Our friend Becca had a birthday. We were planning on getting together for a bonfire – a FANCY bonfire as per Becca’s request – but storms were in the forecast.

SO – we moved the party to our house!

Enoch wanted to make some signs for the party!

It wasn’t a SURPRISE – but the WE LOVE YOU SORTA – all their idea!!

Fitzy wanted to DRESS UP too – so he borrowed a skirt and a jacket from my closet!!

I LOVE THAT ONE!!

SHE BENT MY BROOM HANDLE!!

Becca really does care about us – but give her that baby – and we don’t exit anymore!

Because babies are the BEST birthday gifts!!

BECCA – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!

After I took photos of Sierra & Jose’s family – I realized that we NEED to have friend photos at their fire-pit!

After a mis-communication and a later start to the night than we thought – we will have to hope for those photos to happen this fall at some point!

BUT – I HAD to get some shots of the kiddos on the trampoline!

I am SO THANKFUL that our kids get to grow up with each other!!

WELCOMING BABY *S*
