My mom talked to Mrs. * and everything was set to go. Two days before picture time, Mrs. * says she can't do it. We're going crazy...Katie lines up her friend M to do the job with her super nice camera. Thirty minutes before showtime, M texts Katie and says she's been called into work. We were all dressed (our traditional uniform of navy or white shirts with khaki shorts) and we were devastated. Never fear--our good friend Sarah Walsh, or SWalsh as Julia likes to say, stepped in to save the day. She took pictures on my camera, her phone, and Julia's phone. So we have a whole mix of poses. Here are some of the good ones. **Note: Two and three years of age: quite possibly the most difficult ages to photograph. My children would not look up, would not sit still, would not stand still, would not smile, etc. :D

I knew I wanted to spend my birthday weekend in North Wildwood and we planned on being there for about a week. But then Bill got a car, so he and Katie decided they would drive out to BYU on the 19th. So we HAD to stay to send them off to the West! We drove to NJ on Aug 7, and that same night North Wildwood was hosting their "National Night Out" on the 8th street field. The girls loved every minute of it! There was free food--hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, sodas, snow cones, etc. There were a ton of games to play and prizes to take home. And the night ended with watching The Lorax on a big screen on the field. Super fun!

Before we left for our two week stay in North Wildwood, here's what we did... The pool has been a big blessing this summer. I found that the best time to go is 10am, right when it opens. We have the place to ourselves for two to three hours.
