Last week was filled to capacity with good things....
We watched the traditional July 4th parade in our little town. Always fun, especially when our state championship basketball team drove through as "grand marshals."
Jesse was there with his team. He graduated in June and is heading off to Prairie College in Alberta soon. We'll miss him.
Our friends from Cali came on Sunday for a visit. Rem and Camille are just 2 weeks apart. It was great to meet the new baby girl for the first time (remember this photoshoot? I flew to San Fran at 36 weeks pregnant. That's insanity, I tell ya). The kids played in the yard, we tried to convince our friends of the merits of country life while they endured miserable allergies, we walked, ate blueberries, made blueberry jam, and consumed enough calories of delicious food to last till Christmas. Good, good times.
As our friends headed south, me and my kiddos headed north with my sister and her kiddos to visit my parents. Because it's fantastically fun there.
Because they have a swimming pool there. And a lake. And an all you can eat buffet for every meal. And a grandma and a grandpa who scurry children from activity to activity with smiles on their faces. Bliss.
25 calories of dye-enhanced goodness. Rem will take their word for it. For now.
My cousin Katie is working at Black Lake (where my parents live/work). I was able to do a Senior Portrait Session with Katie in between her lifeguarding duties. Check out the rest of the session here: Alysun Peters Photography
I apologize in advance for this one.
