As you can see from this first picture alone, our 4th of July pictures were HORRID! oh well, we had such a great time in Utah visiting friends, going to a wedding, and having a 4th party with Ben's brother.
Lincoln's favorite parts: waking up to friends every morning, his dragonfly he got painted on his face, his first race ever...and of course, fireworks.
Booker's favorite part....Gracie, cousins, his fish on his eye, his race and...fireworks.
Maizie's favorite...playing, eating, sleeping..and maybe not so much the duck pond, or should I say mud pond she fell into face first..yuck..and of course, loved the fireworks.
I loved being with our friends (thanks, Remingtons), and family..and I loved making Maizie's dress in 20 minutes..from 2-50 cent bandanas..and of course the fireworks..
We've had a fun time this summer taking quick little trips to different celebrations..weddings a plenty and family trips galore..the kids have LOVED it! They love being around their cousins, friends and family and have cried EVERY time we leave.
A few weeks ago we were up in Salt Lake and had a great time taking the kids to Temple Square. I tried to take a few pics of them together.. I always wish they would turn out perfect (even one of them!). But to be honest, everytime I look at these pictures, they remind me of real life..and that is pretty darn great.:)
Yes, Maizie is the queen...
and doens't take ANYTHING from ANYONE..
They are pretty stinkin cute and I feel absolutely blessed to be their mom.
