4th of July weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing 4th of July.  Our weekend was nice.  We spent most of our time on the river with just the 3 of us.  We enjoy having friends join us in the boat but we also really enjoyed it being just the 3 of us (plus Sadie) this time.  Family time is always special!  You can see that Cain was pretty worn out from the boat.

We went to a cookout our condo complex was having Saturday night.  It was nice to meet some of our neighbors.  It was Cain’s first time seeing fireworks and he did much better than I expected him to.

We took the boat out again on Sunday.

When we first got on the water we noticed the cutest kids selling lemonade and cookies on their boat dock.  They were precious and seemed happy we stopped considering we were their first customers of the day.

As much fun as we always have on the river it can still be sad at times too.  There are constant reminders of the flood.  Like this boat that is certainly still out of place!

And this is Kenny Chesney’s river home.  It used to be Alan Jackson’s but Kenny Chesney bought it recently.  During the flood the water reached the roof.  So crazy to think the river ever got that high!

After a fun filled day on the river, we went to a 4th of July cookout at Benson and Allison’s house.

This 4th of July was much more relaxing than last year.  The last 4th was Cain’s first big outing.   He was a little over 5 months then and it was the first time he had been out of the house besides going to a Dr’s appointment or the hospital for surgeries.  Here is a picture from that night a year ago.

He’s grown so much since then and we’ve relaxed a lot too.  Amazing how much can change in a year.

Cain is getting so big! He is such a cutie. I'm glad you guys had a nice 4th. I agree, it is always fun to spend time with family and friends but it is so important and special to have family time just the 3 of you guys.
