Family Fireworks

What a fun holiday we had!  Barry took off so we could head down to the lake for some fun relaxing family time.  We headed down to the houseboat and had fun visiting with my parents, sisters and niece and nephew.  
 Henry got to wear his big boy trunks and hat!
 The water absolutely knocks him out.  The lapping sound of water against the hull combined with gentle rocking makes for a sleepy boy.  He slept better than he ever does at home and after awaking at 6am decided to have cuddle/sleep in time with us until 8:30.....When I HAD to wake him up to eat!  Seriously! 
 This is one of the reasons I just hate going to the lake....the view is absolutely terrible.
 Everybody likes to chill and have fun together.
 This is what we do during baby H nap time! 
 He had his first dip in a baby pool.  It was soooooo hot out with temps once again in the 100's but we had it made in the shade splashing around in this water. 
 Love that my fam got to spend some good time cuddling him.
 Our lake trip ended with a wonderful evening cruise through the harbor before bedtime.  After the sun had set we were able to see fireworks being set off by campers and boaters all around us.  It was a memory we won't soon forget. 
Hope your 4th was great!
