Last year the 5.9 of us took some pictures on the 4th of July. And in other years other amounts of people combinations.
2010!! Boy does Smiley remind me of Gracie
But it is something I like would like to keep going, portraits on the 4th.
After the morning parade, some food truck lunch, and playing games at the jubilee we were dripping hot. I would be happy to say I sweated off a few pounds due to the heat and our few mile hike but after that lunch I think I might be +1. Oh well. It was so hot the kids started crying when they climbed into the bouncy houses. Ouch, ouch ouch it what I kept hearing and Faith just refused. They were hot and cranky, and hungry again. We went home to take some showers and cool off.
Afterwards we got ready for our backyard pictures.
This was the best I could get with the heat and squirmy kids. Maybe I will do a post of the outtakes or just keep them and laugh.
And then we have my five firecrackers.
Gracie 11 months and 2 weeks. Her first 4th!
I love dressing my little girls.
They are so dainty and pretty and their clothes, their over abundance of beautiful clothes are so sweet. I wish some of their most special outfits they could wear more than once. I really loved their 4th of July outfits here (because we all had 3! outfit changes that day) I was speaking with another friend of mine and she said who cares they can wear the outfit more than once. I was convinced by the end too but I kept think when can you wear a 4th of July outfit more than once? Memorial Day maybe? But I saw no problem with letting them all wear their outfits this Sunday to church. I washed them put them aside and got up early today to showered everyone. Only to find out....church was Cancelled this morning! Yes. A water pipe broke overnight and they had a mess on their hands. What a way to start a busy Sunday. That means notify the 800 some regular attendees every Sunday morning and a urgency to clean up and dry because tonight Phil Keaggy is there for a concert. Oh well, so they did not get to wear their outfits again. At least not today. I might just have to find another time and place for the kids to look patriotic. I have a few ideas.
