Love this. Great beach pic, lovely! My sis, in LA, always made the kids laugh by "shaking the grumpy's out of them": turning them upside down and shaking them as they laughed and giggled. We still do modified versions now that they are SO big! Nice memory! Love M

Thanks for reminding me of merlefest... hopefully by then I won't be coughing my lungs out. gross.

Lori, it was great meeting you and Abe at Messob. I bought the Pink hair stuff that you recommended, I have yet to try it though! Hopefully we will meet again when you are visiting!
