Independence Day

We had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend. We went to Lake Anna for the weekend to visit my in-laws. Christina had her first jetski ride(waverunner)! No pictures of that, but I'll get one next time. She looked so cute and proud of herself. She had her infant lifevest on; I drove at 5 mph, maybe 10 mph max. She was thrilled to be a big girl like her brothers. Maybe I'm a little nuts to put an18 month old on a jetski, but we were very safe about it.
Part of the time it rained, so we had to do some activities indoors:
Making cookies with Grand-daddy

Washing beloved Doggy
Helping Me-Maw cook

We watched some fireworks at the lake put on by neighbors, and my father-in-law. Christina went to sleep really late because the neighbors were shooting their fireworks off late into the night.

The neighborhood that the grandparents live in put on a cute parade, smaller than I have ever seen before. People decorated their golf carts, and drove around the neighborhood. Like I said, it was small. The kids liked the free candy. Here's one last picture, because I have to show off my daughter's cute little independence day outfit:
We wrapped up the weekend by going to King's Dominion for a couple hours and watching their fireworks from our car in a thunderstorm. It was a busy weekend. Lots of great family memories were made.
