4th of july

we had a fabulous 4th of july weekend. jeremy had friday off, so we woke up early and went to maynor creek to swim in the lake. (no sign of alligators this year, yay!) then we got a milkshake and did grocery shopping. the rest of the day was spent making goodies for the bbq (heath bar cake, cup cake cheesecakes and lemon bars) and playing a game of trivial pursuit (jeremy totally killed me). saturday we spent all day at aunt janie's and then went to see fireworks. sunday we relaxed.

a few pictures from our 4th of july bbq at aunt janie's house-

aunt janie bought a pool for the kids to play in. i sat in it with oscar and aaron for awhile. oscar loved it (cept when he'd fall under). i can't wait until he can take swimming lessons! aaron wasn't so sure about it and stayed glued to me for awhile.

and telling winston he's a good dog

the men that did all the good grilling - uncle jimmy ray, jeremy and uncle nigel. aaron giving uncle jj lots of love.

aunt janie enjoyed the time with her nephews, jeremy and danielle laughing while they played family feud, oscar enjoying the pool, oscar and aaron running around (i just typed 'funning' on accident, but i suppose that works too.), and cousin sheldon gave oscar kool-aid and became his insta-buddy.

we spent all day at aunt janie's house and then had to rush to throw everything into the car to make it to the fireworks. we made it in time and the fireworks were great. oscar actually paid attention to them this year and loved them. i told him my favorite are the crackling ones and he said his favorite are the blue ones.
