So tonight, we're going to the Zoo, to play on an amazing playground, to visit with seals and snow monkeys, and to hear our favorite canoeing fellows sing and play under the stars, in the heat. We made a cake, and we'll picnic with dear friends. One of us is far away, having her own adventures with her dear friends, so it's just the two of us.
Because that's how we do summer.
