I hope you all enjoyed your Independence Day celebrations. We traveled to several locations over the weekend and got to spend time with both of our families. Last Friday we headed out to east Arkansas to stay at Eric's grandfathers hunting club. We were driving into the club around 7:30 and the sun and landscape was just perfect for taking photos.
Olivia is potty trained now (YAY!!) and she let us know several times on the trip down that she needed to stop for potty break. Since we were mostly driving through farm country that meant she had to do her business on the side of the road. Thankfully I took along her potty chair and she thought it was quite fun to "tickle' outside. :-)
The camp is actually located on a peninsula in the Mississippi River. Back in May all the farmland you see pictured was covered in water. It was the biggest flood this area of the country has seen in years.
Noah thought drinking from the leaky hose would be a good way to cool down. :-)
The kids loved riding around camp in the Ranger.
Driving out Saturday we got to see this tug boat pushing huge barges down the river.
We had a family get-together in Helena Saturday afternoon and enjoyed BBQ with all the sides.
Noah was wore out after playing with some of his cousins. We head home around 5 and stopped at my parents around dark to watch a firework show that the city puts on there. I didn't get any pictures but the kids loved every minute of it.
After church on Sunday we decided to stay with Eric's parents for the rest of the long weekend. Eric went fishing Monday morning and the kids and I slept in then played outside while Mawmaw and Poppy worked in their garden.
We cooked ribs and burgers that evening then shot some fireworks of with the kids.
I think he was trying to blow out the smoke bomb. :-)
We shot a few more off after dark then bathed the kids and headed home. It was a busy but fun weekend.
