  1. I can’t with some of these!! The deer rescue was so incredible! The glove translation is amazing, as well as the app that prints out the words for hard of hearing. And I had tears for the man that sold out his ice cream cart! What a great day for him! And although I’m not sure I will ever go to Paris, that floating boat-in movie theater is super cool!! (I didn’t see several of these this past month, so thank you!)
