Day 83/100 Morning snuggles in the kitchen




Day 83/100 We spent the afternoon at a local pond that has kayak and paddle board rentals at it. We celebrate three birthdays in August in my family, so we had a big joint party. The kids were all on the paddle board with my husband out in the middle and jumping off to swim in the pond. Kyler had been in the water, but holding on to the side of the paddle board when his Dad jumped off. The board bucked up in Kyler’s face and out came his loose tooth!! After crying some, Kyler was pleased to find his tooth laying on the paddle board.

He looks way too old in these pictures!

One thought on “100 Days of Summer-August

  1. Wow, wow, wow! Such a talent, Lauren!!! I could sit and stare at these for more than an hour. Not kidding. The way you use light and shadows, especially on the kids’ faces… it intrigues me. I love the one of your son squatting on top of the table. Haha! Something my Jed would do. And I love those pictures of you in the pool with your boys!!! Priceless.
