It's Great to Be Eight!

It's Great to Be Eight! Here is Elise, my little model for her 8th birthday. We were taking pictures for her baptism announcement. As you look through these pictures I bet you can't tell that it was almost 100 degrees the day we took these. Ha! Lately I have been working on my photography skills and I was lucky enough to take pictures of this girl (she has always been one of my favorite subjects to shoot). I still can't believe she is 8 years old. That means that I have been doing this blog for 8 years, crazy how time flies! Elise, we love what a nice, beautiful and smart girl you have become. Happy Birthday Elise!!!!! We love you! Love, Mommy, Poppa, Carter and Monroe

And now a trip down memory lane...

Fourth of July Weekend!

With the Fourth of July being on a Monday this year that meant there were festivities on Friday, Saturday and Monday. This meant lots and lots of nights of hearing people doing fireworks. We took a quick trip to SLC and then spent the holiday at home with a BBQ, swimming in the backyard and fireworks. Enjoy :)

Happy 4th of July from these kiddos
