we went to our church picnic for the 4th. it was really fun! not as hot as i expected, but still really warm. lily was so excited to get to hold baby esther! so far, she’s been really excited when she sees a baby and just wants to love on them – let’s hope that’ll apply to her little brother!
sean and emilie (my niece) got a good snuggle in!

after the picnic and a quick rest at home, we met my brother and his family at the beach in cayucos. unfortunately, it was so cold, windy, and foggy that we left before the fireworks even started because we wouldn’t be able to see them thru the fog. here’s gracie flying a kite for the first time!
lily enjoyed burying herself in the sand
