My Fourth of July Cousin

My cousin Calleen always had THE BEST birthday party because it was combined with celebrating Independence Day. There were fireworks, great food, and tons of people. Most importantly, there were parachute fireworks! Her party set a standard for the holiday that I've never quite seen matched since. Therefore, it was extremely fitting that she show up with flags and watermelon for her shoot. It took me way back, and was just so RIGHT. 

Her children are so beautiful and I've never met a little guy so willing to smile for me. Their family is continuing to grow into something magnificent.
