Happy Memorial Day!

As we all know, Memorial Day is about honoring our troops, and having FUN! As the kids get older, I really do want to go to the parades and the memorials and make it a more significant day, but that just wouldn't fly for us right now. So instead we went to Bellevue Park- one of our favorite places in the summertime! We go several times every summer, and it just gets better and better. Plus, it is a PERFECT place for photo-ops, hence the million I am about to show. What can I say- I FINALLY got some decent shots of Claire, so I have to post them!

 You can kind-of see her smile in this one. That is very hard to catch.

 Very proud of herself for climbing all the way up.
 She's so beautiful!
 I'm so mad at Ben for closing his eyes- otherwise this is such a great picture!!! Maybe we can photo shop sunglasses on him?
UPDATE: My friend Becky put sunglasses on Ben! Woo-hoo!!! This looks SOOOO much better! Thank you Becky!!!

 In this picture you can almost see Claire's boo-boo on her lip. Yesterday while taking a bath, she fell against the tub with her whole face and got a nasty bloody nose and split lip. Poor girl- she was just gushing blood. Luckily, because it was in the tub, the blood stayed there and didn't ruin any clothes or anything. Also luckily, she didn't break her nose- it was bleeding so bad I thought she might have. But, after a little Cat In the Hat, she was back to her usual dare-devil self.
 Claire isn't looking, but at least everybody's eyes are open.


  1. You DO have beautiful girls. I love Claire with the pig. Priceless. :)

  2. Love the photos. LOVE the hair!!! You've got it goin' on!!

  3. We should have coordinated! We were at Belleview Park yesterday also. How funny. Looks like you had a lot of fun!
