Tag Archives: 4th of July


I hope you all had a safe & happy 4th of July!

Here are a few photos from my home town in Lockport, NY.  These are from my laptop, so I have no idea how the color will look…

Little Firecracker

July 12th ALREADY!!??? Who pushed the hyper drive button!?

Jerry & I want to thank everyone for your prayers while his mom (Karen Ecklor) is in the hospital. She was moved to Iowa City this past week, and the doctors are determining the next steps, while family anxiously waits & prays.

Since the 4th of July was Karen’s birthday, Ryley and I created some special photos to help brighten her spirits…










In the photos below, Ryley was talking to her daddy on the phone, saying the typical toddler “No Daddy!”  She says that a lot recently, because she wants to say, sing, & do everything herself.  She cracks me up!  We’ve noticed her putting together 3 words pretty frequently now, so she’s able to give us a more accurate piece of her mind!!! She isn’t even 2 years old yet – are we in for it?  


The sheepish look is because she is about to close the phone, knowing that will hang up on her Daddy!













 Thanks Again!

Love & Blessings,
