Vacation, part 3: family

We definitely missed our California cousins this summer, but Nathan, Addison and Natalie had a great time together! Here are a couple pix of them enjoying one another's company:I insisted that we get a family photo while we were at the lake. In dozens of shots, we never had all 4 of us smiling nicely and not blinking. This was the best one--and while it's not bad, I wish Nathan wouldn't have been pouting!The kids loved playing with baby Brylee--what a sweetie!Here's a fun shot of the group gearing up for fireworks on the 4th--this includes Eric's parents, brother and sister, and two (wonderful!) aunts.I have two more vacation posts to go--one about our anniversary getaway, and the other about our lake activities.

Woah, your kids are looking so much older!!

That's a pretty good shot of the family by the lake! Congrats on getting one. It's hard to capture little children. =)

Our kiddos just had fun with some cousins as well ~ the time was great but so very short!

I love how the sun is shining on your family pic! =)

Thanks for sharing these pics, Carrie. The one of Natalie and Brylee is adorable. Also, I think the family picture is good, even though Nathan is not smiling.
It must have been cold on the 4th of July. It looks like you all had jackets on.
Glad you had a good time.

Love, Grandma
