Welcome Summer!

Memorial Day means the beginning of the summer. Kids are getting out of school, the weather is getting warmer, and the pools are opening up. We welcomed summer in style this past weekend down at Lake Blackshear.

According to Lilly, rather than having the usual pancakes on Saturday morning, we had "Flyin' Flapjacks". After breakfast, Charlotte was entertained by her cousins.




Later in the morning, we played in the sprinklers down at the dock:



There were many jet ski rides:



And it wouldn't be summer if you couldn't shoot a snake while riding in a canoe:



To end the day on Saturdy, all of Judd's family came to the lake and Judd's grandmother and great aunt made fried chicken. My mouth is still watering thinking about it.

Charlotte started the day on Sunday with a bath before church in her grandparent's sink:



After church I made the cousins sit down for a photo shoot.



Charlotte ended her visit with a nap in Grandaddy's lap.


I know I'll be complaining about triple digit power bills, heat, and humidity in a month or so, but for now I'm so happy that summer is here!

We had such a good time with all of you this weekend. Charlotte is a joy. It is always entertaining to have the 3 girls together.
Love, Nina

What a wonderful weekend you had! And, what beautiful pictures of the three cousins. Charlotte looks as if she is thoroughly enjoying herself.

These pictures are great. We had so much fun with ya'll and I can't wait until we all go to the beach in July. Lilly has talked about Charlotte lots but she talks about her Uncle Judd the most. She thinks he is the funniest person alive.

I love the one in the sink!

Looks like you had lots of fun! Have to agree with Drena. I love the one in the sink - something about the little look she is giving!
