anyway, here they are, my family. i present to you my big bro, his wife (my sis-in-law), and their daughter. corey, melanie, and elise.
aren't the above two so beautiful? mother and daughter...so precious!
elise had so much fun playing with the balls. but we learned something about her....she inherited OCD from her daddy. :) she HAD to have all the balls on the blanket. she would get mad if they were on the grass or being thrown. hah!
love this daddy/daughter one. elise is so content on her dad's shoulders.
now isn't this so cute? elise went to pick up all the balls that were off the blanket and the adults couldn't help but torture each other. aww. true love.
melanie was pretending there was a squirrel on elise's head. elise was obsessed with squirrels all day.
this was hilarious. elise saw ants on the tree. believe it or not, this was her interested face. :)
elise loves to dance.
this was also hilarious. elise saw a squirrel and this was her approach to it. here's elise's thought process through the photos (imagined by me, of course):
"ohemgee, a squirrel. i've gotta get to it." [click!]
"i'm so happy there's a squirrel, therefore i'm gonna run faster so i can get to it quicker. yay!" [click!]
"maybe if the squirrel can tell that i'm so exited to see it, then it will let me play with it! OHEMGEE!" [click!]
hope you like the photos!
