Camera Shy

Wait a minute. Where did July 4th go? Has it been that long?

Our celebration was a bit smaller this year than in years past, but it was just as much fun as it always is. Once again, we went to my parents' house, and there was no shortage of camera hams.

I set the camera up in the grass for this picture, but I have no idea what we were laughing at!

I hope your July fourth celebrations were fun! Bre, we sure missed having you here with us this year. But just think… at least you didn't have to deal with this:

    Fun, fun! For the first time, I can see the resemblance of Bre in Sophie (tp 11) where she’s looking down with the sparkling sparkler. Enjoy a bit of heat relief and stitching for the weekend!

  • Lynn

    The girls seem to change every time I see them!
    The pics are just fabulous!! Sometimes I wish I had a few camera hams around here. No-one gets excited when I pull out the camera.
    It looks like you had a super day with lots of fun!

    I love how their spirit practically seems to jump off the screen. What an amazing series of pictures – you literally took us right there. So happy you shared this moment…they grow way too fast.
