Fun on the 4th


















Fiona relaxes in the pool, Daniel and Sophia have water wars, and we attempt to get a record number of people into the hot tub. After tons of fun, we had an indoor picnic of burgers, hot dogs, watermelon and the like. The rain held off until the evening, but the kids still got to light up sparklers after the storm. All in all, a fine Fourth of July. Except for the fact that I left my camera outside during the storm, a fact I didn't realize until I went to find it this morning to take a photo of the four cousins sleeping peacefully together. The last photo, therefore, is a cautionary tale -- make sure your camera is the first item to be brought inside if you live in Florida in the summer.

Happy 4th of July to you all as well!
It looks like you all had a great time. Sorry about the weather and the camera. :-( I can't believe how big Fiona is getting. What a bunch of cute kids!!!
Hugs and kisses for everyone.

What beautiful shots of the children! Looks like you all had a great holiday. So sorry about your camera, reminds me of when Dad took a swim with his cell phone in his pocket--guess is runs in the family :) Love Mom
