Independence Day

We had a wonderful 4th of July.  Not only did we celebrate our country's independence, we also celebrated Cain's 6 week post-op independence.  July 4th was 6 weeks post-op for Cain.  I am still amazed at how well Cain has recovered and so thankful that we haven't really had any complications during the 6 weeks of recovery.  Since Cain has reached 6 weeks post op we can get Cain out and about and most importantly we can finally pick Cain up under his arms.  Since his sternum was opened for his surgery we had to give this area time to heal before being able to pick him up under his arms.

Our friends Clark and Stephanie live in Virginia and were driving to Louisiana to visit their family (and to announce the sex of their baby which is a GIRL!  So exciting!) so they stopped and spent the night with us.  We don't get to see them enough and wish we could talk them into moving to Nashville.  We keep trying.  Cain always has so much fun playing with their son, Austin.

Sunday night we enjoyed a cookout at our friends Benson & Allison.

And on Monday, the 4th, we took Callie on her first boat ride.

Callie did great on her first boat ride.  She loves being outdoors and seemed to really enjoy riding in the boat.

Later that night we drove to a place near our house where you can see downtown in the distance.  It was a great way to see the downtown fireworks without having to deal with the crowds.
