summer kiddie pics- for grandpa and grandma knapp

The sun found all our kids this summer; Jack and Em running against the wind with moppy, beachy, sun-scorched hair, and Ryland recently shorn (from certain "pedro" syndrome) Eve sported her first barrette, and her first bathingsuit.
Jackson has found his boyancy working to his advantage in the pool as he has learned to swim, dive, float and rage around like a shark in the water. Emerson is well on his way - close behind- ready to take on the world of water.
Ryland now has a healthy fear of water (no holds-bar for him in any type of adventure) but after stepping into the deep end of the pool a couple of times and being snatched out (very immediately) I think he's done the math- and frequents the shallow end now.
Eve is amazing. period.
We had a blast on the river in WV- canoeing , kayaking, swimming, building sandcastles, playing with dogs, throwing sticks, roasting marshmallows, -

Now - just settling in. love you.

Amazing photos from an amazing summer!! Although, I think Ryland really would have developed a unique and different personality if you left his "Pedro" hair cut. Although, now that I think about it, maybe it was the best thing for him that you cut it short. Just imagine a Flashforward in time and Ryland is giving a speech to his classmates about how he can "make all of their wildest dreams come true" -yikes.
