4th of July!

 last 4th of July was spent at the lake camping with a 1month old, so needless to say this year was quite different!  We were blessed to have my brother, sister in law and two nephews in town, as well as my Aunt Reena!  Emerson loves any and all family members, so it was great to see her interact with people she had only seen via Facetime and Skype for so long.
a few highlights of their trip: we went to a baseball game, accompanied by fireworks afterward, we took at trip to Reptile Gardens, and we also went to the lake! 
It was a great holiday week/weekend spent with family :)

my awesome brother and his sweet boy, Everett ;)

Everett was such a trooper!  he was up late past his bedtime, but he loved to watch the fireworks.

There was an Independence Day festival at our downtown square, and Brandon and I stopped by on our way to my parents house and snagged these hats and headband for the kids.  They didn't wear them for too long, but it made for a fun photo op none the less!


in true Emerson fashion, she had two outfits for the day :)
This girl LOVES to read!  Aunt Reena was a trooper and would crawl on the ground and read with her, no matter how many times they read the same book in a row (it was a lot)



playing in the rocks at the park with cousins :)

at Reptile Gardens

My in-laws have a pontoon boat, so we are fortunate to have lake access fairly frequently.  The weather this summer hasn't been the warmest, so we snatch up any opportunity we can to get on the water!  Emerson loves to splash and play in the lake, so it always makes for a good time.

We filled the live well with a bit of water and let her sit in there and play for a bit. it was a big hit!
