OK.” It doesn’t do her any justice to type it out because her voice is so cute at this age!...

We hope everyone had a fun 4th of July! Perfect weather, family and friends, and backyard games were just a few elements of our holiday. Emerson was outside bouncing and swimming all afternoon and had even more fun once her friend Bremer showed up to play! We grilled, ate a lot of desserts, and finally cuddled up in bed to watch amazing live fireworks  (WAY too tired to fight the crowds in Okoboji). I literally wish every day was the 4th of July – always a favorite holiday!...

These are doing pop out of flowers with blue strawberries! I going to eat ’em all gone!”...
