I love this picture!

I took this picture last week while Alyssa was at camp, and just love it. I only wish she could have been in it, too. I know it's not as good as Melanie's work , but I think she might even like it too!
I'm SO excited because I got a new camera tonight.......the Canon EOS Rebel XSI. My first SLR. So be prepared for lots of pictures in the future on my blog.....I have to put them somewhere!!
If anyone has any good tips, I'm always up for suggestions, Thanks!

Another day at the beach!

This time it wasn't at the ocean, though, it was at the "Great Lake"! (one of them, anyway). We met up with Kendra, one of my best friends since 4th grade - we won't talk about how many years we have actually known each other - and our families had so much fun hanging out, going out to eat, and out for ice cream. She has 5 kids (her oldest stayed home, but she had her niece with her), and my 3 were with us, so we got quite a few looks with all of our kids walking around! Our daughters Alyssa and Cassie have become the best of friends, they are only 2 months apart in age. It is so fun seeing them form this special bond, just like their moms! Alyssa went home with them for the week, so once again, my Alyssa is gone for another week. I miss her!
Addie and Lily, playing football like their dads!
Addie and her buddy Bailee....

This was the only way we could get a picture of Riley and Bailee together....we let them make bunny ears! (their moms have plans for these 2 someday....shhhh!)
Our families!

Fun Summer Days!

Alyssa is at camp this week, but here is a little of what Addie and Riley have been up to.....(mostly Addie, because Riley is usually off with his friends!)

Ready for a bike ride with mom and dad!

Fun day at the pool with Auntie Kate and Phoebe.....
Are they cute or what?!
This is at Riley's last baseball game of the season. Addie is having a very serious conversation on her cell phone with "Auntie Kate, Pineapple, Bunny, Mommy, Daddy, and Grandpa" (according to Addie!)
This is Riley's award ceremony at the end of the game. Addie wanted to sit right down with "the team"!
Riley and his buddy Tyler.....
