{ellie girl}

I am completely addicted to this sweet baby girl.  Those curls, that smile, her smell.  I can't keep my hands off of her.  Sorry Jenni :)PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


Even though we flew in late the night before, there was no better way to start our UT vacation off with a day at Lagoon!  My kids just love that place :)

it was so fun to run into Kelsey and Kiley LInd!

as always, we luuuuuuv 4th of July here in Virginia.  There's no better setting than Waterford Village with the flag-lined streets, the old cars, and the patriotic spirit of all the locals.
also, we love spending the day with some of our favorite people.  i wish i could explain how much all these kids love each other.  my kids consider these cousins their brothers and sisters.
what a fun time~
The night before the 4th, we had a crazy storm pass thru, so Waterford ended up cancelling their fireworks show.  Lovettsville still had theirs, so we watched from there!

And onto the parade the next morning....
