Haley's Camping Trip

I have the BEST parents in the world.  They were going camping in Gatlinburg the week of the 4th of July and since Hunter had a baseball tournament all week they knew Haley would be bored.  They asked Haley if she wanted to go with them on their vacation.  She was soooooo excited.

Haley, Beau, Jonah and Carter built their own waterway in the creek beside their camp site.

So proud of their work
 After a rain they were so excited that the water was up to about 18 inches on one side.  They also were disappointed to find out that they had to knock it down before they left.  It is evidentally against the law to build a "waterway" in creeks and streams in Gatlinburg.

 They went to the 4th of July parade in downtown.

We love the Dukes of Hazzard

Mom and Haley took this pic for me because my only instructions were to STAY AWAY from big drop offs.  As I was fussing about the pic and the fact my daughter is on both sided of the wall they laughed because the ground was the same level as the concrete on the other side.  Funny girls!

I am so thankful to have such wonderful parents.  They are very active grandparents.  We are very blessed.

Summer Time

Well I have fallen a little behind with post so this is a warning that the following will be a long post.

We had a cookout for cousin Anthony who flew home for a visit the week of the 4th of July.
There was great food cooked by Rob & dad, an exciting game of kickball and a lot of picture taking.
Dodie helped Hannah kick and run.  So sweet!

 The big boys were very sweet with Charlie.  They let him bat and he got a homerun everytime.

Next we had Hunter's baseball World Series.
Pizza and cokes are always a hit with baseball players
