A conversation with Jake. Not sure where the subject came from. We were talking about choosing books at the library when...
Jake: "I hope I marry a girl named Kaitlin or Emily."
Me: "Oh. Because you like those names?"
Me: "So do you like those names because of the girls you know?"
Jake: "I only know a girl named Emily. I'm not going to marry her."
And the subject seemed closed. Fine with me! But then...
Jake: "Mom, you know I only like one girl."
Jake: "You know, Jillian!"
Me: (no words...)
Uh oh! Oh well, I guess we can be confident that this little crush won't progress too far since she's got the wrong name!

Camden and I inspected the garden this afternoon. And we came in with - drumroll please - our FIRST TOMATO! We were pretty excited.

I may not tell him when that one ripens! Luckily, we're looking forward to many, many tomatoes this summer. Currently, we have 46 more ripening on the vines!

I have a confession to make: Whichever holiday we are about to celebrate, are celebrating, or have just celebrated, is my FAVORITE holiday.
So, right now...
The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday! I love it. I love the parades, the food, and the bright colors. I love decorating bikes and dogs and watching fireworks. I love that we celebrate outside with family and friends. I love that whole communities come together to celebrate our country and our freedom.
So, without further ado, here are just a few snapshots from our Fourth in Buena Vista:
