These two were enjoying a visit to the park with Dad on July 4, when Malaina Kuczynski spotted the planter with the flag. She went up to it, conjured up this pose, and asked Dad to take a photo.  He complied, and then one year old Addison joined the photo-shoot. for another take.

When we asked Malaina how old she was, she raised three fingers, but Dad showed her four, however technically Malaina was correct. Her birthday is on July 6.

The girls are visiting Gram’s house for the holiday weekend.
