seriously love these kids! my heart was happy.
i totally forgot to do the annual parade down my parents' street so we did it back at our place. no one seemed to mind. later that evening we watched amazing fireworks from our front porch(we usually watch them from our bedroom, but found that we had a better view from the front.). all the kids were asleep, except emma. the girl knew to wait for the good stuff.
sadly, thursday morning our friends had to leave. i hate goodbyes! we grabbed asher out of bed and decided to get a group shot. here's my new favorite shot: the setup.
and then this followed. i love you dear friends! come back ANY time. there's always room!
