Swingin' good time

We did a little family outing one Saturday - picnic at the park, playground time, and a little beach time.  

She loved her first time in the swing!

Jared's snail

Jared found a little buddy.  He didn't want to hold him directly, so he put him on a cherry plum.  Pretty interesting little creature... both of them.  :)

more red, white, and blue...

...but mostly red.  Love my reds and blond.  Luckily no one has blue hair.  They dressed up patriotic last Sunday (Alex was out of town), so of course I had to snap a few pictures.  

This skirt was a baby shower gift, which paired nicely with some blue bloomers for the 4th.  Babies can get away with showing their bloomers!  Of course, her big blue eyes go well with her outfit too.

4th of July

We started off the day with German pancakes and bacon.  I was debating whether to do German pancakes, French toast, or Belgian waffles to celebrate America's independence... or should we have gone with English muffins??   Ha ha.  

We were pretty lazy most of the day (besides Alex, who canned peaches).  We had pizza for dinner and cupcakes for dessert. And of course, we watched the fireworks.  Owen was scared at the beginning, but by the end was talking about how cool it was.  We were close to the action, so it was loud.  But even Savannah   seemed fascinated.  

And we took some pictures...

family portait via self-timer... not too bad.

Post-cupcake sillies...
