Emerson Jane

Sweet Emerson is one today! Happy Birthday! She wasn't feeling her best when we took these, but after a little mom time and Tylenol she gave us the goods on the very last shot, when all the pretty light was gone. Good thing she is absolutely darling when unhappy! Happy Birthday little one!

iphone photos

I am constantly stealing Mr. Reece's iphone to take pic's when I don't have my camera handy. But I almost always forget to download them afterward, so these are some gems from quite awhile ago.

From the top: Hudson whissing at church, that is what he calls sweeping or vacuuming, whissing. A quick trip to Idaho. Walking home from Seven Peaks. Summer lawn & Flying Pie Pizzeria (thanks Man V. Food.) Nickle City, otherwise known as hell on earth. My aunt and uncles beautiful view and their beautiful grandchildren and horses. Tasha's insanely good grilled anaheim chilies with queso. Luke, Chloe and a Sunday nap. All taken with the cross process app for iphone.

Evening Walk

A walk in our old neighborhood, and our cute neighbor Abigail.

My grandparents homemade root beer is the best part of summer. They used to start making it in May until September and it was involved in all my best childhood memories. It is an old pioneer recipe involving hops, yeast, sugar, root beer extract, one ancient Gott cooler, water, a little elbow grease and a bottle capper. People either love it or they hate it but we will always make you try it at least once.
