Summer has come and gone, as of today! Such a busy summer and so many memories stored away under ‘My Pictures’. Can I possibly publish them all? Not a chance, but you’ll get the highlights. Summer started early with the Taskers and Crofts trekking to
The days of June definitely weren’t lazy – the dress ups got a full work-out, swimming, gum-balling, horny-toading, and even a prince posing as a princess kept a houseful of grandkids busy!
