Wonderfully slow, sleepy Saturdays. These are what dreams are made of. At least the dreams of sleep-deprived parents who do too much go, go, go and not enough stop and smell the pancakes.

Aside from when she went into the water, Beany proudly donned that floppy hat and oversized sunglasses the entire time. Seriously! She looked like an old-timey movie star, and she loved…
