Lovely Summer Evenings

Every summer we seem to shift to a very late schedule.  I don't like the sun, (it doesn't like me either), and so we stay in during the day when it's hot and go out during the pleasant evenings.  Here are the kiddos at 9pm jumping away on the ever popular trampoline.  We skipped the bike rides tonight after Claire's dangerous meeting with the driveway yesterday.  She doesn't seem to mind, but it doesn't look pretty.  Her expression isn't either, but you can tell Big O and Ella are having fun.

A Fondness for Florals

I'm always surprised to see what blooms next in the yard, and then try to take pictures of it.  We've got some lovely creamy lilies and sweet little daisies right now in the back.

Official Fourth on the Fifth

We didn't do anything but sparklers, but that's enough :-)  Claire wasn't completely sure if she liked fireworks or not.  I guess with those short arms, it is a lot closer to her face than the rest of us.  She did like the big ones people were shooting into the sky.  The rest of the kids like it all, and Owen wanted more, more, more.
