4th of July at the lake

Our Pickwick lake trip last weekend was AWESOME. It's always nice to get away for a long weekend and get out of the norm of everyday life. We had such a good time! The Tillmans graciously let us borrow their house for the weekend, which by the way, was N-I-C-E. Some of the fun things we did this weekend included going out on the boat, watching fireworks, sitting around the fire pit and talking, eating, watching movies and tv in the nice media room, celebrating a birthday, watching the girls (and Ross) tube, relaxing and spending time together. Jude did so well this weekend, I think he's a lake kinda guy. :) Here are some pics from our weekend...

My favorite picture

Pictures on the boat...Jude LOVED being on the boat! He got a little hot the second day, but he loved it when the boat was going.

Ross actually tubed! It was too funny...

Me and my Sissy

Jude fell asleep on his daddy like this! It was so cute.

But later, he got hot. So, we stripped him to a diaper and cooled him off with some of the water. (he did not get in, but I could tell he wanted to, hehe)

Me and my sister with our babies---note the matching 4th of July outfits the babies are wearing

Jude and Shawn. Shawn is just about as big as Jude!
All good things must come to an end. We came home and I was sad. But, my 26th was a good one this year. Thanks to Ross, Jude, Sissy, Shawn, Jessie, Monica and Jamie. They even got me a cake and everything. (no candles...someone forgot them).

Oh! Quotes from the weekend---
"We were at the sports bra..."
"Diapes and wipes, poo poo in the diap"
"Home skillet"
"Excuse me....or should I say excuse YOU"
"Brandie, please tear the club up"
"In the ayer , ay , ayer , ayer , ay , ayer"
