4th Fun

We spent July 4th in Charleston and had a great weekend with Grammy and Granddaddy! These are a few pics from the weekend...

The first night, we had a terrific dinner at Hominy Grill and then played on the Battery. Abby Grace loves to climb on the cannons while Caleb can hardly sit long enough to even take a picture; he just likes to run all over the park instead!

On Saturday, we played at the pool while Brian was on call, and then met up for dinner at Red's Icehouse. After dinner, we took a walk on the Mt. Pleasant Pier.

It's difficult to get a picture of these two together, since Caleb is always on the run, so this is about as good as it gets!

I added this pic b/c it is rare for us to get a photo together of just the two of us! Some thing, or should I say some things are missing!

On Sunday, July 4th, after church, we headed to Kiawah Island for their 4th Festivities. The kids had a blast playing on the inflatables and eating cotton candy!

It was about as much fun as a little boy could handle!

Then, on Monday, we rented a boat for 4 hours and viewed all the Charleston sites by water. Plus, we anchored on a little beach for some fun in the water!

Ft. Sumter is to the left of the picture.

The Battery is just behind us.

Seeing the Battery from the water, can't beat it!

I took this pic b/c the big blue glass building in the middle is where Brian works.

Abby Grace's 4th Birthday Party, Literally!

Well, I completely forgot that I had not posted pictures from our trip to Lake Martin and Abby Grace's family birthday party. This really was her 4th birthday party to celebrate her turning 4--hopefully, she will not think that this should be a reoccurring trend (your age = the number of parties you should have)! Anyway, we did have fun celebrating with family and friends and just hanging out at the lake on Memorial Day Weekend. Somehow, I managed to get strep throat on Monday, and then Caleb got it on Tuesday, but we really did not feel that bad, so it didn't damper the week too much at all. We spent the rest of the week in Birmingham, staying at my parent's house, and we were able to catch up with family and friends. We also managed a few shopping trips and a fun day at the McWane Center with the kids as well. We really did have a great time seeing all of our family and friends! Plus, I almost forgot to mention that we were able to meet little Mallory Johnson, Karen and Tim's new baby girl! What a cutie!

We anchored the boat at this great little spot for Caleb and Abby Grace to swim and play.

Abby Grace loved meeting and holding baby Mallory! She loved playing with big brother, Luke, even more!
