random summer pics

The girls in their matching dresses at church. We don't do matching often due to their age difference so I wanted to catch this moment!
Jack lost his front tooth in June! I was sad, he has such perfect little baby teeth!

Caroline, Claire and Hope in Williamsburg, Va. We picked up Hope to come and stay with us for 12 days, then they are off to Disney in California with their grandparents!

Hope and Caroline at the Beaufort Water Festival. Best cousins and friends!

Birthday dinner for Hope at the Sake House. Afterwards we took her to the drive in movie.

Tricia and Cristy's visit...

My college girlfriends, Tricia and Cristy, drove down from TN with their kids. We did the beach, pool and downtown Beaufort. The kids had the run of the upstairs which worked out well, lots of dancing, wii and ping pong while we had some "grown up parties" on the porch! Lock and Claire play in the rain
Jack and Macy

Moss and Jack at the pool

We called Lock and Claire "grandmom and granddad" all week. Claire referred to Lock as "my friend" and would not let him out of her sight

Fun night out without the kiddos... babysitter brought her brother, had her hands full with 7 kids!

July 4th weekend in TN

Chris, my niece Rebecca and her boyfriend Mike gearing up to raft the ocoee. During our long July 4th weekend, Chris and I got the opportunity to go whitewater rafting with my family. Mom kept the kiddos!
I love being in my hometown for July 4th, there is something about those small town festivals!

Claire and Chris enjoy the train

Jack on the bungee jump which is always a favorite

Caroline in action

We spent the afternoon at my favorite spot as a child at the river. Now this is a favorite of my kids as well. My dad would take me here and we called it "our place".

On our way back from TN, we stopped for the night at Keith and Lauren's in Marietta, Ga.

Jack and Connor, growing up too fast!

Mom visits us in Beaufort

We took mom to Savannah to eat at the Lady and Sons restaurant owned by Paula Deen
The line for reservations was wrapped around the block, Paula is making a killing!

On our way to take mom home, we stopped in Atlanta for a Braves game

All Stars baseball and golf camp

Caroline and her friend Mia made the Beaufort All Stars team this year. We were very proud of Caroline, this is only her first year to play.
Final game, sad it is over

Up to bat

Ready to play

Jack had a blast at golf camp which was offered in our neighborhood and very convenient. The last day he got to play 9 holes with his dad which was exciting for him to show off his new skills.
