Random Photo Friday

Happy Friday! Happy June! I hope your summer is off to a good start, my friends. Here is a look back at our week that was.

Suddenly we have a garden!

We see all kinds of beauty out here.
My favorite are those tiny baby chipmunks.
From a distance of course!
But this sight touched my heart.
Mommys of all kinds care for their babies. : )

My sister Margie had a birthday!
We celebrated with cake.
Peyton's Whoopie Pie Cake.
Enough said.

My Mocha's big brother, Kirby.
Our first ever puppy, and Peyton's little shadow.

Have an amazing weekend with your people, my friends!
Still schooling here, but enjoying summer mornings and evenings too.
Thanks for visiting!!!
