Birthday Girls

We call them our June bugs, our girls, all three of whom were born in the middle of June. For one day Annie and I could say that we had three kids one year and younger, since Julia was born one day before the twins turned two.

Over the years they've come to understand how gratifying it is to us gift givers to see the gift receiver properly ooh and aww and fawn over their gifts (see first three photos). And we, as the parents, have come to understand that with three girls come a whole bunch more, as the scene on the sofa reveals. That last shot, of the girls drawing on the pavement in the backyard, highlights was an ethnically diverse set of friends and family our girls have. Why, some of them have darker hair than some of the others. What a melting pot.
