Fourth of July

We had a fabulous 4th of July weekend! We spent a couple of nights at the lake and then a night in Cloudland at the cabin. The weather was great all weekend. We had some fun trips out on the boat and tubed a couple of times on Saturday. Sadly, I'm still sore!

Hudson loved the water. He hated being in his life jacket in the water, but the minute we got his float out, he was all about it. The life jacket is more like a straight jacket, but we're doing what we can to keep the little guy safe while on the dock and in the boat so it is a necessity!

Most of Joel's cousins were there and they are all in college or just graduated, so Hudson had a blast watching everyone and they all gave him so much attention! There were EIGHT dogs there as well, so he was in absolute heaven!

The plan was to go see the fireworks by boat at 9 on Saturday night, but Joel and I decided at the last minute not to go with them. Hudson was exhausted from a day spent mostly outside in the sun and he had only napped for a short while, so we were worried he might get fussy on the boat and there would have been no where for us to go. We didn't want to ruin it for anyone! I'm sure that we will definitely be going next year!

He did look super cute in his Mr. Independent pajamas for the 4th of July!

We got Hudson a baby pool and he wanted nothing to do with it! It was really cute and the whale shot water out its spout. Oh well!

Sunday we headed to Cloudland to spend the afternoon with my parents and Morgan. We walked through the art show and had some ice cream, and then ate ribs that night and watched all the fireworks in the valley. It was fun!

It was a great weekend and we're so glad it's a short week! Thank goodness the weekend is almost here again! We're actually in town this weekend and looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing (except getting ready for our big trip coming up soon!).
