1, We had a lovely fourth. Quiet. We are always the only ones left on the block, everyone else gone to visit family in other parts of the state, other states, or just off to festivals that end in fireworks. The kids are still too young for a fireworks show that starts at ten.
2. Bike rides. 3. Sorry, buddy, we really should get you your own helmet. 4. Alla may have fallen out of that sandbox earlier in the week, so with all the sand out, we just let the rainwater fall in and Fisher found this just splendid.5. Can't you just see her saying, Come on, Buddy, don't splash me!6. Once the boy was in bed, we broke out the sparklers. 7. Once again, still a bit wary of those sparklers.8. But she warmed up pretty quickly.9. I love this one. Completely out of focus, just her running with one toward me, for me. 10. And the very next morning we shared with Matt + Shelly, Dane, and their newest love. Congrats, guys!
