Every year, I try to take a kid picture on July 4th. Always a fun time for pictures! We spent most of the day at the pool yesterday so I didn’t get a chance for a picture with all the kids together. This morning when we arrived home from church, everyone was still clean, the sun was shining and smiles were in abundance, soooo we snapped away. Here’s what I got. The individuals are along the side. I guess I really needed to switch out the Christmas pics 🙂

5th of July, 2009
Mason practices blowing out his candles. He put the first round out with his fingers. Obviously, his first time with candles 🙂 He finally got the hang of it and had fun blowing them out.
We have a family tradition of wearing birthday hats on everyone’s birthdays, young and old. Sam and Paige were having fun finding new ways to wear their hats.
Mason enjoying his time out of shoes and brace. He is standing at his new sand and water table. He is beginning to stand on his feet more and more. In the beginning, he did not like that sensation of standing on the bottoms of his feet.
Happy birthday, sweet boy! We love you and can’t wait to celebrate so many more birthdays with you!
Love, Mommy, Daddy, Samuel, Alice and Paige
Paige: Mom? Do you have to go through space to get to heaven?
Sam: No, Paige. Heaven is in your heart. You just have to go into your heart to get to heaven.
