More Family Time

This past weekend our whole gang was here. It was of course Fathers Day weekend but also Charlies 27th birthday weekend. So we took time to celebrate together.
Charlie is proud of his new jeep and took the doors off for the first time. (With a little help from Mark)
Avery played in the sprinkler in the back yard. Poppa hooked it up and she cut it on.
Interestingly enough there is this small hole in our yard where we (sadly) cut down my redbud tree as it was having issues. Anyway, Avery thought it was great to get right up to the edge of it and carefully jump over this hole time and time again.

We invited some friends over for Charlies birthday and had a DELICIOUS dinner complete with birthday cake for dessert!We did sing Happy Birthday to him and Avery helped him blow out his candles. She insists that he wished for Tinkerbell. Who knows maybe she was right.
We went gator hunting once again. We did see a few of these but not nearly as many as before.
It was an interesting hunt though and very nice out.
We had a great time with our family and friends and are completely blessed to have each and every one of them. Todd had a great Father's Day. The gifts he got were nice but I know that what he enjoyed the most was having everyone here.

Glad y'all had a good Father's Day weekend~ Todd deserves it. And Charlie, too, of course. :)
We had part of our girls here Thurs, Fri and Sat. Then, Larry ended up with his Father's Day being spent like my Mother's Day~ with just the two of us. lol Steph did come over after church~ so at least he saw one of them. Anyway... just the two of us spending the day together was nice and doesn't happen as much as you'd think now that Shelbi's home for the summer. :) Deb and the girls are coming this weekend and we're keeping the girls for the week after Deb goes home. :)
