Right after Fourth of July, the boys all headed to Neskowin to visit Nana for a few days. As you can see from the pics, they had a terrific time playing outside! I had a hard time sorting through all the cute photos (it’s so pretty there) so there are a lot to look through!

One Month Old

Baby girl turned one month old on July 10. She is such a joy to our family! At three weeks old she started smiling, and is doing so more each day. It’s tricky to catch on photo though, because she smiles at our smiles, and once the camera comes out, it disappears.

We didn’t plan this, but I’m so glad we took this shot with each of our babies. It’s evolved into something pretty cool!

Bathing beauty!

This face!

Tummy time!

Blueberry Season

July means blueberries! We were excited for the season to start so we could head back to Bybee Farms to replenish our blueberry supply. We picked fifteen pounds in one afternoon. As I write this, it’s about time to head back for some more!

Good workers!

Independence Day

Oh boy, I’m getting way behind on blogging again. Summer has been busy – it’s time to get caught up!

Fourth of July was Layla’s first holiday, and we celebrated in our traditional way. We skipped the parade this year so the boys could be first in line for rides at the fair. While Jonathan took the boys out, I stayed with Layla and got her ready for the big day. Here she is admiring her cute outfit in the mirror.

Eventually we caught up with the boys for some of the festivities.

After dinner we went to our neighbor’s house for sparklers and a few small fireworks

Jonathan took Avery and Kieron out for Snoqualmie’s first professional fireworks show. He said it was pretty amazing (they got to sit very close) and the boys loved it!
