There was so much fun to be had that even Lilly who is usually in constant motion had to take a break. Here she is warming up in the sun after coming out of the pool with chattering teeth!
We spent the Fourth of July at my sister Michelle's house which just happens to be on a lake and have a pool - not fair I know! As I said in the last post, the other children did venture out a bit more than Hudson who was most content either eating his chips or sitting on the edge of the pool playing with cups. Shelby, Katie, and Fulton enjoyed kayaking - a first for all 3 of them. They even got me to give it a try, and I actually loved it also! Ethan, Lilly, and Ellie had the most fun in the pool which is where they spent the majority of their time. They did take a few spins on our jet ski, and Ethan also rode in Uncle Trip's boat. In between eating, swimming, kayaking, jet skiing, and boating, Katie and Shelby did find a few spare minutes to hold their newest little cousin, baby Dargan. Needless to say, we all had a blast at Aunt Michelle and Uncle Nick's house. And we tried to be on our very best behavior in hopes of being invited back : )

Reach in slowly and grab at least one
Study it carefully
Show it off
Put it in your mouth before they decide to take it for themselves
Push it in to make sure it doesn't fall out
Study the next one in detail
Chew slowly to enjoy each and every morsel
Then repeat the above as you surely can't eat just one or two or three!
Hudson really enjoyed his chips on July 4th. Check back later to see what his siblings enjoyed - needless to say they ventured out a bit more than Hudson and were a tad more adventurous!
