4th of July Weekend

Stryker & I spent the 4th of July holiday with my family in Aiken. He actually went up with his Nana on Wednesday and I drove up on Thursday. I got there just in time as Mom & Lorie were serving up a lot of delicious food. In true 4th of July fashion, our table was abundant with burgers, dogs, BBQ and all the fixin's! We all ate & talked, played some cards and then had a quick photo shoot before the Honour's had to hit the road. 

The many cutie faces of my niece Maddison! What a ham she is!

Stryker LOVES Maddsion! Peyton is one silly boy! Nana & Peyton strike a pose.

I just ADORE this picture! What a couple cuties these two are. Oh how I love these boys!

And after many, many, many tries.... A picture of the cousins.

That evening, Mom & I enjoyed some frozen drinks and Mark & Logan showed off a brilliant fireworks display. They were like kids in a candy store with those explosives :) 

Friday was another rainy day (seems to be the norm for SC this summer). We went and met Papa for lunch (he had to work Friday). After our lunch, Nana, Stryker & I went to Augusta for some shopping. We checked out a couple new stores in the area and stopped by Target. We had a nice relaxing evening hanging around their house Friday night.

And lucky for us, the sun actually made an appearance Saturday morning! We quickly hit Richardson's Lake for a little fun in the sun while it lasted. Stryker loved going down the water slide in the kiddie area and soon graduated to jumping off the diving board. He really became quite the water lover this summer!

Mommy's sweet boy!

The rain returned in the early afternoon so it was time to call it a day for the lake. Stryker seemed to have gotten his fill anyway and was soon catching a cat nap on the way home. 

Later that evening, we packed up some blankets, drinks, snacks and stopped for some Subway subs and headed to the drive in movie! They were showing a double feature: Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University. The movies didn't start until after dusk, so it was a little late for my little man who was tired from all the water fun earlier in the day. He made it though Despicable Me 2, but was fast asleep through the second movie, Monsters University. All in all, our first drive in movie experience was AWESOME! We all had lots of fun!

Sunday we had to head back home to get ready for a new work week. Thanks Nana & Poppa for having us all weekend! We had lots of fun!
