A perfect afternoon

My niece and my nephew live far away... like in other states. Which makes me sad because my girls just adore their cousins. We have been very lucky in the past month as cousin Savannah travelled out our way for a week-long stay. And just this past weekend, we saw cousin Luke. Of course there are tons of photos documenting the way-too-infrequent visits (for some reason, our sisters have not heeded our demands that they move to our neck of the woods...). I suppose that they have lives of their own *sigh*.

Savannah is 3 years old - right in between her 2 and 4 year old cousins. It was so much fun to watch them run around, singing and playing. When we were standing in my in-law's kitchen, the girls blew through screeching and laughing at a volume that was probably heard back home in Arkansas. Grandpa just smiled and said "I love it!".

My sister-in-law, Katie, and I made a trip down to the Silver Spoon in Roseville and bought some completely adorable clothes for the girls. I thought their new Isabella and Chloe ensembles would be perfect for a photo shoot on the beach. Wouldn't you agree?

The afternoon started out oh so innocently. But before long, the girls were in the water and soaking wet. The good news is that their beautiful outfits survived the elements. Which is a good thing, because I can't wait for the girls to wear them again.
