4th of July with Stephen, Rachael, and Leah

My brother Stephen, his wife Rachael, and their little girl Leah came to visit us for the long weekend and we had a wonderful time! The last time we got these two little girls together was when Anna Kate was only 4 days old, so they had a lot more fun this time! We had a great time going to the park, swimming in our friends' pool, showing them all around our town (which is still new to us!), watching fireworks (on TV so the babies could go to bed), and doing sparklers and pop-its in the backyard! Here are some pictures of our weekend!

We spent Saturday morning at our neighborhood park. The girls loved the swings and slides! Anna Kate was a little jealous of how high Leah got to swing though...we told her that maybe when she's older she can swing that high!

These dads love their baby girls!

After church on Sunday, we had a 4th of July cookout with some friends from our new church and had a great time swimming in their pool!

Anna Kate is quite the rockstar with her sunglasses

Leah LOVED flying in the air and splashing in the pool!

The two little cousins enjoyed getting acquainted with one another!

Anna Kate thinks Leah is funny!
Leah thinks Anna Kate is funny too!
Fireworks are not allowed in the city limits of Camden, but we did have some fun with sparklers after the babies went to bed!

And, last but not least, we tried to get some posed pictures of Leah and Anna Kate in their patriotic 4th of July outfits. It was hard to get a good shot of both girls, but we had a lot of fun trying!

AK: "Leah, why do you have to sneeze during the picture?"

Leah: "Anna Kate, don't you even know how to sit up?"
We did get a couple of decent ones!

We sure loved having you three...come again soon!


  1. Hi Patty, I love all these pictures. They are fantastic. It looks like you all have a great time together. We miss you but are having a wonderful time with Gma and Gpa!

    Love, Mommy
