a happy fourth

running through sprinklers, his new favorite game.


benji stops to smell the flowers and the rocks and the sticks and the leaves.


cutie pie cousins at the backyard barbeque. not pictured: dan and siblings taking turns cranking the wooden ice cream maker and then timing how long they could keep their hands in the freezing icy waters. this crowd is nothing if not competitive. leave it to dan to make any chore more fun.


exploring grandma's garden. always content with a car in hand.


campin' cousins. mine, the most cooperative.


b and me. the great outdoors are always greater with family circling the campfire.


pile up on uncle dan. a perfect activity while we wait until dark.


lined up in pajamas, ready for the firework display. i was happy watching it through my viewfinder. this weekend i fooled around with my new camera and all its fancy settings.


hope you too had a happy fourth of july weekend.

I especially love that big smile while your boy is running through the sprinklers. You got a great shot there! I can't wait to hear more about your new camera.

so glad you're rockin' that new camera! love the benji photos (especially those with car in hand—we love "car-buddies" at our house too). what a cutie!

Benji is getting so big! That picture of you two camping is such a keeper. You are adorable as always. So excited to hear about your new camera!

I'm so glad you had a fun Fourth! I love the competition to see who could keep their hand in the freezing water the longest--I would for sure not win! I wish there was pictures of that!

How fun that Gabi was in town too!

That first picture of Benji is too cute for words. And it is adorable that he is always carrying around a little car.

oh man. i can't even handle how big that boy is getting. he looks so independent running through that sprinkler! (which is the most amazing photo, btw.) but i'm glad to see he's not too old to sit in mom's arms. what a cutie.
