Kids and the New Camera

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Our old faithful camera, which had survived so much, including near total submersion in water, finally died. Our replacement just arrived, and the kids were keen to get some pictures of themselves taken with it:

Beth was the first to get photographed:

Here are Jake and Beth running around with underwear on their heads (I remember when they were little and they used to run around with diapers on their heads — they grow up so quickly…):

We have them doing a lot of construction work out back, but I let them take a break for a couple minutes so I could get this picture:
Hard at Work

Here they are proud of our home-grown apples (we got about 7 this year, which is a big improvement over past years):

And, finally, here are some pictures of them playing in the dirt:

Beth managed to climb out of the little box we like to keep her in. It looks like we’re going to need to get a bigger box…
