wet towels.
dirty flip flops.
babies that smell like chlorine.
days that never end.
no schedule.
banks lake.
fruit stands.
early morning ski runs.
the dam show.
roasting marshmallows at the end of the day. just because.
being tan.

this is what most summer days look like for us...

it's been so hot lately...i hope it's here to stay. {my camera has been acting up lately. thanks for the photos kjrst}

i never knew how much i loved you

...until i had my own daughter. on the day she was born, i loved her so much that i immediately realized how much you loved me. and i was overwhelmed by it.

thank you, mom, for fighting the fight. thank you for remaining with us.

it is my pleasure to have your looks. i only hope that i can have your many other talents...someday. i love you.

my sister, THE BOMB

while i would like to keep my sister's talent a secret {so that i don't have to SHARE her} i just can't hold it in anymore!

last sunday we left church a little early so kjrsten could take pictures of my brood. {and by the way, isla's prayers that night included "...and sorry we didn't stay for all of church..." bless her heart.}

there are like 250 pictures and i love them all so much that i think i will wallpaper my family room with them. it's impossible to narrow down the pictures i like the best. at this moment these are some of my favorites...
