Our over due 4th of July weekend pics!!

For weeks we had been planning a 4th of July camping trip with some of our friends. (nevermind the fact that it has been 100 degrees PLUS here everyday) Natalie talked me into joining them for just one night! I figured I was depriving my child by not going and I could survive one night!

After packing on Friday and getting all ready, we got a call from Jeff and Nat that there had been an emergency and they were leaving the campsite. I called them right back and unfortunately a child was missing in the lake. They had search and rescue there and divers were looking for the child :( I felt so awful that I had joked all week about trying to get out of this trip, but never imagined something like this happening. We have been searching onlin andcant find anything on the story. I'm hoping in my hert of hearts that it means the child was found and is ok.

So needless to say, I had a very sad little boy...but the Grauls invited us all over for the 4th to swim, drink, grill and spend the night!

He loves hanging with West and Sean and swimming now! Brooks throwing Landon (and Landon will tell you that he went in the deep end and swam by himself to the side..he is very proud!!)
Nicole and Landon
Oh yeah..dont be jealous..this is my best friend rocking the glowsticks!!!
Hanging out watching the fireworks!
Nicole, Gena, Natalie and Steph with the flash... and without the flash! (oh boy..we are such nerds!)

I think I could get used to "residential camping" Air conditioning, bathrooms, no kind of camping! lol

We ended up having a wonderful time and met new friends! Landon forgot all about camping by the end of the day, hopefully he will last until fall weather before he asks again! lol

The next day we headed to the pool (again) with Bryan, Corky, Gavin and Bryan!
He is determined to give me a heartattack!!

Monday night, Natalie and I took Landon and West to the Astros game.
He made this sign at camp to bring with us!
Landon and West! (Landon looks up to him so much!)
We got there early to try and get autographs...we had great seats but snuck up a few rows to get a better chance!
Hall of Famer, Jose Cruz!! (they both got his autograph on their baseball!)
Happy boys!
Yummy ;)
The other autograph they got was Matsui's!!
My little Astros fan (I caught the Astros ball in his glove!!)
The 4 of us!

There you have it...I am just about caught up now! lol (by the time I get around to posting our trip to Lufkin last weekend and our trip to Lafayette this weekend I will be nice and behind again!)

Loving every minute of our summer...hope you all are too!!

Looks like a great 4th. I don't think I would be good with a boy...they play so rough and are so daring I would be freaking out all of the time! :o)

Krystyn said...

Looks like a great time.

How sad about the kid in the lake.

Maybe you should try camping in the fall?

Aren't summer great. & you guys are cute, not NERDS..I love the glow sticks and pictures. LUCKY you at that game. I am hoping to go Monday (company has DUGOUT seats) and my little sister is here from Colorado. I need to get posting. Have a good weekend, you'll be in LA right? We'll miss you on Saturday!

You got some great pictures there girly! I love the action shots in the cool. That little guy melts my heart every time I see his pictures!

Love the dorky glowstick picture too - so something I would do :)

Stephanie said...

Do you guys ever stay still? For you know, just a couple of days? Haha!

I think Landon has become quite the little fish - and yes, he seems determined to give you a heart attack - just remember to breathe :)

Good Luck with holding the camping off until Fall! It's so hot now!

Oh my goodness! You two were certainly busy! Okay, the flip pictures about gave me a heart attack too, but they are SO cool!

Emily said...

Love the pics! Landon is such a cutie pie! I went camping this past weekend and it was muy caliente....but my parents have a travel trailer so we have A/C, bathroom and a shower. Not really camping, I guess.
Any news on the missing child? How incredibly sad.
Hope you are still enjoying your summer!!!!

April said...

You are such a busy girl but it definitely looks like you always have a blast...Landon too!!

Matt said...

Wow, those were great seats at the game! I never got that close to the game when I was a kid.

Looks like you guys are having a fun summer!! I love the no flash picture of the glow necklaces :) Too funny!
