A Pioneer Play Date

A travel blog entry by dixiej


... boring is that? I feel like we've found some more good friends with these two as they're easy going and the stroll and chat was just, well, easy. The images Deena made and posted of us were incredible. They are both very talented photographers. Check out her web page at She's on Facebook too.
