friendstraditionsvacation the 4th by Shawni July 5, 2013 July 5, 2013 Where was Max? In Reno at Jr. Nationals with his team:Yes, for the 4th of July! He had a great time but boy, how we missed him! So glad he is here with us now, even though he broke Claire’s toe when he came in for a hug when he got here. 11 comments 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail Shawni previous post Happy 4th! next post Max’s summer job You may also like goodness in Colorado August 3, 2021 “friending” June 8, 2021 a birthday report, and some girls at a...

I wish mine were like that! lovely pictures, I like the ones with the glow sticks Reply Brooke July 6, 2013 - 3:11 am The picture of you and Lucy is GORGEOUS! What a precious moment captured! Reply Awee July 6, 2013 - 3:43 am Wow, do you and your group of friends have to try out to make it in? You certainly have a corner on the "beautiful, thin people." I wonder how many wish they could get in on that, but don't fit in. Reply Julie July 6, 2013 - 4:10 am I don't understand your comments. Maybe it's because I'm in the uk but I don't have a clue on what you mean. Reply Julie July 6, 2013 - 4:16 am Looks like you had a brill day:) I love Grace's hat & Claire's sunglasses. Claire looks so grown up in that picture. I notice Lucy has lost more teeth – so cute:) By the way, did Max really break Claire's toe or was it just a joke? I love your blog, it always brightens my day:) LuvJulie P.S. Is it possible please to do the rest of the love story between you & Dave? Would love to read more. Reply Megan July 6, 2013 - 7:08 am Oh my goodness, how adorable is Lucy with her toothless grin?! Love it!! 🙂 Reply Christina Becker July 6, 2013 - 3:02 pm I have been reading your blog for a few years now, but have never before commented. I think you have a BEAUTIFUL family and I am always amazed at how well behaved and kind your teenagers seem to be. With raising my own daughter (who is still very young) I am already thinking a lot about her teen years and the challenges that can come with that age group. I know keeping God at the center of your family is a HUGE help in keeping your teens on the right track, but I just wanted to let you know that I gain a lot of inspiration and parenting ideas from your wonderful blog! Thank you for sharing! Reply Amy July 7, 2013 - 2:58 am beautiful, i loved seeing the new family photo next to the one in the side bar from a previous year and seeing how everyone has grown. Looks like everyone had a great time. Reply Curtis & Co. July 8, 2013 - 2:02 am Hey!! So I have followed your blog for awhile and we want to feature you on our website Momegranate.com/blog! We want to feature you under our new series called "Women You Should Know" – If you could email me at email@example.com, that would be great!

EliseMomegranate Author Reply Miriam July 9, 2013 - 3:46 am I just love the skirt you are wearing in these photos (black and white stripe) and have been trying to find something like it on the internet. Can you let us in on the secret of where you found it? Reply Jeanne W. July 12, 2013 - 4:12 pm I love that skirt too!!! I can't seem to find it anywhere! You wear the cutest clothes. =) Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
