4th of July

Thought I would share a couple pics from the 4th. I'll probably have some more after this weekend because we are having our church 4th of July picnic Sunday. We had a great 4th.
This first picture of my girls cracks me up, I really just wanted to get a picture of Isabella all dressed up -- not that I didn't want one of Amelia, but I thought there would be no way that I could get them to sit together, I thought she would either crawl away, try to grab the camera, etc. Instead I told Isabella to go stand so I could get a picture of her and right before I snapped it Amelia walked over, sat down and grinned. :) (Of course, neither one is looking at me, they're looking at Daddy)

I love this picture of Amelia and Kenny -- I'm not sure who adores who more!
After afternoon naps, we went over to our friends Randy and Andrea's house and then went swimming, had a cookout, and shot off a couple fireworks. This is Isabella's little friend Makenna -- I at first couldn't get them to pose until I asked them to hug and pose like they are always doing. We will go out and they will hug each other like this and say to us, take a picture (of course its when we don't have a camera) and then they will try to walk while they are hugging each other -- so cute!!

Everyone enjoyed the sparklers, I love the pic of Amelia looking at the sparkler, I left the flash off on purpose, so it may be a little blurry, but it was on purpose. We didn't get to go see any big fireworks because this is how Isabella watched the small ones Daddy was doing. She loves to see the "pretty fireworks" but doesn't want to hear them. And yes, that is her nose smashed against the window -- sorry Andrea, you probably have a mark on your window from that one. :)

I can't believe how big Amelia is getting, either! I love Isabella's big smile in that first picture. You did an awesome job on their outfits! They look so adorable!!! Sounds like you guys had a fun day!

Thanks for leaving a comment. I am very new and very green at blogging, but it is a blast so far. Actually, reading your blog inspired me to give it a try. Your girlies are just precious. I laughed my butt off over Amelia's "captivity" while camping. At least she hasn't resorted to biting to get free!

Steph, Bite your tongut -- because she has started biting some. :( Yesterday the girls were in the stroller and Isabella yelled and I look and Amelia has grabbed her fingers, stuck them in her mouth and was biting them. UGH! This is not going to be fun. :)

The girls look absolutely adorable. I just love the outfits. And on the biting thing, if you bite back(not hard) they will stop. That is how I broke Cody and Casey. Sounds like you had a lot of fun on the 4th.
