Happy 4th of July!

Well, we celebrated 2 things this weekend! First, and most obvious, our country's freedom. We certainly celebrate the freedoms we enjoy, but also the men and women who put their lives on the line to defend those freedoms. Since moving to Cabot, we've met many military families. ALL of which are incredible people with a heart for service...of all kinds. We're so lucky to be surrounded by people who inspire us to be better Americans, Christians and parents.

The second celebration was that GREG IS HOME! He's been gone for two weeks and got to take a break from training to come home for the holiday. Greg got home around 9 pm on Friday night and less than 12 hours later we were on the road to Hot Springs. We spent the next 3 days on the lake and enjoying the sunshine and our family. Jake is getting more comfortable with the water with each visit and this time even did a little pretend swimming. We had a great time and LOVED having Daddy home. He leaves tomorrow morning at 6:30 am for another two weeks. BOOOO...but the training is going great and he is loving his new job! And that, my friends, is worth the 7 weeks of "single-mom'n it."

Here are a few pics from this weekend...

Jake and I hanging out in the pool eating popsicles!
Momma's sweet boy!
I love this picture...look at Greg!
A little stop at Chickfila to play in the AC
This boy LOVES their playground. When we pull into the parking lot he starts screaming "PLAY!"
And they say Jake doesn't share!
He and Roxy are such great friends...well, actually, Roxy tolerates him and Jake LOVES her!
Jake and his daddy!
