fireworks

Fireworks. What’s the big deal anyway? I mean, they are a giant explosion of color and light. Wait. color and light? Two of my favorite things! Not to mention the energy, thrill and excitement surrounding every fireworks celebration. You guessed it… I love fireworks. I could watch them for hours and love every single minute of it. of course I would be singing at the top of my lungs… baby, you’re a firework!

 

 

Alice and Fletcher

 

Alice and Fletcher are growing up so fast! It seems like Alice should be her brother’s age, but instead she is going on 16. This girl has some spunk – never a dull moment. She makes everyone laugh, and is a great storyteller (ahem… the treehouse). I love catching these quick moments as they grow up. Cute kids. Wonderful family.

The Faircloth Family

I truly love this family. They are genuine, fun, and strong in their faith – such an inspiration! Little Miss E is smart, adventurous, determined and has the perfect timing with her humor (I swear she’s going on 14). I am so glad I was able to spend a little bit of time with them during their last visit to Iowa. Colorado sure is lucky… we miss them!

When you’re this little and this cute – it doesn’t matter if you flash the world while going down the slide…

 

the williams family

how cute is this family? very cute. kelsey and i went to the same high school (go bulldogs!), so we’ve known each other for many years. they were kind enough to let me tag along to center grove orchard to capture an afternoon in the life of the williams family. maybe you’ve read some of their writing before, as they share many words of inspiration and the most stylish looks on their blogs… take a look!
