the fourth in film

We had a lovely Fourth.  I ran my race in the morning (more like crawled) and joined my neighbors for the best seats on the block to watch the parade.  Later, we met at the "spot" to eat & watch the fireworks.  and our crowd, which usually consists with cousins, second cousins and probably even third cousins turned out to be just a few.  It's always fun to have our goofy little family together.  And knowing Dane & Brit will be moving to NY at the end of the summer makes these moments even more treasured.  My mom wanted to take a good family photo, since it's rare we find all seven of us together in the same moment, what she got was were the two above :).  Us just being us (particularly Brandon being Brandon).  I think she should blow them up and hang them above the mantle for everyone to see, in all their true and blurry glory.


  1. I love your photos, they made me smile. Your family looks happy, don't take that for granted! Haha, I love your blog, so gorgeous. I'm a new follower, stop by my corner of the internet if you get a chance!

  2. That picture of Brandon hugging you is beyond adorable.
