Celebrating U.S.A.'s birthday, birthday suit and all!

We're now back from the lake house. I know I'm behind on posting and promise to make it up--if any of you are still reading!

I will admit I was dreading going to the lake house for 2 weeks, being out of routine, etc. and worried that Luke would be bored and Charlie wouldn't sleep. I am now sad that we had to leave that little piece of heaven, in the middle of Nowheresville, South Carolina. We had the best time!

Chad did eventually make it back from Argentina, but he returned with what we think is E. coli and has been miserable and in tons of pain for over a week now. Poor thing.

Before he returned though, we celebrated the 4th of July. I really wanted to make things special on the 4th this year, since I thought Luke would "get it." Unfortunately, the area we were in has been in a drought, so the big fireworks display was cancelled. We, however, still know how to have a good time, so Luke was in his element! We went out for a boat ride, had a picnic, Aunt Mary baked a flag cake, we decorated and even did sparklers (my sister and I cannot celebrate the 4th without sparklers)! It was lots of fun!

Here are Mimi and Luke walking up from the boat. We showed Luke this picture on our camera and asked him what he was wearing. He paused and thought really hard for a minute and said "Crocs!" Good job, Luke!

Luke, now fully clothed, had a blast waving flags around all day on the 4th!

Aunt Mary, Grandpa, Mommy and Luke

We're all looking at Aunt Mary's beautiful flag cake! It was beautiful and delicious!!

My sweet parents! Thanks so much for a WONDERFUL trip! We love you!

That picture of Luke naked is priceless, and the comment that goes with it is even better!

Looks like Brennan and Luke need to hang out together. He also likes to run naked wearing Crocs!

Actually we had a great week in S.Carolina with Dads sisters there and a wonderful 2 weeks with you and the boys in S.Carolina with us. Just hated that Chad didn't have a chance to enjoy his time there...but he'll have another chance one day. Yes, the picture of Luke and his Croc's is priceless. Love Charlie in his life jacket also. It's larger than he is! Hope Chad is feeling better each day!
Love you all, Mimi
