    love inez’s flag shirt, jealous i couldn’t run the 5k ;) that is a great picture of gwen in the stroller! yes Inez is growing up WAY too fast, especially in that cute little outfit and platform sandals. cool shots of the fireworks and kiddos.

  2. Dave

    I love the photo of Nezzie being “Charlie Brown” sad.

    the kids are cute. but so is auntie kiki. :)

  5. Joe

    Great pics–I can’t believe how old all the little kids look. We really miss everyone now that we’re back in SA-town. Joey hasn’t yet stopped complaining that he didn’t want to leave Utah. I think he was offended that he didn’t have a say.
