The 4th With Photos

The 4th of July has come and gone, and as usual, I found myself with my family in Nebraska. To document this 4 day trip to Nebraska, I thought I would share it with you all using some photos:

Like all good visits to the farm, we started our weekend being greeted by some *wild* cats… One this year however seems to have gotten itself into a bind:

Yes, that’s a broken glass jar around it’s head. As best we can figure, it must have put it’s head in a jar, then smashed the jar into something causing it to break… Many ideas were shared over the weekend on how to get the glass off the cats head… Most of which involved a gun of some sort… However, we decided that at least for now, the best course of action was to let the cat enjoy it’s new collar.

The other big highlight of the weekend was Sophie, my cousin’s soon to be 1 year old daughter:

Sophie was almost always smiling… And she provided plenty of great photos for me over the weekend… “Sophie for President”:

“Sophie, how do you feel about Kim?”:

“I’m telling you, it went like this… No matter what he Trevor says.”:

“I’m cooler than you”:

“Ewwww… What’s that smell…”:

and my personal favorite… “I’m sorry Sophie, but you can’t go in the kitchen”:

We also did the the farm work that we do every year at the fourth, aka laying irrigation pipe. It was a pretty decent year, and if you want to know more about it, just read some of my other posts from around July 4th of previous years… As you can tell though, it is a dirty job… But hey someone’s got to do it:

And of course, we watched some fireworks… Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you all enjoyed it!  Hey Rich and Eliz… Recognize the chair? 🙂

    I loved your photography and how blessed you are to have such a wonderful family in Nebraska! I still feel sorry for the cat, and I am totally voting for Sophie for president!
