We had a weekend packed as full as we could get it. Friday started us off with a pretty laid back cookout at our house with some friends where Cliff mastered the grill. Steaks, fresh gulf fish, corn on the cob, zucchini and peppers & onions 🐷 He’s definitely the Emerald around our place. We left out Saturday morning to float the creek with about 25 people. Logan had an absolute blast. He got to hang out with dad in his kayak, swing from every swing, jump from every rock, and play with his new bud Chandler or if Logan is saying it, ChanT-ler. We stayed on the creek for a good 7 hours just floating and soaking up the sun.
Of course no creek float is complete without Cliff jumping from a 40′ rock and loosing his Oakleys 🙄 so first thing Sunday we loaded up to a quick trip to Academy to replace them and picked up a trunk load of fireworks and a couple pounds of gulf shrimp while we were out. With a failed attempt of naps for everyone we went to another cookout and played in the pool before going down to the farm for fireworks and bottle rocket wars. Actually bottle rocket wars probably isn’t correct, the better word would be the grown men shooting us moms and kids because apparently that’s hilarious 😒💥
After a short but welcomed nights sleep we woke up to Independence Day 🇺🇸 land of the free because of the brave 💪🏻. My mother-in-law lives on the river and every year their street shuts down for a July 4th parade. Pretty much everyone finds something with wheels, decorates it in red, white, and blue and load up all the kids. After we drive around the neighborhood everyone meets back up for hotdogs, watermelon, and ice cream. Half way through the ride our boys are making sure that we know “that water is calling my name” and we finish our day in the water and on the boat.
Now we’re hanging out on the couch in our pjs and waiting on pizza to be delivered 🍕 I’m pretty sure we will need more than today to recover so you can find us here till Friday.
