We love to have fun and be silly
July 16th, John and I had a date day. We headed to the Anne Frank Memorial. Hard to believe that this was our first time getting there when this opened in 2002. The memorial is so well thought out and a wonderful place to go to reflect on life, freedom and peace. Highly recommended place to spend a little time.
Beautiful statute of Anne Frank

This one really gives me the chills. I remember the first time I read it many years ago.
I thank the planners, organizers and contributors for this wonder place.
Love this - "Think about what you saw."
Friday, July 17th my Peace Rock Painting Party. A breezy but otherwise perfect evening of fellowship, food, wine, and lots and lots of fun and talking. Thank you dear ladies who came out to paint peace rocks. http://www.peacerocks.org

There was not one rock that looked like another rock
Cathy really got into her work - little blue nose.
Shannon was one messy girl. Her straw technique was so cool.
Connie's rocks were amazing. Even an adorable winking shell.
Sue made the cutest turtle and gave it to me. Thanks.
Vanessa (who I have always called Van-go) did turn out to be a real Van Gogh
Peace, Shalom, Hope, Love

Thanks John for your help. I could never do my projects without him.
This is Shannon's cool straw blowing technique
Every rock was unique like people. We need to embrace our differences if we're every going to live in a peaceful world. Now let's take our rocks and pass them out to help promote peace.
