My sister let Bella attempt to spend the night. She had a blast (even though she didn't officially sleep over) and fit right in with our wild children.
Here's another shot of the gang
Although it may appear that Bella is in the process of being ignited, I can assure you dear sister that she was safely on the lawn...she was going back to her assigned spot as I snapped this picture!
Bella rejoined us on the 5th (bright and early I might add) for some swimming fun with the cousins. Yes, I know her swimsuit is on backwards, and so did she, but she thought it was "just fine". Who am I to argue?? My kids are usually naked!
Here's Clara in her new "cheese" pose. If I tell her to say "cheese" she holds her hands out like that. I'm hoping it's just a phase. Although to look on the bright side, at least she's holding still! Here's Ruby...or trouble as she should have been named. (Notice the hose in her hand!!) You know what they say about the baby of the family...
I've started to worry about the absence of Noah in my pictures. Being the oldest, he is always doing his own thing...I think I may have to dedicate my 50th post to just him. :)
Check back soon for more pics and the details of Bella's birthday party.
God is good. All the time.
