Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans out there! What a beautiful day it is here in Portland, Oregon! It's been a nice and lazy day. No parades for us, though we did attend a yummy pancake breakfast at Aaron's parents' church this morning.
And to tell you the truth, I had no intention of picking up my camera today, but then I heard Jane playing in her bedroom and after seeing this, I couldn't resist.
How my baby loves My Little Ponies! I love capturing moments like this, when the kids are completely unaware of my presence. These are the most beautiful pictures to me. Unplanned, unposed and perfect.
Unfortunatley soon after I snapped this shot she noticed me and hid under a blanket. But that's okay because it was pretty cute, too. I'd show you a picture of her under the said blanket but my computer has decided to show me some attitude and I can't access it. Sigh.
These will have to do for now...
But our day has consisted more than just ponies and toys. Blueberry picking kept the girls busy for quite some time.
And I love how excited the girls were to put up our flag for the big day!
And on days like today, when the sun is toasty and warm, a good old water gun fight seems like the perfect thing to do!
Except Jane didn't want any part of it!
So I had her help me make a Fourth of July bouquet. I can't remember what these red flowers are called but don't they remind you of fireworkds exploding in the sky??
And I'd say Avery's chalkart just about sums up our feelings about today. :)
Yes, may God bless America!
