We saw pictures of people, trees, the earth, and even a camouflaged giraffe eating leaves from a tree.  Some people even took time to enjoy the beautiful day by enjoying a good book.

Join us for storytime this Tuesday (February 2) at 10:30.  We will have a special guest from the Dental Alliance to share proper dental care techniques with us.  She has a GIANT set of teeth for practicing and a fun story.  (Everyone who attends receives a special gift!)
