celebrating America

Star cookies. Grand parade. Stadium of Fire. Carrie Underwood. Sparkler cakes made by Grandmas (yes, both of them did one!). Playing with cousins. A scavenger hunt. Wow - it was a great birthday party for America!

I kinda sorta maybe broke my thumb.
Danged double jogger stroller hinge thingy.
Hence, lack of postings.
drumroll please.

Is that not one of the greatest moments in life EVER?!


  1. I love your hair like that, reminds me of when we first met, only a little calmer :) Love you guys!!

  2. I hope your thumb heals soon, nothing is like having a thumb out of service, there is so much you need your thumb for.
    Ella is walking, that is awesome!

  3. I was so bummed that we missed Stadium of Fire this year!! Glad you got to go, though. Hooray Ella, I can't believe she is walking, you are gonna have your hands really full now!!! Miss you guys, can't wait to see you at the end of the month!

  4. Must be said: you take the COOLEST pictures.

    Also must be said: I really want to eat that cake.

  5. I love your pictures sooo much!! Hooray for Ella! So sorry to hear about your thumb!! That must have really hurt!

  6. Aw, I'm sorry about your thumb- I broke my toe early in the summer- those little injuries can hurt like the dickens!
    We're in our new house? Ready to play? ;)

  7. You always have such great angles for your photos, I love the way you see things!

    How was Stadium of Fire? I really wanted to go.

    That's a great picture of you and your newly walking toddler!

  8. P.S. I'm sorry about your thumb, that must make everything difficult!


Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
