Phew! I need to sit down for a rest after reading about your week. What fun you all had. Seeing the girls with boxes on their heads reminds me of the many Christmases when my kids were young and boxes and wrapping paper proved more popular than the gifts contained. Happy memories!
