- The kiddie pool on the lawn. (When I was putting sun screen on everyone, Anna Mae asked if black skin needed sun screen as I slathered it on Leon and Aliou. "Not, really," I said, "but they want what everyone else is getting.")
- Gianna launching bubbles via the bubble machine while everyone pops them with water guns.
- Cindy's Garfield collections is an ever popular feature of a visit to Dearma's.
- Michael at work on the plumbing
- Huck and I all tuckered out after the Tippetts left (We were actually trying to watch Finding Nemo, but we both fell asleep.)
- There are no pictures of Mary Autumn, but she was nevertheless a sweet, quiet presence.

Work & Play
The family handyman arrived yesterday, and 6 Tippetts and Huckle came along with him to visit Dearma. While Michael dealt with plumbing and electrical problems, I played with the kids . . . err well, I kept up with the kids. Here are some pictures that show the action.
