recently / fourth of july



+ the mammoth apricot tree in our backyard. jam, anyone?
+ fourth of july festivities & fireworks. and cotton candy. hooray.
+ pinterest inspired watermelon star fruit salad.
+ i love the mountains, i love the rolling hills.
+ chloe teaches dan a few chords; singing around the campfire is big in this family.
+ our annual family camp out; 32 campers from 3 months to 65 years old.
+ the boys pal around together. (the downpour of rain may have been their favorite part!)
+ the girlies bust out their guitars and play like their mamas taught them. so cute.
+ hiking cecret lake with the littles and the preggers. (37 weeks!!)
+ gorgeous scenery all around. sleeping in a tent was so worth it.
+ fourth of july has definitely become my favorite holiday.

I agree with everyone else..you look so darling and I can't believe you are 37 weeks...you obviously don't turn into a linebacker like I do.

I guess we won't see you in Sun Valley :-(

i can't believe you were camping at 37 weeks! i could barely move at 37 weeks :) we are getting ready to move back to salt lake and although i hate the moving process, seeing your mountain pictures and what we have to look forward to makes it a little better :)

your annual family camp outs always look like sooooo much fun.
i am actually not much of a camper and haven't been camping for almost 10 years but seeing your pictures, makes me want to pack my backpack and go out to have some camp fun. =)

You make life look so pretty. :) I have been going back now and then to really old posts and am just impressed by you over and over. Your planning and staying on top of things while seeming relaxed skills are very admirable. I am so not those things, darn it! :) Anyway, just saying hi.
(Collette - in case the "Lettie" threw you off again)
