A Long 4th Weekend

I managed to sneak in a little extended vacation over the 4th of July and we took full advantage and went home to KY. We got in late Wednesday night and enjoyed all the extra time with the family, cooking out, boating and shooting off fireworks.

The girls had a large time together. They put on daily ballerina dance shows for us. Natalie's make-shift tutu... a feather boa Heather wrapped around her waste.

Thursday night we spent some time with some of Vann's friends who put on a annual fireworks show and cookout.
If looks could kill...
Playing with Daddy.

PaPaw's girls, he's got his hands full with these two that's for sure.

Finally out on the boat Friday. The girls LOVED it! Natalie could barely wait for PaPaw to drop anchor before she was ready to get in. Kaitlyn swam her little heart out back and forth from Jason to Byron and myself.

Daddy's girls

Sunday was the "big" Fancy Farm parade, something Natalie nor I had ever been too. We got front row seats in Granny's yard. I'd say Nat's favorites were the horses and the float with Mickey Mouse.

Bubba and his tractor. A Toon tradition.

Brady hopping up for a ride with Danny.

Innocent bystanders. You can't tell it from this picture but one of the fire trucks stopped right in front of Granny's and thought they could spray their hose up to the porch to get my Dad wet. Instead Byron and Lynnley got soaked.

Natalie and I waiting for the next round of candy to be thrown our way.

Terry and Karla cooling off with the top down.

Later we went over to Karla's for a better view of the fireworks show. Nat didn't really care for them this year. She doesn't mind seeming them out the window but to actually be outside real close to them isn't something she cares for yet.

Danny just needed a few more kids on that four-wheeler.
