4th of July

For the past several years we have celebrated Independence Day with our good college friends at their lake house on Grand Lake. The Poseys have graciously invited us to spend a weekend at "the lake house" numerous times and we always have a blast. This year Paul and his new bride Lexie joined us. She's a total sweetheart and we were glad to finally meet her, since we weren't able to make it to their wedding in May. Fun times with fun friends!!

Don't you just LOVE the 4th of July...Great Food, Friends, Fireworks and FREEDOM!!

This little bathing beauty knows how to take a boat ride! The boys had so much fun with Ava, she is adorable and a total comedian!

Trav and Brock took the big kids out on the boat and swimming in the lake. This is the first year that the boys have gone on the boat and no one fell asleep!

Isn't this a sweet picture?!?! Brock and Paul took a break from playing football to pose (and give a little Man-hug!) for the camera!

LOVE this one! Libby and her adorable little man...William King Posey!

I'm glad this hammock is working out well for them, because when I got on it with Cash, he darted to one side and we flipped totally over!! In my effort to save my baby, I busted it right on my hip! Of course my next move was to look around and make sure no one saw us...thank goodness it was like 7:00 in the morning and everyone was still snoozing away!

Libby and Ava...look at those curls! Even though we don't see one another very ofter, Libby has come to be a wonderful friend. I always cherish the times we are together and our phone conversations...just a wonderful woman...with a beautiful daughter!

Beau (with monster truck in hand!). Not the greatest pictures of my handsome man, but for some reason it was the only one I got of him all weekend!

Two little lovebirds...Paul and Lexie Allen. I'm pretty much just disgusted by how GORGEOUS they are! Can you imagine how beautiful their children will be?! Not sure they will ever have children after spending a "relaxing" weekend with The Gang!

***CAUTION: The following pictures contain children...on a night! All grandparents should proceed at your own risk!!
Promise we were SUPER SAFE...cross my heart!
On the night boat ride to watch fireworks!

I like this one! Cash did a great job on the boat ride...slept a little, looked around a bit, jumped in the lake...just kidding!! Thank God for a tiny life jacket and a huge baby!

Just takin' it easy and/or wondering, "What are my parents doing to me?!"

Tytus fell asleep on Uncle Paulie's cute!

Yup that's me (the only picture from the whole weekend that I am in, oh well) and YES I too am taking a seems that taking a relaxing weekend at the lake is hard on Momma!


  1. I am craking up at the mental picture I have of you flipping out of the hammock. Seriously. Cracking up. Yep, still laughing.

  2. Thanks Friend!! It was not graceful in any way! and I have a big bruise on my thigh/hip!

  3. Loved the pics, and loved reliving the weekend! We always get a kick out of our time with you guys! Thanks for the post, and all your help! Looking forward to next time!!!!
