Lest you think that my impromptu photo shoot was easy and perfect I thought I would share some of the outtakes of that day :)
The girls decided they wanted to make all the shots silly pictures despite my begging to just have one nice one...
and when they cooperated finally, their brother decided to kibosh the whole endeavor :)
Gabe asked me to take a picture of him and this is how he posed (we all got a good giggle out of that one!)
Oooooh and here is the yummy somewhat patriotic breakfast I made, waffles with maple syrup, strawberries(red) and whip cream (white) and an egg on the side since we didn't have any bacon.
Needless to say, we had a great day hanging out as a family and going to watch the fireworks that night in town.
