4th of July Weekend!

There's something very special bout going to the lake on the 4th of July with all of the family. We grew up going to my Grandparent's lak house on Lake Conroe and I loved that time with my cousins and family. And I still do!

My mom's family came up from Houston for a long, relaxing, fun weekend at the lake!

We got to the lake on Thursday and started off with a bit of drama! My parents were having a new light put in at the end of the driveway and the electrician hit the main water line when he was digging. Yikes!! They searched everywhere for the shuck off valve, but it had been covered with dirt and was under the tractor so we had to wait for an hour, with gushing water, for the city to come out and find the shut off valve. Eek!!

Bryson is SOOO into worktrucks, buldozers, tractors, etc, so he was FASCINATED with the tractor at the house. :) Then he decided to help the man out and move some dirt around :)

We all had fun playing washers


playing volleyball

relaxing inside

a nice rain storm outside

(he LOVES my cousin John. He followed him everywhere! :))

Bryson woke up super early every morning, so we would go on hour long walks until everyone woke up. One morning we went out and played bubles with Aunt June for a long time. The next morning, she watched Bryson and played with him all morning and let me go lay down for a little bit. I ended up sleeping for 2 hours!! She is amazing!! :)

fun presents

The boys shot fireworks one night and we watched from the side. B was SO excited about the fireworks, but when they made the loud pop, he would make ths face

then after a couple of them i suggested we go upstairs and watch from the window and he about jumped out of my lap and ran to the house. Poor kid :) He loved them from the window though!

Robert and Emily gave Bryson a package of waterballoons and he LOVED them! It was the first time he threw water balloons and when he threw it and it popped, he was so confused, but after a couple more, he really got into it and was trying to throw them at other people :) It was really funny!

Bryson loved loved playing with Kendal. He would play so gently with her and giver her toys and sing to her. It was absolutely precious! He is so sweet with little kids ;)

We had so so much fun with everyone. I love that our family gets this fun chance to make memories that will last a lifetime. And even though we may not see each other often, our kids can still grow up with fun memories of the lake, just like we have!! :)
