OMG that picture is hilariously awesome. I love Mia's pose. Girl is working it!

We didn't do any memorialy stuff 'cause we're losers who don't have any friends here. But we did have a lovely weekend anyway. Last day of school Friday was great and the rest of the weekend was spent either at various parks or watching Gummi Bears and Bill Nye the Science Guy. You know, the classics.
