Fourth Of July

Here is a photo I love of the kids taking turns putting up our flag, so this is my submission for the week!!!
Shutter Love Tuesday has a "4th of July" Theme and In A Yellow House is "Black & White or Sepia with selective color."  This shot hits them both perfectly!!!

Here are some other photos from the weekend in my attempt to get some good shots of the kids. I really only had one willing participant, Kaylee. There was a ton of fighting over the flag, so we also had a few time outs. I didn't get any good shots of Addison who was being very dramatic at the time. After sorting through all the sad face teary photos, here are the few I felt were worth keeping.... Maybe I'll post some shots of the drama tomorrow?????

We did have a really great weekend!!! We spent Saturday at my uncles house and let the kids swim a bit.

Sunday night we found a great spot to watch fireworks and put blankets down in the back of my parents truck and watched the show!!! Everyone loved them except Addison. She isn't big on noise and put her hand over her mouth in fear (usually she puts them over her ears).  DSC_0045

After a few minutes she relaxed a bit, but wouldn't move her hand... She was too sweet!! Kaylee melted down when they were over cause she wanted more. I was happy to see that Mr. Cautious Jadon loved them as did baby brother Cody.

Monday the triplets had their 1st swim lesson and we let them practice at the local pool where the water is shallow enough they can stand!!! All in all great weekend!!!


  1. Great photos....it is sooo hard to get everyone to cooperate that we never have photos of all 3 of ours!

  2. These are so sweet and that first shot is a perfect use of selective color. Absolutely beautiful!
