Summery Summary

We met some really charming characters at Disney World,
and watched our garden grow.
(I also had a painting in a show)
Watched fireworks for the 4th.
Ate lots of pancakes!
Went to a cabin in Northern MN (Gordy loves the great outdoors).
I made 6 terrariums (and only 3 have survived).
We saw Jeremy Messersmith in concert
and got his autograph!
Ended summer with a fun trip to the Great Minnesota Get Together.
Hope you had a groovy summer, too!
