A couple of Sundays ago, my niece, Elinor, turned 7. Wow. It seems like such a long time ago that I was photographing her birth. My life has changed so much since then.
My sister (Elinor's mom) threw a casual party in honor of the day while the rest of my family was camping. We frosted the cupcakes at the campground playground.
Helen and her mini cupcake (with a frosting rose).
I'm slowly coming to peace with the fact that Helen eats "unhealthy" food. Reuben has really pushed me to let go, but it hurts. I want what's best for Helen, but I don't want her to lead a strict life, either.
The guys, keeping entertained with cards and video games (and watching video games).

It's kind of funny to think that in another 7 years Elinor will be 14. I wonder what she'll be like as a teenager...
