Happy 4th

Mom has a family wall where she puts a frame at the end of each summer to commemorate the year and what has taken place at the lake house. Visitors, reunions, work that has been done during the summer and all of the events in our lives. The pictures go back about 20 years! Each year a special picture catches her eye and she excitedly declares that it must go on the family wall. Yesterday morning when some of the kids were awake, they started being loud, exchanging the 4th of July hat that has been around for years. They wrestled, laughed and I took pictures as the scene unfolded. Mom jumped in to get involved, organizing, placing bows, hats and flags, she was sure it would make for a great picture! There were quite a few humorous shots along the way and finally I got this picture that elicited her usual response–Now this is one for the family wall!

  30. I hope you had a lovely 4th of July celebration. πŸ™‚ The picture is great – they look like they’re having fun. I like the family wall idea, though it’s not something that would work for us. Most of my family scowl whenever a camera is pointed towards them!
